Hartlepool had to settle for a point at home against Barnet following a 1-1 draw. Here’s how the players rated.

Luke Hendrie: Steady home debut and got forward nicely when he could 6

Scott Harrison: Had a real handful in marking man-mountain John Akinde but had good game 6

Magnus Okuonghe: Not as dominant as Saturday but another decent performance 6

Dan Jones: Like Hendrie on the right, solid stuff from Jones on the left 6

Rhys Oates: Opened the scoring and unlucky not to have a second after Hoyte cleared off the line when it was 1-0. Lively 7

Nicky Featherstone: Steady away in middle, not bad but not great 6

Brad Walker: Game seemed to pass him by again. Did win a free-kick in second-half which he hit into the wall 5

Jake Carroll: Couple of bright momemts in first half but faded and was subbed 6

Billy Paynter: You would have put your mortgage on Paynter scoring, but rolled shot wide. Usual hard shift 6

Rakish Bingham: Looked a forlorn figure on Saturday but much brighter here. Set up goal 7


Michael Woods (for Walker 72): Never able to get into it 6

Jordan Banton (for Carroll 76): Put over the best corner of the night with Oates’ injury-time header tipped over by keeper 6
