Made a couple of good saves in the second half. Had to be alert as Wealdstone caused some problems but couldn’t do too much about the goal.
Was a persistent threat down the left as expected. Came close with a free-kick at the end of the first half and played a key role in the second goal. Defended brilliantly to stop Wealdstone scoring at the other end.
Came close to extending his impressive goal tally for the season.
Looked suspect at times at the back but did enough to help Pools see out the win.
Similar to Odusina. Made a few small errors but recovered well.
Just oozes class down the right without having to do anything spectacular.
At the heart of numerous attacks and helped Pools dominate possession. A good finish put the game to bed on the hour mark.
Fantastic work along the byline to set up Armstrong’s opener. An impressive return to the side.
Looked to cause problems with his passing around the box but missed a sitter in each half. Should have scored at least once.
Was in the right place at the right time once again to net his sixth goal in six league games.
A threat from the first whistle with his energy and driving runs toward goal. Missed a couple of good chances but couldn’t miss for his goal to double Pools’ lead in the second half.
On for Holohan 68: Made a crucial goal line clearance as Wealdstone looked to get back into the game late on.
