Humphreys banned for Pools

Hartlepool caretaker manager Mick Wadsworth is once again without Ritchie Humphreys for the trip to Vauxhall Motors. Humphreys was sent off in the first meeting between the two sides and after having his appeal against the dismissal rejected he serves the final game of his three-match suspension and is unavailable. Despite his side's impressive 3-1 win over League One leaders Brighton at the weekend, Wadsworth has changes in mind for the trip to the non-league minnows. James Poole scored his first senior goal on Saturday and could be handed a starting opportunity while Leon McSweeney and Fabian Yantorno are also pressing their claims for a first-team start. James Brown made his return from an ankle injury against Gus Poyet's men and is likely to keep his place up front while fellow striker Adam Boyd is also pushing for a recall to the first XI.
