Neill Byrne: Solid performance and looked to set a couple of attacks going first half. 6

Jamie Sterry: Involved heavily early on, keen to get involved. His impact not as strong second half. 6

Nicky Featherstone: Impact lessened as first half wore on but always looking to get on the ball. 6

Mark Shelton: Didn't impact the game much first half. Fired wide and should have hit the target after the break. 5

Gavan Holohan: Hit the post with a good effort and then sent a header wide. Should have scored and had several good chances. 6

David Ferguson: Saw a low first half effort saved in the first half, hit the post second half. Got forward well. 6

Jordan Cook: Had an effort ruled out early on for offside.His return lasted a little over half an hour. 5.

Tyler Burey: Looked lively on his first start since returning on loan. Offers something different for Pools. 6
