Craig Hignett named an unchanged side for Hartlepool United's League Two trip to Crawley Town.

As feared, giant centre-half Rob Jones did not make the journey to the Sussex ground after suffering a blow to the head in last Saturday's win over Dagenham & Redbridge.

Adam Jackson continued at centre-half alongside Matthew Bates.
