TEAM NEWS: Burton Albion v Hartlepool United, three changes for Pools

COLIN Cooper made three changes to his Hartlepool United side for today’s crucial League Two trip to Burton Albion.

The two Jacks, Barmby and Compton, were relegated to the bench after struggling in the single-goal defeats to Portsmouth and Chesterfield.

Jonathan Franks came in on the right of midfield with fit-again Andy Monkhouse returning after a five-match injury absence on the left.

Marlon Harewood was named on the bench with James Poole coming into the side in his place.

Pools went into their first visit to the Pirelli Stadium just two points above the League Two relegation zone after four of the teams who started Good Friday below them all drew 1-1 yesterday.
