Matthew Bates has named a strong starting eleven for this afternoon’s pre-season friendly against Spennymoor Town (3pm kick-off).
The Pools boss has also included new loan signing Marcus Dinanga on the substitutes’ bench for the game after he joined the Club from Burton Albion during the week.
Peter Kioso is missing due to picking up a knock in training, Aaron Cunningham is just back from an ankle injury so doesn’t feature and Paddy McLaughlin is still recovering from a virus.
Pools: Loach, Magnay, Davies, Anderson, Donaldson, Featherstone, Noble, Kitching, Hawkes, James, Muir.
Subs: Catterick, Woods, Hawkins, Newton, Dinanga, Richardson, Cassidy, Laing.
