Match Preview: Pools at Halifax

24 October 2023

Hartlepool United travel to Halifax Town on Tuesday night (7.45pm kick-off) as they look to put Saturday's frustrating defeat behind them.

The Lowdown

Pools come into the game on the back of a frustrating defeat, having conceded twice in two minutes to lose away to Aldershot Town last time out. They've won just two in nine, with John Askey looking for a response to recent results.

Halifax are seventh in the National League, replacing Pools in the final play-off place after the weekend's results. Led by Chris Millington, the Shay side features Rob Harker, a former Pools loanee, and top scorer this season Millenic Alli.

Mani Dieseruvwe left Halifax to join Pools in the summer, after bagging 13 goals last season.

The History

Inlcuding Halifax's previous guise, the sides have met 132 times in the past - with Pools winning 51 times and Halifax triumphant on 58 occasions. They last met in March 2021 when they drew 1-1. Pools are unbeaten in their last three matches against the Shaymen.

Team News

New signing Joe Mattock is available for Pools after recently joining on loan from Harrogate Town. Zak Johnson left the action early on Saturday, and a late call will be made on his availability. Callum Cooke is training again, but the fixture at Halifax will come too early for him. Kieran Wallace, Antony Mancini and Dan Dodds remain injured.

How to Follow

Tickets are only available on the gate ahead of Tuesday night, and it is cash-only at the Shay. Admission is priced at:
