Match Preview: Pools travel to Kidderminster – News

After a fantastic win away to York City on Saturday, Hartlepool United travel to Kidderminster on Tuesday night (7.45pm kick-off).

The Lowdown

Pools’ win was their first since early October, with injuries putting paid to early-season promise for John Askey’s side. With key players like Callum Cooke and Kieran Wallace back in the picture, Hartlepool will be looking up the table as we head towards a busy festive period.

Kidderminster are bottom of the National League, having won just three games all season. They’re without a win in five, and manager Russ Penn will be looking for positive results sooner rather than later.


The sides have met just six times in the past, with the last meeting back in 2003. Pools have won three times, Kidderminster have won eleven, and two matches have ended in a draw. The last match ended in a 2-2 draw, with Darrell Clarke and Eifion Williams on the scoresheet for Pools.

Team News

David Ferguson could return to the squad after serving a one-game suspension on Saturday.

Charlie Seaman and Matty Dolan will be monitored ahead of Tuesday evening after struggling with recent knocks.

Pools’ injury list still features Anthony Mancini, Dan Dodds, Luke Hendrie and Alex Lacey, though Mancini has summarized light training.
