Match Preview

N`Diaye poser for Hart Paul Hart must decide whether to hand a full debut to Alassane N`Diaye as Swindon welcome Hartlepool to the County Ground for a must-win clash. The on-loan Crystal Palace midfielder has spent his first couple of weeks in Wiltshire getting his fitness up to speed and came on for the final nine minutes of Tuesday`s disappointing 1-0 defeat at Exeter. Hart now has to decide whether he is ready to start against Pools or if he is handed more time from the bench. Aside from regular absentees Vincent Pericard and Milan Misun (both knee), the Robins boss has a full-strength squad to select from with no new injuries from the midweek reverse at St James Park. Hart has targeted five wins from Town`s remaining seven games in order to secure League One safety, making all four of their remaining home fixtures crucial. Hartlepool first-team coach Mick Wadsworth has several injury worries. Striker James Brown will continue to miss out with an ankle problem and defender Neil Austin remains sidelined through a calf tear. Top scorer Antony Sweeney will be absent for the fourth game in a row as he continues to recover from a bad gash on his ankle. Forward Ryan Donaldson has returned to Newcastle after his loan deal expired. He failed to score in 12 appearances. Wadsworth has made three substitutions in each of Pools' last six matches and is likely to call on options from the bench once more. The sides shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw when they met in August, with Hartlepool surrendering a two-goal advantage. Pools have not kept a clean sheet away from home since January 18.

Match Report

Ritchie makes point for Robins Matt Ritchie salvaged a point as Swindon battled to a 1-1 draw against Hartlepool. But after recovering from conceding a bizarre goal, a point may not be enough for the Robins' diminishing hopes of avoiding relegation from League One. Swindon's Phil Smith only learned a half hour before kick-off that he was playing after David Lucas was injured in the pre-match warm-up and the replacement keeper gifted Hartlepool an opening goal. Smith safely fielded a corner but his attempt to launch an attack only saw him throw the ball to Pools defender Evan Horwood who side footed it into an empty net from 25 yards with Smith scrambling in vain to make his ground. Hartlepool were reduced to 10 men after 55 minutes when Gary Liddle was shown a straight red card for a poor challenge on Paul Caddis, and Swindon took advantage when Caddis provided a tempting cross for Ritchie to bullet in a header from eight yards. Swindon laid siege to the Hartlepool goal and almost snatched a winner when Alassane N'Diaye saw his shot scrambled off the line by Horwood.
