Hartlepool United yet again came up short in what was billed as a relegation six-pointer at Halifax Town.
But how did their players rate? Here's our take...
Pools XI (4-3-3)
Scott Loach - Disappointing for the second goal. Will wonder whether he could have done better... 5
Carl Magnay - Looked solid enough for much of the encounter but an error for the second... 4
Louis Laing - One brilliant block but given a torrid night by the Halifax frontmen... 4
Scott Harrison - Another who really struggled with the pace... 4
Blair Adams - Part of a back four torn to bits by the hosts.... 4
Nicky Featherstone - Did little to dictate the pace, although never stopped wanting the ball... 4
Michael Woods - Not his best day. Barely noticed... 4
Conor Newton - Lively, found space well. Did little to have much of an impact in the final third, though... 5
Devante Rodney - A woeful night for the youngster. Chalk and cheese from the weekend... 4
Rhys Oates - Gave his all but it was just not enough... 5
Jake Cassidy - Put in a shift and a half up top, a lot of the time with little support... 6
