Bates And Woods To Start For Pools

22 April 2017

Dave Jones has made two changes to his starting eleven for this afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two game against Barnet at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Matthew Bates comes in to make his first appearance since February and will partner Scott Harrison in the centre of the Pools defence.

Nicky Deverdics moves to left-back in place of the suspended Liam Donnelly, with Michael Woods restored to the midfield alongside Nicky Featherstone and Brad Walker.

In a boost for Pools, goalkeeper Trevor Carson returns to the substitutes’ bench ahead of schedule after recovering quickly from a shoulder operation.
