Here's how Pool's players rated:

Mark Howard - 6

Made a strong early save to deny Lyle Taylor and helped relieve pressure by plucking a number of crosses out of the air.

Donervon Daniels - 7

Produced a crucial goal-saving block at one end and came close to netting with a long-range screamer at the other.

Ben Heneghan - 8

Stepped up to the challenge when Charlton were in the ascendancy, winning every header and making crucial blocks.

Curtis Tilt - 6

Fortunate to remain on the pitch after committing a foul while already on a yellow. His hip injury will cause concern.

Liam Feeney - 7

Involved in lots of Pool’s good play in the first half and provided the dangerous cross for Armand Gnanduillet’s goal.

Marc Bola - 7

Constantly bombing up and down the left flank and produced some dangerous balls into the Charlton box.

Ollie Turton - 8

Outstanding display. Stood up to the plate in the absence of Jay Spearing, constantly tracking back and winning the ball.

Chris Taylor - 7

Made a vital pass in the lead up to Pool’s first. Put himself about and produced a couple of strong challenges.

Jordan Thompson - 7

Unsettled Charlton’s shaky defence in the first half with a number of dangerous crosses into the box.

Joe Dodoo - 7

Denied by a wonderful fingertip save against his former club, while also stabbing just wide of goal early on.

Armand Gnanduillet - 7

Held the ball up well and gave the Charlton defenders a torrid time, before tapping home for his eighth of the season.
