Skipper Andrew Davies has made a quicker than expected recovery to take his place in the heart of the Pools defence for today’s game at The Shay Stadium (3pm kick-off).
The central defender has missed the last eight games with ankle ligament damage but has been declared fit and goes straight back in to the starting eleven.
Ryan Donaldson is sidelined with a hamstring problem so doesn’t feature at Halifax, while Josh Hawkes returns to the substitutes’ bench.
Pools: Loach, Magnay, Davies, Anderson, Kioso, Featherstone, Noble, McLaughlin, Kitching, Muir, James.
Subs: Richardson, Newton, Woods, Hawkes, Dinanga.
