How did the players rate individually on the night? Luke Vinton has his say...

Pools XI

Scott Loach – Very little to do but remain focused and commanded his area expertly. Will have been disappointed to concede just before half-time...6

Lewis Hawkins – Comfortable on the ball throughout despite playing out of his usual position...7

Louis Laing – Solid and organised for the majority of the game...7

Carl Magnay – Lead by example and did not offer much for Bromley in terms of attacking threat...7

Blair Adams – Brilliant in the first half and was a big threat going forward...7

Nicky Featherstone – Battled for every ball and was involved in some fine passing moves...7

Josh Hawkes – A goal on his first full start – could not have asked for a better debut...7

Conor Newton – Covered every blade of glass and was not afraid to get stuck into a tackle. An important defensive header near the end...7

Michael Woods – Never stopped running and deserved his goal with a sweet strike...7

Jake Cassidy – A nuisance for the Bromley defence and was unlucky not to score in the second half...7

Rhys Oates – Caused Bromley problems and deserved a first-half goal...6

Subs

Devante Rodney (for Rhys Oates 45) – Difficult for the centre halves to handle and produced a clever assist for the second goal...6

Jack Munns (for Josh Hawkes 90) N/A
