Hartlepool United were not at their best, but they got the job done, winning 2-1 at Yeovil. Here are the player ratings

Adam Bartlett: Not a great deal of glovework required but what he needed to do, he did well. 6

Brad Halliday: Started the move which led to the Pools winner. Was involved heavily going forward and produced good defensive play too. 6

Scott Harrison: Has taken the lead defensive role and performed it well. Not particularly stretched at any point, but strong throughout. 6

Andrew Boyce: His partnership with Scott Harrison continues to grow. Did the basics right. 6

Jake Carroll: Lost count how many times the full-back has over-hit free-kicks and corners, but here he got it spot on. 6

Matty Bates: Has given Ronnie Moore a selection headache by playing the Carl Magnay role so well. Very effective again just in front of his centre-halves, cutting out a lot of Yeovil threat before it got anywhere near the Pools box. 6

Nicky Featherstone: Quietest game of season but seven minutes from time he picked out Kudus Oyenuga with a super pass which led to the winner. 6

Michael Woods: Similar sentiment for Woods. There were a couple of nice runs into the home box but would be great to see more shooting. 6

Rhys Oates: Lively, again, much of the best play from Pools involved the positive 20-year-old. 7

Billy Paynter: Found himself isolated at times but was involved in the build-up to the goal and had a couple of neat link-ups with Fenwick and Woods: 6

Scott Fenwick: Depending on who you are siding with, he returned to the starting XI with a goal. Brought off early but may have still given Ronnie Moore a selection poser on Tuesday.

Kudus Oyenuga: Will have an assist to his name though it was a badly hit shot which set up the winner. Only steady, but that was just his second appearance. 6

Brad Walker: Big, big impact from sub. Will get a welcome start against Bristol Rovers. N/A
