Match preview: The final away day

29 April 2022

Backed by an army dressed in scrubs and stethoscopes, Hartlepool United travel to Glanford Park for an appointment with Scunthorpe United. Graeme Lee has got the all-clear to travel with his squad, and everyone at Pools will want to finish the season strongly after disappointing recent results.

 
The Opposition
 
The Iron haven't enjoyed the 2021-22 season, currently sitting bottom of the Football League with relegation to the fifth tier already confirmed. They've won just four times all season, and are currently 14 games without a win.
 
The side is led by Keith Hill, and they'll want to restore some pride in the final home game of the season.
 
The History
 
Earlier this season, the sides played out a 0-0 draw at the Suit Direct Stadium, and you have to go back to 2013 for Pools' last win over the Iron. On that day, goals from James Poole and Jonathan Franks saw a side led by John Hughes win 2-1.
 
Team News
 
Injuries have wreaked havoc on Graeme Lee's plans in recent weeks, so he'll be hoping for better news heading into the final away fixture of the season. Chances for fringe players are likely, with the likes of Martin Smith, Fela Olomola, and Isaac Fletcher all possible inclusions.
