Hartlepool United suffered the blow of losing Rob Jones for tonight's match at Newport County.

The giant central defender was felled by an elbow in Saturday's 3-1 win over Dagenham & Redbridge and forced off at half-time.

Adam Jackson, who was outstanding as his replacement in the second half, took over at the heart of the defence.

Jackson's place on the bench was taken by midfielder Josh Laurent.
