Match Preview

Cooper considering changes Hartlepool manager Neale Cooper will consider making changes to his starting line-up for their npower League One curtain-raiser against Swindon at Victoria Park. The Pools boss was unhappy with the performance of his players in the 5-0 Capital One Cup first-round tie at Crewe and could opt to shuffle things around. James Poole is most likely to earn a starting place, after coming off the bench at half-time at Gresty Road, at which stage Cooper's side were already four goals down. Colin Nish and Ritchie Humphreys were both unused substitutes in the game, on their return from injury, and may feature in Cooper's reshuffle. With only Andy Rafferty still on the sidelines with a knee injury, Cooper has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from for the clash against the Robins. Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio insists he will make a late decision on former skipper Paul Caddis. The defender was stripped of the captaincy before The Robins' midweek League Cup win over Brighton and was left out of the squad. Joe Devera is favourite to continue in his absence but Nathan Thompson provides further options for the Italian should Caddis be left out again. Midfielder Gary Roberts and striker James Collins will return to the squad following injury and international duty respectively but may have to settle for a place on the bench. Alan Navarro is set to retain his place in the heart of midfield after scoring a brace on his debut against The Seagulls.
