The giant central defender, who signed on Thursday until the end of the season, came in for Adam Jackson, whose 100 per cent record since coming in on loan from Middlesbrough, came to an end.

Matthew Bates recovered from the back trouble which ruled him out of Tuesday night's defeat at Bristol Rovers and replaced Scott Harrison at centre-half.

Pools boss Craig Hignett made one further change, recalling Lewis Hawkins in midfield with Brad Walker moving down to the bench.
