Youth Team In Action At Rotherham

1 February 2013

Pools Youth Team will make the trip to face The Millers on Saturday morning.

Pools Youth Team make the trip to face Rotherham United on Saturday as they return to Youth Alliance League action (11am kick-off). 

John Hewitson's men were without a game last weekend and will be keen to return to winning ways on the back of three matches without a victory. 

Pools secured a hard-fought 1-0 win over The Millers on home turf earlier in the season but Hewitson knows it will be no easier in the return fixture. 

"It was a very close and competitive game when we played them last time and we really had to earn the win," he told us. 

"Rotherham have some good young players, some of whom played against us for their Reserves on Wednesday, so we know what kind of game to expect. 

"Even though we only drew last time out against Bradford City I thought we played very well and there were plenty of plus points to build on so we have to take those in to this weekend." 

Ben Wignall (knee), Jonny Wright (hip), Dan Jones (ankle) and Kerry Hedly (knee) are all missing for Pools; Callum Hope - on work experience from Sunderland - is named in the starting line-up. 

The game takes place at Roundwood Sports Complex on Green Lane in Rotherham and we'll have a full report here on the Official Website on Monday. 

Pools: Foden, Brown, Nearny, Tuck, Turner, Walker, Harbottle, L Green, Hope, Mitchinson, Halpin.
