It's a quick turnaround for John Askey’s side as they make the trip to Moss Lane – the first of two away games this week for Pools.
And Askey remains in search of a response from his side after they followed up the 5-2 defeat at Oxford City with their first defeat at home this season against Woking.
And here we predict how Pools might line-up to face Altrincham:
