Ronnie Moore has named his Hartlepool United team ahead of tonight’s trip to Harrogate Railway.

Fresh from their 7-0 drubbing of Billingham Town, Pools play their second pre-season friendly in as many days away at Harrogate Railway tonight (KO 7pm).

Moore has once again named two different line-ups which will play a half each.

Defender Scott Harrison, who missed the Billingham game, will remain on the sidelines with a tight hamstring but is expected to play at Whitby Town on Friday, as are Rhys Oates (groin) and Carl Magnay (foot) who will both sit out this evening’s game.

Moore will use the friendly as another opportunity to run the rule over trial trio Fergus Bell, Leon Dawson and Johnny Giles.

The trio are all vying for a contract at Pools and Moore has given them a three-game deadline to impress, as revealed by SportMail.

Admission prices for tonight’s fixture at Station View are £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and £1 for Under 16s.

Pools First Half: Carson, Richards, Bates, Nearney, Oyenuga, Featherstone, Carroll, Hawkins, Walker, Bingham, Smith.

Pools Second Half: Bartlett, Duckworth, Worley, Parnaby, Green, Bell, Nelson-Addy, Dawson, Giles, Fenwick, Paynter.
