Pools let yet another lead, and more points, slip on home soil against League Two strugglers Leyton Orient.
But how did the players rate in the 3-1 Northern Gas & Power Stadium loss to Leyton Orient?
Pools starting XI
Trevor Carson - was at fault for the opener, letting a Semedo shot squirm under his body. Could do little about the other two, but flapped at a cross in the first-half, too... 5
Jordan Richards - let Palmer have far too much time and space for Orient's third. Not a good day for the full-back... 5
Toto Nsiala - for 45 minutes was his usual all-action self. That all changed in the second period, though... 5
Liam Donnelly - strangely in a back four which struggled Donnelly didn't have all too bad a day... 6
Jake Carroll - Got caught out of position on a couple of occasions... 6
Nicky Featherstone - Assumed his return would bring a calming presence in the middle. It did, for 30 minutes or so, then things unraveled... 6
Josh Laurent - His movement in the first-half was outstanding. Closed down brilliantly. Deserved his goal... 7
Lewis Hawkins - Gave his all. Never stopped running from minute one... 6
Lewis Alessandra - Was bright for the opening half an hour or so then faded out of the game, somewhat... 6
Padraig Amond - missed two or three gilt-edged opportunities. Definitely left his shooting boots at home, but was a constant threat... 6
Nathan Thomas - Always willing and available down the left but had little chance to really hurt the opposition... 5
