Match Preview

Wadsworth to ring the changes Hartlepool manager Mick Wadsworth is expected to make changes for the home clash with Preston. Pools slipped to a club record-equalling sixth straight home defeat when losing to Yeovil on Saturday and Wadsworth could be tempted to recall several players to his starting line-up. Central defender Sam Collins is unlikely to shake off the calf strain that has kept him out of the last three matches and strikers James Brown (groin), Colin Nish and Colin Larkin (both knee) remain sidelined. But Wadsworth has no new injury or suspension worries, with midfielder Nathan Luscombe and striker Adam Boyd pushing for places in the starting XI after stepping off the substitutes' bench at the weekend. Goalkeeper Scott Flinders returned to the side on Saturday in place of Andy Rafferty and is expected to start again. Pools' last home success was a 3-0 league win over Bury in mid-September. Preston will be without veteran midfield duo Graham Alexander and Ian Ashbee for the trip. Alexander remains sidelined with the hamstring strain that ruled him out of the weekend defeat to Bury, during which Ashbee suffered a knock to his knee. Nathan Doyle is set to continue in central midfield as a result, having made his debut at Gigg Lane following an emergency loan move from Barnsley. Fellow new arrival Jamie McCombe - at Deepdale on a temporary basis from Huddersfield - is also expected to retain his position at the heart of the defence, although Clarke Carlisle's return from suspension adds competition in this area. Striker Ian Hume remains sideline with a knee problem. North End are on a wretched run of eight defeats in nine npower League Two matches.

Match Report

Mellor piles on misery for Pools Neil Mellor`s goal was enough to defeat Hartlepool as Preston ended their miserable run of form by winning for the first time in 10 npower League One games. Mellor's strike proved the difference against a Pools side which has now lost seven successive home games in all competitions. The hosts should have been awarded a penalty after 16 minutes when Jamie McCombe handled in the area from a Peter Hartley header but referee Jock Waugh played on. North End, winless in the league since September 27, then scored the only goal five minutes later. Mellor picked up a loose ball and drilled a low, first-time shot into the net from 25 yards. Lilywhites goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann saved from Antony Sweeney and James Poole as the home side searched for a leveller. The closest they came to scoring was on the hour mark when Poole galloped forward 70 yards in possession and whipped in a low shot that Stuckmann did well to push around the post. Pools have only scored one goal - a penalty - at home since September 17, a run of 576 minutes.
