•    Full ticket and travel details

TEAM NEWS
United welcome Wes Burns, John Campbell and Chey Dunkley back into the squad as they travel to Hartlepool. The trio were ineligible for the FA Cup trip to Tranmere on Tuesday night but return as the U's look to bounce back from their cup exit at Prenton Park.

Former Darlington and Jarrow Roofing striker Campbell could be set for his first senior appearance as he returns to his native north east, with two goals in two development games underlining his potential. However the game is a little too soon for fellow striker James Roberts, who played his first 45 minutes after injury in Wednesday's development game at Bournemouth. Sam Long returns to the squad after his loan at Kidderminster came to an end but Michael Raynes is again ruled out with an infected toe.

See Andy Whing and Michael Appleton give their thoughts ahead of the game in Yellow Player where we also have a great interview with Manor Legend Jason Seacole.

THE OPPOSITION
Saturday sees Ronnie Moore take charge of Hartlepool for the first time and the 61-year-old boss is demanding an extra 20% from his players as they look to climb off the bottom of the table.

“They aren’t my players at the moment, but if we can get another 20 per cent out of them then all the better," he said. "My teams always work hard – that is not an extra for me – if you are picking your wages up then come out here and get a sweat on and roll your sleeves up. If you do that then the crowd get behind you. They have worked hard all week and want some enjoyment.

"I can take pressure all day long – pressure is for wimps. This is about earning a living and going out and earning results."
