Hartlepool United starting line-up to face Chesterfield confirmed – one change as top scorer returns

The Hartlepool United line-up to face Chesterfield has been confirmed.

Saturday, 1st May 2021, 4:24 pm

Pools boss Dave Challinor made one change from the side that beat Wealdstone 7-2 a fortnight ago as Luke Armstrong returned to the starting line-up in place of the recalled Richie Bennett, who returned to his parent club Stockport County earlier this week.

Apart from that, Pools are unchanged though the bench looks considerably different with new signings Zaine Francis-Angol and Harvey Saunders coming in. Midfielder Tom White has also been recalled to the matchday squad after missing out at Wealdstone while Danny Elliott and Ryan Donaldson keep their place on the bench.

Luke Molyneux and Luke Williams are notable absentees for Pools as they look to continue their title charge live on BT Sport this evening.
