His lack of pace was, for the first time, exploited by a clever Fylde frontline... 5
Committed and full of passion. Probably the best of the four... 6
Another difficult day for the defender. Struggled from the outset... 5
His influence has dropped off a cliff of late. Never stops wanting the ball but has not been getting things moving quick enough... 5
Had the armband again. Took some criticism from the fans. Is an honest pro but is doing little to cement his place in the side... 5
Missed an absolute sitter. But was Pools' main influence in an attacking sense... 7

Justified his selection with a few jinking runs. Faded late on but that is likely to be the case for a lad who has not played a lot of football... 7
Brilliant in the early stages. A right handful in a central, lone striker role... 7

(for Newton 67) - Put himself about... 6
(for Hawkes 79) ...N/A
