Here's how Pool's players rated:
1. Chris Maxwell - 7/10
Made two important saves to keep the Seasiders ahead prior to Crewe’s late equaliser, which he could do little about.
2. Jordan Gabriel - 6/10
Not quite as adventurous as we’ve become used to seeing him. Had plenty of defending to do early on.
3. MAN OF THE MATCH: Dan Ballard - 7/10
Headed home his first goal for the club but was also in dominant form at the back, making some key interceptions.
4. Jordan Thorniley - 6/10
Almost punished for making two poor clearances early on which put Pool under pressure, but improved.
