Hartlepool United caretaker boss Matthew Bates has made one change for this afternoon's clash with Boreham Wood.

Recalled is Blair Adams on the left of a back four, with Luke George dropping out with a hamstring problem which may see him miss the rest of the season.

As a result Jacob Owen is back on the bench.

Bates has decided to stick with the 4-1-2-1-2 formation which saw a marked improvement down at Aldershot.

Pools XI: Scott Loach, Carl Magnay, Liam Donnelly, Scott Harrison, Blair Adams, Nicky Featherstone, Lewis Hawkins, Conor Newton, Michael Woods, Jake Cassidy, Rhys Oates.

Subs: Ryan Catterick, Louis Laing, Jacob Owen, Josh Hawkes, Devante Rodney.
