Michael Woods is handed a first start since recovering from injury in Saturday’s pre-season friendly outing at Gateshead on Saturday afternoon (3pm kick-off).
However, after returning to fitness well ahead of schedule, the midfielder came off the bench in Tuesday’s friendly against Scunthorpe United and will now be in the start eleven at Gateshead.
Trialist Alex Whittle is given another chance to impress against The Tynesiders after catching the eye during a second half substitute appearance in midweek, while former Leeds United man Zac Thompson is included on the bench.
Admission is £10 for Adults, £5 for Concessions and £3 for Under 16s with tickets available on the turnstiles at The International Stadium prior to kick-off.
We’ll have a full report and reaction from the game here on the Official Website following the final whistle.
Pools: Carson, Magnay, Harrison, Worley, Jones, Whittle, Woods, Featherstone, Walker, Bingham, Paynter.
