Scott Loach - Pools' man of the match. Some vital stops in the encounter. Will have been disappointed to concede so late... 8

Lewis Hawkins - Exposed on one or two occasions... 5

Louis Laing - A much better performance. Did not go into his shell after a shocker earlier in the week... 6

Carl Magnay - Looks a much better centre-half than he ever has at right-back this season... 6

Blair Adams - One or two wayward passes. Having raised the bar recently, fell slightly below that on the day... 5

Nicky Featherstone - Has been influential of late. Game passed him by... 5

Conor Newton - Plenty of running without the ball, little chance to have an impact on things with it... 6

Josh Hawkes - Hit the bar with a cracking 30-yard effort. Was the closest Pools came to scoring... 6

Michael Woods - Another who failed to deliver. Was not for a lack of effort, mind... 6

Jake Cassidy - Was never anywhere near the box. His best work was done far too far from goal... 6

Rhys Oates - A couple of bursts from deep in the first half, but little of note in the second... 6


Ryan Donaldson (for Newton 68) - Did not have much of an impact... 5

Devante Rodney (for Oates 68) - His introduction changed little... 4
