Timi Odusina’s sending off in the 46th-minute saw Pools play almost all of the second half with 10-men as chances were few and far between.
But Dave Challinor’s side were able to restrict Eastleigh to very few clear-cut opportunities as the sides shared the spoils.
Here are the Pools player ratings from the match...
1. Ben Killip - 6
Had very little to do with just one or two simple saves and catches to make.

2. David Ferguson - 7
Wasn’t able to get forward as much as he would have liked but showed a good side to his defensive game with some strong defensive headers and interceptions.

3. Jake Cooper - 7
Made his debut on the right of the back three before the switch to a back four. Was solid in the air with just one heart in the mouth moment as he almost miss-kicked a clearance across the face of goal.

4. Gary Liddle - 8
Made several strong challenges and blocks to help Pools hold out for another hard earned point despite being a man down.Booked.
