Hartlepool United player ratings from Harrogate Town collapse – how did Dimi Konstantopoulos fare on his second debut?

Hartlepool United crashed out of the FA Trophy in dramatic fashion as a comedy of errors at the back saw Harrogate Town score three in the final 13-minutes of the match.

Pools were 2-0 up and cruising thanks to first half goals from debutant Tyler Hamilton and Ryan Donaldson either side of a Dimi Konstantopoulos penalty save from Jon Stead.

And just when the game looked to be heading to extra-time, the Greek goalkeeper let the ball slip through his fingers as Brendan Kiernan pounced and walked the ball into the goal. Scroll down and click through the pages to see our player ratings from the match..
