Matthew Bates has named an unchanged starting eleven for this afternoon’s Emirates FA Cup tie against Kidsgrove Athletic at The Super 6 Stadium (3pm kick-off).
The Pools boss has resisted the temptation to make changes to his line-up for the game and instead names a strong team to face to Evo-Stik West Division outfit.
Bates is also able to name seven substitutes on his bench for the FA Cup, which allows Paddy McLaughlin and Myles Anderson to return to the matchday squad following injury.
Pools: Loach, Donaldson, Kioso, Davies, Magnay, Kitching, Featherstone, Noble, Woods, Muir, James.
Subs: Catterick, Richardson, Anderson, Hawkins, McLaughlin, Hawkes, Dinanga.
Kidsgrove Athletic: Kurasik, Freeland, Morris, Bergin, Butler, Rhodes, Diskin, Williams, Budrys, Malbon, Williamson.
Subs: Burzynski, Rumenio, Saxon, Cole, Twyford, Jepson, Austin.
