TOMMY Miller will tonight make his long-awaited comeback for Hartlepool United in a reserve clash with Hull City.
The experienced central midfielder has been out injured for three months with a calf injury but will start at Billingham Town’s Bedford Terrace ground tonight (KO 7pm).
Miller has spent time at a specialist rehabilitation centre at the National Football Centre in Burton recently and will step up his recovery with a 60 minute run-out against Hull.
Also set to feature – subject to clearance – are trialists Ebby Nelson-Addy and Shepherd Murombedzi.
The pair have both been training with Pools at Maiden Castle, in Durham recently.
The Final Third Development League fixture is free for Pools season ticket holders, with regular admission prices £5 for adults and £3 for concessions. Kick-off is 7pm.
Pools: Maxted, Nearney, Green, Turnbull, Richards, Walker, Miller, Holden, Nelson-Addy, Murombedzi, Smith.
Subs: Barber, Blackford, Jewson, Howes, Armstrong.
