TEAM NEWS

Lanre Oyebanjo (knee), Gavin Tomlin (groin) and Joe McNerney (knee) remain sidelined for the Reds.

Hartlepool's Jordan Richards will miss the clash due to a stress fracture in his back. Harry Worley will also miss out with an ankle injury while Carl Magnay is suspended.


THE FORM GUIDE                

The Reds suffered their first defeat in three games when Morecambe scored a late penalty to seal a 3-1 win at the Globe Arena on Tuesday night.

Hartlepool currently sit one position ahead of Crawley in 17th place. Victoria Park witnessed a 1-1 draw on Tuesday night, Barnet's John Akinde cancelled out Rhys Oates' early goal to get a point for the Bees.


VIEW FROM THE BENCH


: "We need to pick ourselves up and cut out the mistakes from Tuesday night. We know it'll be a tough game, but if we react the way I know we can then I'm sure we'll get something from the game."  Mark Yates


WE’VE MET BEFORE?

There have been two previous meetings in the 2012-13 campaign in League One. A goal from Hope Akpan earned the Reds a 1-0 win on their first visit to Victoria Park and the sides shared four goals in the final match of that campaign at the Checkatrade.com Stadium, a match memorable for the appearance of hundreds of Pools' fans dressed as penguins!
