Hartlepool United 2-1 Blackpool PLAYER RATINGS: How they were rated as Pools booked a spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup

Hartlepool United are into the fourth round of the FA Cup after coming from behind against Blackpool at the Suit Direct Stadium.

David Ferguson and substitute Joe Grey completed a stunning turnaround for Graeme Lee’s side in the second half after Keshi Anderson had given Blackpool the lead early in the first half.

Pools had to withstand pressure in the opening 45 minutes and were a little fortunate to reach the break only a goal behind after Gary Madine saw his header ruled out before the Seasiders’ striker had another header cleared from the line.

Shane Lavery wasted a couple of golden opportunities for Neil Critchley’s side as Pools remained in the game at the interval.

But within 15 minutes of the restart Pools had turned the game on it’s head through Ferguson and Grey.

And here is how Pools players were rated for their FA Cup third round success.
