Pools XI (3-5-2)

The i newsletter cut through the noise

Peter Kioso - Imposing display. Athletic, strong and quick. A player of some potential... 8

Carl Magnay - Dished out some meaty challenges. A leader from the back... 7

Myles Anderson - Coped with the threat down the left well... 7

Ryan Donaldson - Not as many opportunities to advance up the pitch in this one... 6

Nicky Featherstone - Less influence than in the last few games but never stopped wanting the ball... 6

Liam Noble - Too deep in the first half, ran the show in the second... 7

Michael Woods - Much more advanced after the break and it told. Always seems to pop up at the right times in the area, which is no bad skill to have... 8

Mark Kitching - Some quality defensive work from thebig man... 7

Niko Muir - Even when he is not scoring he looks a class act. Some brilliant touches to bring others into play... 7

Luke James - Ran tirelessly for little reward up top. A thankless afternoon for the player, but deserves some credit for his effort... 6
