This evening three points for Hartlepool United would see them safe in the National League.

And with few options available, Matthew Bates has gone with an unchanged XI.

Ryan Donaldson makes just his second start since October, having got an hour under his belt at the weekend at Sutton United. He starts up top against Jake Cassidy.

Scott Harrison, back from injury, is on the bench.

Pools XI: Scott Loach, Lewis Hawkins, Louis Laing, Carl Magnay, Blair Adams, Nicky Featherstone, Conor Newton, Josh Hawkes, Michael Woods, Ryan Donaldson, Jake Cassidy.

Subs: Ryan Catterick, Scott Harrison, Jack Munns, Devante Rodney, Rhys Oates.
