Hartlepool United player rating against Bristol Rovers

Scott Fenwick.
Scott Fenwick.

Adam Bartlett: Will be upset to have conceded three, dropped in it by two second-half clangers 6

Brad Halliday: Not at the heights of his home debut but steady 6

Scott Harrison: Booked midway through first half with needless foul, but otherwise some decent defensive work 6

Andrew Boyce: OK first half when Pools under pressure, but calamitous second-half error for Bodin’s crucial second 5

Jake Carroll: Steady performance, with a couple of good first-half blocks 6

Matthew Bates: Put in a good first half when Bristol had a lot of the ball, but ran out of steam 6

Nicky Featherstone: Involved in a couple of the brighter moves but otherwise quiet 5

Brad Walker: One good tackle to deny Easter but did not look comfortable out wide when Pools went to 4-4-2 5

Rhys Oates: Laid on a couple of chances for Fenwick and got back to defend 6

Scott Fenwick: Had the best of the chances but missed with a header with a glorious opening when Pools were 1-0 down 6

Billy Paynter: Like Featherstone, he was involved in a couple of the nicer moves but looked isolated again at times 6
