“The game summed up our season,’’ said Crawley boss Richie Barker.“There was some neat football, the odd bit of sloppy defending and we are the width of a post from being a very good team.
“There was fantastic football, excellent football and a tremendous work ethic.We deserved to win the game. “It’s disappointing to concede two goals in the manner we did, but to finish the season in the top ten for a team playing non-league two years ago is a fantastic achievement.’’
Pools boss John Hughes said:“It’s nice to end with some pride and we opened up and caused problems. To come back from losing a goal and go in front was very pleasing. “It would have been nice to win, but this was about the supporters – they have had a great day out and had two good goals to celebrate.
“Second half we fell behind, but opened up – and we were always going to open up. Andy Monkhouse took his goals well, very good finishes. He linked up well with Luke, who was again a constant handful.
“Their equaliser was cruel but that’s football.”
