And there are hopes the club could break the 1,500 barrier with more than a week left before the League Two encounter.

Pools have managed to register three wins in their last four in the fourth tier - a sequence that has seen them stretch away from the dropzone.

Dave Jones men now sit nine points above the bottom two, with just nine games of the campaign remaining.

And the recent upsurge has seen the Pools public back their club, snapping up more than 1,000 tickets to date for the Bloomfield Road clash, with that number expected to rise in the coming days, especially if Jones & Co get another win under their belts against Wycombe Wanderers at the Northern gas & Power Stadium tomorrow.

Tickets are priced at just £5.

Just to put that number into perspective, Hartlepool were backed by some 102 Poolies for their 1-0 win at Cambridge United in midweek. And last weekend 427 took in the Notts County loss six days ago.
