Match Preview: Pools at home to Dorking

29 September 2023

After a blow midweek, Hartlepool United are at home again as Dorking Wanderers come to the Suit Direct Stadium on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

The Lowdown

Dorking come into the fixture having won three of their last five fixtures. They're 14th in the National League and under the stewardship of founder, chairman, and manager Marc White, they're looking to build on their 16th-placed finish last season.

In contrast, Pools have won just one of their previous five games, defeating Dagenham & Redbridge away from home a fortnight ago. Last time out, John Askey's side fell to a 2-0 home defeat against Solihull Moors.

The History

The sides have never met before, so this is a chance for fans of both sides to tick off a new team.

Team News

Injuries continue to affect John Askey's options. Kieran Wallace and Alex Lacey both missed out on Tuesday evening, while Callum Cooke, Anthony Mancini, and Dan Dodds are long-term absentees. Zak Johnson is in line to continue in defence after making his debut on Tuesday, while Osazee Aghatise is still awaiting his first start in midfield.

How to Follow

Tickets can be purchased online or at the ticket office in the lead up to kick-off.
