Match Preview

Pools hoping for Poole return Hartlepool striker James Poole could return to the squad for the game against Scunthorpe following a hamstring strain. Poole missed Saturday's defeat at Sheffield United, but has made good progress in his recovery and could give new boss Neale Cooper, overseeing his first home game in his second spell in charge, an extra attacking option. But Cooper may be forced to give Sam Collins a late fitness test after the defender sustained a foot injury at Bramall Lane. Teenage pair Jack Baldwin and Luke James are hoping to retain their places in the squad. Defender Baldwin, 18, has started the last three games in central midfield, while James, 17, stepped off the substitutes' bench in each of those matches. Another defender, Stephen Wright, is still struggling with an Achilles injury that has kept him out of the last four games, while strikers Colin Nish and Colin Larkin are still sidelined following respective knee surgery. Pools are chasing their first home win since a 3-0 victory over Bury on September 17, having lost their last eight games at Victoria Park. Scunthorpe skipper Cliff Byrne is hoping to stave off a groin injury in time for the trip. The Irish defender has been dogged by the problem for the last month and was forced out of Saturday's home draw with Chesterfield after suffering a recurrence. But Scunthorpe's quest for a first win since the end of October will be boosted by the return of defender Eddie Nolan from suspension. Sam Togwell stepped in at left-back for Nolan against Chesterfield and could switch to right-back if Byrne fails to make it. Another defender, Paul Reid, may be in contention for his first appearance in six weeks after a groin problem. Goalkeeper Josh Lillis (knee), striker Matt Godden (hip) and midfielders Damien Mozika (ankle) and Michael Collins (Achilles) remain long-term absentees.

Match Report

Nine and counting for Pools Hartlepool suffered an unprecedented ninth successive home defeat as Scunthorpe became the latest to taste success at Victoria Park with a 2-1 victory. Neale Cooper's first game back in charge of Pools ended in disappointment as the Iron won away for only the second time this season and registered their first three points in eight games. Scott Flinders made a good save to deny Andy Barcham before he was beaten after 32 minutes, Garry Thompson bursting forward and sending over a clipped cross which was turned in by the advancing Sam Togwell. Fifty two minutes had passed before Pools created an opening as Adam Boyd's volley was blocked by Niall Canavan, before the striker headed wide seconds later. Substitute James Brown thought he had levelled only to see his downward header bounce high over the bar. And the visitors made it two-nil after 74 minutes with a classic counter-attack. From a Pools throw-in deep by the opposition penalty area, the ball was cleared and Thompson took possession in his own half and raced away before clipping past Flinders. Pools got one back with seven minutes remaining, Andy Monkhouse firing in from 25 yards but it was too little, too late.
