Which Hartlepool United players have featured the most under Paul Hartley this pre-season

Hartlepool United have just one more fixture to face before the start of the new League Two campaign.

Pools welcome Sunderland to the Suit Direct Stadium on Monday before they open the new season at Walsall.

And Paul Hartley has had to be cognisant over the minutes handed to his players this pre-season with Pools having been short of numbers during the early stages of the schedule.

In total, Hartley’s side have had five fixtures so far against Scottish Premiership side Hibernian in Portugal before a non-league double header with Billingham Synthonia and Marske United upon their return to home soil.

But over the last week preparations have stepped up with the visits of Lincoln City and Blackburn Rovers to the Suit Direct Stadium before the Black Cats round off proceedings.

And here, at The Mail, we look at which players have featured the most for Hartley so far this pre-season by comparing the minutes of all players contracted to Pools.
