MAIL MERIT MARKS: How they rated at Colchester

Jack Baldwin
Jack Baldwin

Flinders 7 – Got to feel for him, made string of top saves but so exposed time after time. MOM.

Baldwin 7 – Was again Pools’ best defender and will be rightly rewarded with start at centre-back tomorrow

Collins 4 – Flat-footed for first and was a worry throughout. Going through bad spell and could now be dropped.

Hartley 4 – Shocking error for second. What has happened to him? Should improve though.

Horwood 6 – Looked good going forward and didn’t do too badly

Franks 5 – Poor decision-making at times and needs more consistency

Murray 5 – Became lost amid the collapse and was duly withdrawn

Austin 6 – Had solid start and looked better than of late

Sweeney 5 – Struggling at present and quality is sadly lacking

Lynch 5 – Great goal and it should have given him confidence, instead he disappeared

Howard 5 – Evidently frustrated and was isolated once Pools went behind


Monkhouse 5 – Put himself about a bit at least

Poole 5 – Playing with no confidence, understandable given in/out nature of his selection
