COLIN Cooper has made two changes to his Hartlepool United side for this afternoon’s visit of York City to Victoria Park in Sky Bet League Two - with loan signing Luke Williams coming straight into the team.

Left-back Darren Holden also comes into the side in place of the suspended Jordan Richards, with Williams starting in midfield after signing from Middlesbrough for the next month.

The 20-year-old starts in place of Jack Compton who drops down to the bench.

Meanwhile, other new signing Manchester United’s Jack Barmby, 19, the son of former England international Nick, starts on the bench.

Both Barmby and Williams are attacking midfield players, also at home on either flank.

Holden is set to start at left-back, with captain Neil Austin moved across to his familiar right-back berth.

Marlon Harewood makes his home debut for Pools, up front alongside Luke James, 19, who is the current top scorer with 10 goals.
