Hartlepool United fought tooth and nail to hang on to a National League point against Boreham Wood - a result which opened up the gap to the bottom four to four points.

But how did Pools' players rate in the clash? Liam Kennedy has his say...

Pools XI (4-1-2-1-2)

Scott Loach - Tipped an Angelo Balanta effort off the post. Quality stuff... 7

Carl Magnay - Caught out by the pace of the Boreham Wood frontline on one or two occasions... 5

Liam Donnelly - Looks a level above this division at times. Class from minute one... 8

Scott Harrison - Given a torrid time. Red-carded in the second-half... 4

Blair Adams - Much more solid. As usual a threat going forward but much better defensively... 7

Nicky Featherstone - Sat in front of the back four and protected them relatively well... 6

Lewis Hawkins - Covered every blade. Worked his socks off for the team... 6

Conor Newton - Almost added to his tally, cracked off the post in the first-half... 6

Michael Woods - Got forward to support the front two at every opportunity... 6

Jake Cassidy - Held it up well. Went close with a header in the second 45... 6

Rhys Oates - Didn't quite hit the heights of midweek but put in yet another solid shift... 7
