One or two shaky moments but also a touch of class to deny Chris Holroyd in the second half... 6
Caught out of position on occasions but his energy, athleticism and pace more than makes up for that... 6

More bad luck on the injury front for the young defender who went down in some pain clutching his knee just before the half hour... 6
Has underrated ability on the ball. A good, solid defender. You can see why he was top of the manager's transfer hit list... 7
Better in the centre than on the left. Much more at home alongside Kerr... 7
A hit and miss opening 45 but much better in the second half. Made things tick in Pools' best period after break... 7
Coasted through this one in first gear. He was quality... 8
Ninth goal of the season from the spot a bit fortuitous but he found space in the No 10 role all day. A number of scouts in the stands watching his display... 8
Worked hard out on the right, with little chance to have an impact in final third... 6
A much more busy opening 45 than the second... 6
His workrate was outstanding but his touch let him down on occasions. Should have bagged his sixth for Pools but was a whisker away from a Hawkes cross... 7
Slotted into the back four perfectly. Gave a threat in the final third, too... 7
His energy gave Pools a welcome, late boost... 6
