Dave Jones was forced to make two changes for Hartlepool United's match with Wycombe Wanderers at the Northern Gas & Power Stadium.

Liam Donnelly, who took a knock in the win at Cambridge, and Rhys Oates, who came off just after the half-hour at the Abbey Stadium both missed out.

Nicky Deverdics, who finished last Saturday's defeat at Notts County at left-back, took over on the left of defence.

Lewis Hawkins came into midfield with LewisAlessandra set to take a more advanced role.

Matthew Bates returned to the squad on the bench where he was joined by forward Devante Rodney.
