Pools' fixture with Barnet has been rearranged

Hartlepool United's home fixture against Barnet will now have a slightly later kick-off time.

Pools' clash with the North London outfit was initially scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 17 at 3pm - but was then pushed back by 24 hours after being selected for live coverage on BT Sport.

And now the clash has been rearranged once more, with BT Sport requesting a later kick-off time of 4:30pm.

The switch has been made to avoid any clash with England's UEFA Nationals League game against Croatia which will kick-off at 2pm on the same day.

This means that Pools' fixture with Barnet will now take place on Sunday, November 18 (4:30pm kick-off).

Barnet's trip to the Super 6 Stadium will be their first since April 2017, where goals from John Akinde and Simeon Akinola handed the Bees a 2-0 triumph.
