Underrated on the ball, played it out on a number of occasions... 6
A couple of nervy moments but otherwise solid... 6
Has had a massive influence of late, but little chance against a midfield who towered over the top of him... 6
Tried and tried again to make things happen but struggled to unlock the door. Another decent show... 7
Excellent in the central role. Was strong against a sizeable Solihull XI. Man of the match... 8
Little chance to show what he can do, with Pools penned back in the first half. More involved in the second... 6

A quiet afternoon for the striker... 6
