Paul Murray has made four changes to his starting eleven for this evening’s FA Cup tie against Blyth Spartans at Victoria Park (7.55pm kick-off).
Dan Jones comes in to the side at left-back, while Michael Woods is recalled in to the midfield alongside Nicky Featherstone and Brad Walker.
Jonathan Franks and Sidney Schmeltz are also in from the start and will support Marlon Harewood in attack at The Vic.
There’s a boost on the bench for Pools too, with Jack Compton included among the substitutes almost a month ahead of schedule following knee surgery.
