TEAM NEWS: Preston v Pools

HARTLEPOOL United make one change for tonight’s League One affair at Deepdale (kick off 7.45pm).

Neil Austin, who returns from suspension, replaces Jack Baldwin at right-back.

Other than that it’s a case of ‘as you were’ for the team who drew 1-1 at Bournemouth on Saturday.

That means Neale Cooper’s men will again line up in a 4-4-1-1 formation with Tony Sweeney, who has shaken off a calf problem, supporting lone striker, Steve Howard, from his advanced midfield role.

Pools: Flinders; Austin, Collins, Hartley, Horwood; Franks, Murray, Walton, Monkhouse; Sweeney; Howard. Subs: McHugh, Humphreys, Poole, Baldwin, Holden, Lynch, James
