Pools suffered from an EFL Trophy semi-final hangover as they laboured to a goalless draw with the O’s on a flat afternoon at the Suit Direct Stadium.

But Graeme Lee’s side return to action this evening as they welcome Mark Hughes’ Bradford City looking to complete a double over the Bantams.

It is the second of three games in just six days for Pools before they head to Newport County on Friday night.

And that may mean Pools boss Lee could mix things up with his squad tonight to keep players fresh for a tough run of fixtures.

Luke Molyneux was on the bench for the weekend draw with Orient but could return to the starting line-up tonight after coming through a 30 minute spell unscathed.

And here is how we predict Pools will line-up tonight with Lee making three changes.
