Matthew Bates has made three changes to his starting eleven for the final game of 2017/18.

Carl Magnay, Liam Donnelly and Devante Rodney all return to the side for today’s National League fixture at Tranmere Rovers.

Magnay returns after shaking off a hip injury and he will go into the centre of defence alongside Louis Laing, with Scott Harrison dropping to the bench.

Donnelly is also back from injury to return to the right back slot, with Lewis Hawkins pushing into midfield – Josh Hawkes is named amongst the subs.

And in the final change, Rodney returns from a one-match suspension and he will start in a front three alongside Jake Cassidy and Ryan Donaldson, with Rhys Oates taking up a spot on the bench.

Conor Newton has also recovered from the hamstring injury that saw him substituted in the game with Torquay United last weekend, and he also starts but Michael Woods is missing again with knee and ankle problems.

Tranmere Rovers: Davies, Ridehalgh, Sutton, McNulty, Harris, Cook, Norwood, Norburn, Ginnelly, Hughes, Cole.
Subs: Taylor, Mangan, Duggan, Clarke, Monthe.

Pools: Loach, Donnelly, Laing, Magnay, Adams, Featherstone, Hawkins, Newton, Donaldson, Rodney, Cassidy.
Subs: Catterick, Harrison, Hawkes, Orrell, Oates.
