Craig Hignett has made one change to his starting eleven for this afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two game against Leyton Orient at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium (3pm kick-off).
The Pools boss has recalled Nicky Featherstone to the centre of midfield after he completed a three-match suspension following his red card against Luton Town.
That means that Liam Donnelly reverts to a role in central defence alongside Toto Nsiala, with Scott Harrison having to be content with a place among the substitutes.
