Match Preview

Pools run the rule over Poole Hartlepool striker James Poole could return to action against MK Dons after more than two months on the sidelines. Poole, a summer signing from Manchester City, last appeared in the win at Oldham on Boxing Day due to a troublesome hamstring injury, but is hoping to feature after completing 60 minutes for the reserves in midweek. Manager Neale Cooper could also be boosted by the return of another striker, Luke James, who missed the midweek win at Bury due to a back problem, but the teenager faces a late fitness test. Midfielder Gary Liddle is expected to miss out again due to the calf injury that sidelined him against the Shakers. Forward Adam Boyd staked his claim for a return to the starting line-up with Hartlepool's second goal on Tuesday night. Pools, who have won two and lost two of their last four league games, are five points off the play-offs. Paul Slane could be included in the MK Dons squad for the first time. Slane linked up with the Dons on Monday, a month after agreeing to join the club on loan from Celtic in a deal until the end of the season. Slane, who has had a back problem, played 60 minutes in a practice match this week and will travel to Victoria Park. Charlie MacDonald is a doubt. The striker is nursing a knee injury following the 1-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend. Darren Potter missed that game on the south coast and illness looks set to rule him out again. Fellow midfielder Stephen Gleeson and defender Gary MacKenzie will serve the final games of their respective two and four-match suspensions.

Match Report

Dons frustrated by Pools James Poole scored on his return to the Hartlepool side but MK Dons hit back to earn a 1-1 draw. Poole, out for over two months with a hamstring problem, headed home from six yards after Andy Monkhouse had nodded on a Paul Murray cross five minutes before the break. But the Dons levelled six minutes into the second half when Jay O'Shea nodded in Shaun Williams' cross from close range. Luke Chadwick had hit a post from 35 yards for the visitors after 14 minutes and just before half-time, Dons keeper David Martin tipped a Ritchie Humphreys shot round the post. Chadwick struck the woodwork again in the second half but neither side could come up with a winner.
