Missed one or two crosses but one or two decent saves... 6
Inexperienced but settling into the side well. Goals were not from his side... 6
Not his best day. Partnership with Anderson did not look solid in any way shape or form... 5

Both goals came down his side. Had a very poor day at the office... 5
An awful first half defensively was followed up with a barnstorming attacking second 45. A real chalk and cheese show... 6
Was very good going both ways. One excellent block in his own area and one or two shots from distance... 7
His distribution let him down a little on the day... 6
Full of endeavour right to the last, could not unlock the door, though... 6
Lively enough moving across the line supporting Cassidy, end product lacking a little... 6
Worked hard, as ever. Hit the bar with one outstanding effort from 25 yards... 7
A goalscoring return to the Hartlepool starting XI, could have added another with a late header. Won plenty of headers... 6
(For Josh Hawkes 63) Little to no impact off the bench playing in the No 10 role... 4
(for Carl Magnay 87)
