1-0: Toure (47, turned in from close range after a neat cut-back by Kioso)

1-1: Murphy (90, angled header flew across goal into the far side of the net from a right-sided cross)

2-1: Kennedy (90, close range tap in following neat interchance in the area by Donaldson and Featherstone)

Bookings: Tilley (82, foul), Dickinson (90, dissent)

Referee: Steven Copeland (Liverpool): Allowed the players to tackle and let the game flow. As good a performance as you will see from a National League referee 9

Attendance: 3,273

Entertainment: 3/5


6 Killip: Took plenty of crosses in his area competently and he will have busier afternoons. More about staying alert and being switched on than making save after save

7 Kerr: A swift and early return from injury and defended firmly – looked much more assured than he has at times. His standard has been set

8 RAYNES: Held the back three together with his organising and led the others by example as he won challenge and headers all afternoon. One second-half tackle in the area was impeccable

6 Richardson: Did what was asked in the back three, no fuss defending and he cleared his lines when he had to;

7 Kioso: A crowd favourite and on this display, it’s clear why. Combative in the tackle and pushes forward on the right, doing so to good affect to tee up the opener

6 Mafuta: Always involved and roamed around with authority, however on this occasion his passing radar was a bit awry at times, which is unusual for the enforcer

7 Kennedy: A thumping first-half tackle lifted Pools, his last-gasp winner lifted everyone

6 Donaldson: Brings pace to the side from midfield and motors ahead from deep. Should have put Pools two-up with a header from close range he lifted over

7 Kitching: Much improved and matured this season compared to last. Had a lot of the ball on the left side;

8 Toure: Strong and direct. The visiting defenders didn’t know how to handle him at times. Brings an excitement when he gets the ball

6 James: Tightly marked by the defenders who took him down or had arms on him all afternoon. Still did all his work outside the area.
