Match Preview: Pools make the trip to Eastleigh

23 March 2024

Hartlepool United make their longest trip of the season on Saturday afternoon, with a visit to Eastleigh's Silverlake Stadium in National League action.

The Lowdown

Pools are currently winless in three, however Kevin Phillips' side showed great defensive strength last time out to take a clean sheet and point against Southend United. With eight games to go, Hartlepool currently sit 13th in the league table.

Eastleigh, who haven't won in four, are 18th in the table with just two less points than Pools. Last time out, the Spitfires were defeated 2-1 at Barnet. Their forward Paul McCallum is top of the league scoring charts, with 30 goals in 32 appearances.

The History

Saturday's fixture will be the 16th meeting between the two sides. Hartlepool have won twice, in January 2020 and the reverse fixture back in October when a Tom Crawford goal and Mani Dieseruvwe brace set up a 3-1 victory.

Team News

After missing last week's game through illness, Joe Grey has trained this week and is expected to be available for selection.

Dan Dodds, Luke Hendrie, Anthony Mancini, Otis Khan and Josh Umerah all remain sidelined for Saturday's fixture. Khan, however, is expected to return to training within the next week.
