Our Pools reporter Liam Kennedy has delivered his verdict following the game - scroll down and flick through our gallery to see how each player performed.

A mixed bag. Missed a cross in the first which almost resulted in a goal, a brilliant save from Jobi McAnuff in the second... 6
A real threat in the opposition area with his height. A leader at the back, too... 6
In the wars in this one. Assaulted twice, once in the area and one on the wing. Nothing given. Brave show... 7
Much more influential in the second 45. Skipper grew into this one... 7
A much more positive display from the midfielder. Started most of Pools' attacks... 7

Drifted in and out in this one but you can see the player is growing in confidence under manager Craig Hignett... 7
Went off after 43 minutes. Looked like a bit of a nasty one. Pools will hope the knee injury is not too serious... 6
His best game yet in a Pools shirt. Showed considerable promise in this display with his passing and attacking intent... 7
Excellent first half, faded a little in the second. Still three in three is decent work for the frontman... 7
Outstanding running for the penalty. Worked his socks off and was a real outlet on the break... 7
Penalty missed but influential on arrival, having a hand in the goal. Let his tempers fray late on... 7
