Hartlepool United boss Craig Hignett has named an unchanged side for this afternoon's visit to Wycombe Wanderers.

Nicky Featherstone will captain the side from the centre of midfield with Nicky Deverdics playing further forward. Josh Laurent completes the central three.

Goalscorers Lewis Alessandra and Padraig Amond continue up top.

Pools XI: Trevor Carson, Toto Nsiala, Matthew Bates, Scott Harrison, Lewis Hawkins, Nicky Featherstone, Nicky Deverdics, Josh Laurent, James Martin, Lewis Alessandra, Padraig Amond.

Subs: Adam Bartlett, Rob Jones, Jake Carroll, Rhys Oates, Billy Paynter, Michael Woods, Jordan Richards.
