Hartlepool United caretaker Matthew Bates has made ONE change to his starting XI for this afternoon's clash with Solihull Moors.

Rhys Oates, taken out the team against Guiseley on Easter Monday, is recalled up top, with Devante Rodney dropping to the bench.

Apart from that one change it is as you were for Pools, who are likely to again set up in their 4-1-2-1-2 formation.

Liam Donnelly misses out on a place in the Pools matchday squad, having failed to shake off an ankle and calf problem picked up while on international duty.

Pools XI v Solihull Moors: Scott Loach, Lewis Hawkins, Louis Laing, Carl Magnay, Blair Adams, Nicky Featherstone, Conor Newton, Josh Hawkes, Michael Woods, Jake Cassidy, Rhys Oates.

Subs: Ryan Catterick, Jacob Owen, Ryan Donaldson, Jack Munns, Devante Rodney.
