Stockport boss Gary Ablett was frustrated with his youthful side after they allowed Hartlepool to hit back from two goals down and claim a 2-2 draw.

Headed goals in the space of a minute from Nicholas Bignall and Michael Raynes stunned the visitors and gave County an early 2-0 lead, but Adam Boyd halved Hartlepool's deficit at the start of the second half and Denis Behan completed the comeback in the 75th minute.

"I thought we almost had the game won at half-time, but we lost a bit of belief. We had a good go, but we needed a bit more confidence to get the ball down a bit more," said Ablett.

"The confidence dipped a bit. We've got to show a bit more discipline in those situations and we've got to tough it out in games like that.

"Full credit to Hartlepool, they exposed our weaknesses, and I think it's fair to say that they got their just rewards for their second-half performance and chances.

"We've got to keep going now though, and we will, but I've no complaints about the outcome.

"It's just a bit frustrating that we've let another two-goal lead slip, just as we did at Yeovil a few weeks back."
