Pools Reserves return to action this afternoon at Burton Albion and there are three trialists included in the line-up for the game at St George’s Park (1pm kick-off).
Danijel Jurisic, Denis Mesic and Danny Ventre will all start in today’s Final Third Development League outing, which is the first Reserves fixture in almost a month.
John Hewitson will take charge of the game and will be hoping the Reserves can begin the New Year with some improved form against the Brewers this afternoon.
“It’s a good chance for the lads on the fringe of the First Team to press their claims,” Hewitson told us.
“We’re pleased that the Reserves games have kicked back in now because it’s important we have these regular games and a chance for the players to keep their match fitness and impress the manager.
“It’s also good for the lads to get the opportunity to play at St George’s Park so hopefully they can put in a strong performance and we can come away with a positive result to start the New Year.”
The game kicks-off at 1pm and we’ll have a full report and reaction here on the Official Website following the final whistle.
