NEALE Cooper has dropped summer signing Simon Walton for today's visit of Scunthorpe United with Paul Murray returning to the side.

It is a first start of the season for the veteran midfield man and he will partner Tony Sweeney in the centre of the park.

Walton, brought in from Plymouth Argyle over the close season, has failed to carry his impressive summer form into the new campaign and is named among the substitutes.

That is one of two changes from the side beaten 2-0 at Notts County 11 days ago with the fit-again Neil Austin replacing Jack Baldwin.

POOLS: (4-4-2): Flinders; Austin, Collins, Hartley, Horwood; Franks, Murray, Sweeney, Monkhouse; Poole, Howard. Subs: Humphreys, McHugh, Luscombe, Baldwin, James, Holden, Walton
