Right now Pools are third bottom with just six points separating Rochdale in the drop zone and 19th placed Harrogate.
Last season Oldham Athletic finished second-bottom with 38 points. When Pools went down in 2016/17 they did so with 46 points.
History tells us that 43.2 points is the season average points total for teams finishing second-bottom.
That is based over the last 15 seasons, with the COVID season of 2019/20 not included in order to create an accurate average total.
This gallery shows each team who finished second-bottom and how many points were won over the last 15 seasons.
