POOLS RATINGS

Scott Loach: One good save from Mitch Hancox, but should probably have done better to cut out the ball which led to the leveller. 6

Carl Magnay: Did well to get through the full 90 minutes on his comeback and got forward a fair bit. Had his pocket picked for the equaliser but overall, a good game. 6

Louis Laing: Steady enough at the heart of the defence, has shown improvement in recent weeks since being dropped. 6

Scott Harrison: Made one surging run forward in second half which almost led to goal but conceded a needless free-kick at the death which led to the goal. Some stray passing too. 4

Nicky Deverdics: His dead-balls lacked his customary class and did not get forward as well as in previous weeks. Caught out for the away equaliser as well. 5

Liam Donnelly: Asked to fill the void left by Nicky Featherstone in the middle of the park and filled it very well, mopped up a lot of ball. 7

Michael Woods: Tucked his goal away nicely and looked bright going forward. 7

Conor Newton: Best game in a Pools shirt, tons of energy and had the most shots out of anyone. MOM. 7

Jack Munns: Showed a few nice touches and almost curled one in, but faded late on and probably should have been given a breather. 5

Jake Cassidy: Struggled to win anything in the air against Keith Lowe and ran out of gas. 5

Rhys Oates: The pick of the forward line, he got at the away defence though his shooting did not match his approach work. 6
