Hartlepool Preview

15 January 2019

Simon Weaver's men return to National League action this weekend as they welcome Hartlepool United to The CNG Stadium.

Town's home ground will also be welcoming BT Sport for the 12:35pm kick off, with the fixture set to be the first time ever that Town have played a home league game live on TV.

Town will be looking to get back to winning ways in the league having gone five games without a win, picking up one point against AFC Halifax in that run.
Although league form hasn't been up to the impressive standard that Town set earlier in the season, Weaver will take confidence from his side's impressive performance against Dover Athletic in the FA trophy last weekend.
Town came away from the long away trip 2-1 winners thanks to a goal in each half from Jack Muldoon, his 11th and 12th of the season.

In the opposition technical area this weekend will be Richard Money, who has been in charge at Hartlepool since December of last year and has a wealth of experience at this level having previously managed Cambridge United, overseeing the side's return to the Football League after a nine-year absence.
His side are currently sat 14th in the National league table on 36 points, having picked up one win in their last six fixtures in all competitions, a 2-1 win at home against Gateshead.

Harrogate Town and Hartlepool United have only ever play once in a competitive fixture; Town's first ever away game in the National League earlier this season.
Callum Howe picked up his first ever goal in Harrogate colours to rescue his side a point in the dying embers of the game, with the contest ending in two all draw.
