The Blues are six points adrift of the League One play-off places after winning nine of their 12 matches.
Steve Tilson's side suffered a 3-0 defeat to Hartlepool at Victoria Park in December and McCormack is hoping for a reverse in fortunes this time around.
"Everything about that night was dismal and disappointing and we want revenge," McCormack told the club's official website.
"We got spanked and it was a long journey home for us and our fans.
"We owe them one so hopefully it will be us giving them a bit of a drubbing this time and they will have to endure a miserable trip home, just like we did."
