Match Preview

Pools pair in fitness race Hartlepool skipper Sam Collins and striker James Poole face a race to be fit for the visit of Rochdale. Collins missed the 2-1 defeat to Scunthorpe on Monday after picking up a foot injury against Sheffield United and although X-rays showed no fracture, the 34-year-old suffered heavy bruising and is doubtful. Poole has been sidelined for the last two games through a hamstring injury, but could be involved against Dale if he shows signs of progress. Colin Larkin will remained sidelined for another three months after undergoing another operation on his knee, while fellow striker Colin Nish has returned to training following surgery on a similar problem but needs to work on his match fitness. Defender Stephen Wright will miss out once again with an Achilles injury that has seen him miss the last five games. Brett Ormerod is poised to make his Rochdale debut. The veteran striker joined Dale this week and is expected to partner Daniel Bogdanovic - who, like Ormerod, has moved to Spotland on a month's loan from Blackpool - in attack. Bogdanovic marked his own debut with a goal, the equaliser in Monday's 1-1 draw with Preston. On-loan West Ham goalkeeper Peter Kurucz also made his Rochdale bow against North End and is poised to keep his place as the medical staff continue to assess David Lucas' recovery from a head injury. Lucas was knocked unconscious in a sickening collision during Dale's 3-0 defeat at Sheffield United last month and was substituted as a precaution 27 minutes into his comeback against Walsall on New Year's Eve after complaining of dizziness. Defender Marcus Holness missed the Preston game and remains a doubt with a thigh problem, while long-term absentees Mark Twaddle (back) and Simon Hackney (abdominal) stay out of action.

Match Report

Pools end poor home run Hartlepool ended their run of nine straight defeats at Victoria Park with a 2-0 win over Rochdale. Neither side offered much in the first-half, but Pools did create the rare openings, with Andy Monkhouse heading over a Luke James corner and Jack Baldwin curling a shot into the arms of keeper Peter Kurucz. Monkhouse also had a header cleared off the line by Stephen Darby, while all Dale mustered was a Nicky Adams shot from 25-yards which went straight at Scott Flinders. Pools introduced James Brown after 68 minutes and six minutes later he was celebrating when he got ahead of Antony Sweeney to head home from close range. And teenage talent James scored a wonder goal in the 80th minute, volleying high into the net from 25 yards. Pools player-coach Ritchie Humphreys was given a late run out for his 500th appearance for the club, as new boss Neale Cooper earned a first win since his re-appointment.
