That's now nine without victory for Craig Harrison's Pools, but how did each of the players rate? Liam Kennedy has his say...

The i newsletter cut through the noise

Scott Loach - Could do nothing about either goal. Let down by those in front of him... 6

Carl Magnay - It's time like these we will find out if he really is suitable for the armband. Needs to step up to the plate... 4

Louis Laing - Won his aerial duals. Better... 5

Liam Donnelly - Hit the bar and looked solid enough. It's rare to find him at fault for the goals... 5

Blair Adams - Schoolboy error which ultimately cost the game. Simply not been good enough this season... 3

Nicky Featherstone - Really struggled in a midfield unit that looked much of muchness... 4

Lewis Hawkins - Cannot fault the lad's effort. Always puts in 100%, but has lacked quality... 5

Michael Woods - Looked to be switched off at times. Expect much better... 4

Nicky Deverdics - Ineffectual. Gave very little outside of his delivery from set-pieces...4

Jake Cassidy - One brilliant turn and run after out-muscling defender, but that was about it. Week after week he is left isolated. It needs to change... 5

Devante Rodney - Worked very hard, with little end product. Getting better and better, slowly but surely... 6
