Hartlepool United player ratings as Newcastle United loanee stands out in defeat with Graeme Lee suffering first defeat at the Suit Direct Stadium against Bradford City

Hartlepool United were beaten 2-0 by Bradford City at the Suit Direct Stadium.

The Bantams scored twice in six second half minutes to condemn Graeme Lee to his first defeat on home soil as Pools boss.

Pools had chances in the first half through striker Marcus Carver before Joe White struck the bar after the break.

But it was the visitors who hit the front when Matt Foulds capped a swift counter-attack before Yann Songoo added a second.

And here is how Pools were rated in defeat.
