Here's how Pool's players rated:
5. Marc Bola - 5/10
Badly exposed down the left by lack of a presence in front of him, which only invited pressure down his side.
6. Jay Spearing - 5/10
Too often let down by those around him, causing him to be pulled out of position all over the park.
7. Connor Ronan - 5/10
Looked neat and tidy on his debut but Pools dreadful start gave him little opportunity to show what he can do.
8. Grant Ward - 4/10
Completely wasted in a central midfielders role. Looked off the pace early on before being brought off at half-time.
