Hartlepool United's Carl Magnay battles for the ball.
Our Pools writer Liam Kennedy has dished out his player ratings following the game at the Super 6 Stadium - scroll down and flick through our gallery to see who shone and who struggled.
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
