A tough day for HUFC striker Jake Cassidy
A tough day for HUFC striker Jake Cassidy

A second half capitulation ensured Hartlepool United made it EIGHT games without a win yesterday.

But how did each player mark individually in the 4-2 Victoria Road defeat to a rampant Dagenham & Redbridge outfit? Our man Liam Kennedy has his say...

Pools XI (4-5-1)

Scott Loach - Made one or two decent saves, but cannot be highly marked for letting in four... 6

Carl Magnay - Skipper made a return but had very little influence on the side's performance... 4

Keith Watson - One outstanding, goal-saving interception, but a tough day at the office... 5

Michael Ledger - Alongside Watson looked solid enough but the result hardly shines the Sunderland loanee in a good light... 5

Nicky Deverdics - Given a tough, tough time. Is he really a left back? Not on this show... 4

Liam Donnelly - Cannot really be faulted for the goals... 6

Michael Woods - Two goals but struggled with some his defensive work... 6

Lewis Hawkins - Cannot ever fault his workrate... 5

Jonathan Franks - Worked hard. Did a lot of unseen defensive work... 6

Blair Adams - Played further forward by Harrison, did little to justify that. Gave Deverdics little protection. Hauled off at break... 4

Jake Cassidy - Won his fair share in the air but struggled to find his teammates with flick ons... 5


Devante Rodney (for Adams 46) - Certainly livened things up. Full of energy and endeavor... 7

Louis Laing (for Hawkins 86) ...N/A
