Made a handful of strong stops but will have been disappointed to have conceded twice.
Put a good ball in for Armstrong’s goal and defended well when needed.
A back-heeled clearance early on was as good as it got for the Rotherham United loanee. Struggled in the first half and King’s Lynn scored twice down his side. Substituted at half-time.
Caught ball watching for the opening goal but helped Pools regain their composure in the second half.
Distribution from the back left a lot to be desired but threatened at the other end with a couple of decent headers.
Looked a bit leggy at times after playing 180 minutes in the space of three days but still remained a threat down the right side.
Was crucial in helping Pools take control and push for a winner in the second half.
Showed a few clever touches but struggled to influence the game alongside Featherstone.
Was quiet in the midfield with just one shot blasted well over the bar.
Scored his 10th of the season and remained a nuisance all evening.
Had two tame headers early on as King’s Lynn handled his threat well.
On for Cooper 46: Changed the game in Pools’ favour as he headed in his sixth of the season. His pace and directness caused all sorts of problems for the hosts.
On for Shelton 75: Was denied from snatching a winner by a stunning save.
On for Molyneux 87: Had little time to make an impact but still showed a few clever turns and touches around the penalty area.
