Craig Hignett has made three changes to the starting eleven for his first game in charge as Pools host Yeovil Town at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).
Dan Jones comes back in to the team in the left-back role at the expense of Jake Carroll, who has to be happy with a place on the substitutes’ bench for the first time this season.
