Could do nothing about the goal. One brilliant low stop from Frost... 7
Played at right-back and didn't look out of place. Only lasted 45 minutes as Pools went for the more attacking Kenton Richardson after the break... 6
A strong return to the centre of defence for the skipper. Brilliant in both boxes in the air... 7

One late error when he let Kabamba peel off him for a chance but an otherwise aggressive, enthusiastic show... 6
Much better suited to playing in a four-man backline. No longer looks outside his comfort zone... 6
Moved back out to the right, but it was one of his less effective performances... 6
That's 10 for the season for Noble now, and another from open play. Will be disappointed with his set pieces but an assured performance in the middle... 7
Nicky Featherstone
Played on the left but offered little. Busy enough... 6
Probably the pick of the outfield players on the day. Plenty of running and endeavour about him. Won plenty in the air and held it up well, too... 7
One or two half chances which he failed to hit with any conviction... 6
(for Rodgers 46) - Gave Pools a boost when he arrived. Decent 45... 7
(for Featherstone 73) - Is brave enough to take the ball forward. Unlucky not to start... 7
(for Luke James 81) ...N/A
