Matthew Bates has made three changes to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s game against Aldershot Town at The Super 6 Stadium (3pm kick-off).
Peter Kioso returns from a one-game suspension, while Ryan Donaldson also recovers from a hamstring problem and is restored to the starting eleven.
Michael Woods comes in to midfield, with Myles Anderson among the substitutes after missing some training this week through illness.
Niko Muir is able to shake off an ankle problem which forced his substitution in the midweek game at Salford City and he takes his place in the today's line-up.
Pools: Loach, Donaldson, Kioso, Davies, Magnay, Kitching, Featherstone, Noble, Woods, Muir, James.
Subs: Anderson, Newton, McLaughlin, Hawkes, Dinanga.
