Goals from Ryan Johnson, Rhys Oates, Mark Shelton and Gavan Holohan saw Pools claim a comfortable victory against The Terras.
The result means Pools end the season fourth in the National League due to Stockport County winning 1-0 at Yeovil Town.
It means Pools will host Bromley in the play-off eliminator round match at Victoria Park on June 6 (4pm kick-off).
Here are the Pools player ratings from the match…
1. Brad James - 7
Made a couple of straightforward saves and reacted well to claim the ball from the feet of Dallas when it looked a certain goal.
2. Jamie Sterry - 7
Had a lively first half down the right, getting plenty of balls into the box and linking up well with Cass before being taken off at half-time.

3. Lewis Cass - 8
A very composed display with glimpses of real attacking quality when getting forward.
