Bookings: None

Referee: Simeon Lucas: Little fuss, little incident to get involved in 7

Attendance: 3,018

Entertainment: 3/5


6 Loach: Of the two keepers, he had the least to do and didn’t have much to concern himself with;

6 Kioso: Combative, did what he had to do on the right and had a couple of second half scoring openings which he couldn’t take advantage of

6 Edgar: Positioning sense on the pitch sees him right with Kerr the more dominant of the pair

6 Kerr: No fuss, no frills just defends well and solidly when he’s called upon

6 Anderson: Exposed for pace a couple of times out wide, but part of a firm enough back line;

8 Featherstone: Played with a forward drive and determination in the middle, showed more on the front foot than he normally does

6 Donaldson: The safer of the midfielders in there, disciplined and effective while slightly pegged back as Featherstone roamed

8 HOLOHAN: Scored last week, provided an assist this time and offers something different to Pools’ midfield;

8 James: Full of beans, a textbook Luke James performance and took his goal smartly as he dashed across his man to touch home

7 Kabamba: Challenged for everything and brought others into play throughout, went close to adding

8 Molyneux: Always a spark when he attacks the opposition and took up a good position to turn and finish well to win it.
