Ronnie Moore has named a strong line-up for the first pre-season friendly on home soil as Scunthorpe United visit Victoria Park (7pm kick-off).
Trevor Carson, Harry Worley, Carl Magnay, Jake Carroll and Billy Paynter are all set to make their first starts at The Vic, while Rakish Bingham will also make his return following last term’s loan spell.
Dan Jones and Scott Harrison will play alongside Worley at the back, with Carroll and Magnay slotting in to the wing-back positions this evening.
Michael Woods, who dislocated his ankle and fractured his fibula at the end of February, is among the substitutes after making a quicker than expected recovery from the injury.
Admission prices are £10 for adults and £5 for concessions, with tickets available on the turnstiles prior to kick-off.
We’ll have a full report and reaction here on the Official Website after the final whistle, plus full highlights on Pools PlayerHD on Wednesday.
Pools: Carson, Harrison, Worley, Jones, Magnay, Bates, Featherstone, Walker, Carroll, Bingham, Paynter.
