Reserves Ready For Saddlers Test

9 April 2013

Pools Reserves are in action once again this afternoon when they make the trip to face Walsall at The Banks's Stadium (2pm kick-off).

It's one of the second string's longest journeys of the season and Micky Barron is set to field another young side against The Saddlers. 

Unbeaten in three, Barron is looking for a positive performance from his youthful charges to build a strong finish to the campaign. 

"We've got three Reserve games left including this afternoon so I want the lads to make the most of each one," he explained. 

"It's another young side we have out but I'm pretty sure Walsall will be similar so hopefully it will be a good game and we can go out there and express ourselves. 

"I thought we played some good football at times in the draw with Shrewsbury last week so we need to take that in to today's game and hopefully it will lead to a positive result." 

Adam McHugh returns in goal for today's game, while Zak Boagey - who made his first senior appearance as a substitute in Saturday's win over Bury - starts up front. 

We'll have a full report on this afternoon's game after the final whistle. 

Pools: McHugh, Brown, Buddle, Rowbotham, Jones, Mitchinson, Walker, Hawkins, Luscombe, Boagey, Rutherford.
