Pools’ Groundstaff have some extra help in their preparation for Saturday’s League Two match with Wycombe Wanderers at Victoria Park.
This week Dave Brown took delivery of some brand new frost covers and they’ve arrived just in time as the cold weather hits.
“The new frost covers are much easier to handle than the others we have,” Brown told hartlepoolunited.co.uk.
“They will be quicker for us to get on and off the pitch and they should offer protection up to -5 or -6.
“With them arriving this week, we’ve got them out to cover the area of the pitch that is in the shadow of the Town End goal.
“That area is in the shadow throughout winter and is most susceptible to frost.
“With the cold weather at the moment, it’s given us an early chance to try out the new covers which we’ve put on just as a precaution.”
