HARTLEPOOL United suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat at the hands of Northampton Town in Sky Bet League Two.
SportMail’s Richard Mennear gives his player ratings below along with #TerraceTweets from unhappy Pools fans.
Scott Flinders: 5. Wasn’t really at fault for any of the goals but will not have been happy to have conceded five. Was constantly bawling at defence.
Stuart Parnaby: 4. A night to forget. Gave away a penalty and was at fault for at least two other goals. Poor display and was later subbed.
Matthew Bates: 5. Had impressed last two matches but not last night. Defence was all over the place.
Scott Harrison: 5. Similar to Bates, had been so commanding in recent matches. Won his share of headers last night but defence was poor.
Neil Austin: 5. Torrid time down the left-hand side. Chris Hackett got a hat-trick of assists from the left wing.
Ryan Brobbel: 6. MOM. Worked hard all night and didn’t stop running or trying to run at defenders.
Brad Walker: 5. Game passed him by far too easily. Needs to do more.
Tommy Miller: 5. Provided the assist for Wyke but midfield was overran too easily.
Jack Compton: 5. Didn’t do a great deal to influence the game. Pools were second best to everything all night.
Jonathan Franks: 5. Feeding off scraps again. Hard night for Franks up front.
Charlie Wyke: 6. Only played 28 minutes but arguably a contender for MOM. Took his goal really well and looked sharp before being knocked out.
Marlon Harewood: 5. Wasn’t good enough last night and should be winning more headers and holding ball up better.
Jordan Richards: 6. Very unlucky to have been dropped. Came on when it was 5-1.

@HPoolMail do you really want to know what we think. It will probably need sensoring!
Steven Liddell @slidds

Kev Taylor @bigkev8501
@HPoolMail @FrankRHMail #TerraceTweets absolutely awful... Won’t waste any more words on it than that.
Stuart Blackett @stublackett
@HPoolMail Parnaby at fault for 4 of the goals. Poor signing! Just hope there’s 2 teams worst than us this season
@HPoolMail #TerraceTweets why did cooper change a defence that has kept a clean sheet in last 2 games is beyond me, he is clueless, sack him
Tom Clark @TomClark92
