Pools welcome the Dragons to Victoria Park looking to pick up their first home win of the campaign.

Featherstone, who has featured in all six of Hartlepool's matches so far this season, is confident the squad can cope with the demands of the Bank Holiday doubleheader and pick up favorable results.
