With just one win in six games, Hartlepool United are looking to rebound as they travel to Boreham Wood on Wednesday evening (7.45pm kick-off).
Pools won their last away match, defeating Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0, but that's their only win in six games. John Askey's side need a boost, and that could start with a win over 18th-placed Boreham Wood.
The Wood have started the season with two wins, six draws, and five losses, putting them six points behind Pools. Led by manager Luke Garrard, the side features experienced goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore and Timmy Abraham, brother of England and Roma striker Tammy.
This will be just the ninth meeting between the sides, with Pools winning twice in the past. Five matches have ended in a draw, while the Wood have won just once. Last time out, it was a 2-2 draw after goals from Gavan Holohan and Ritchie Bennett in April 2021.
Nicky Featherstone returned to the Club after departing in the summer, and he's available from the start on Wednesday. Matty Dolan, Alex Lacey and Kieran Wallace will be assessed ahead of kick-off on Wednesday. Long-term injuries still prevent Dan Dodds, Anthony Mancini and Callum Cooke from being involved.
