Hartlepool United boss Ronnie Moore has kept faith with Adam Bartlett in goal for today’s League Twon trip to Northampton Town.

Moore had the option of installing big summer signing Trevor Carson into the starting XI for the first time after the Northern Irishman recovered from a toe problem.

But Bartlett, excellent between the sticks, retained the keeper’s gloves.

The only change saw Nicky Featherstone come in for the suspended Carl Magnay.
