Football - Cooper could make changes

Hartlepool boss Colin Cooper may opt to make changes as his side prepare for their third game in six days at Newport.

PA Sport Report

Cooper named the same starting line-up for last week's home FA Cup win over Notts County and the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Rotherham and has no major new injury worries.

Winger Jack Compton is hoping to return to the squad, while midfield duo Antony Sweeney and Brad Walker are among those who could be recalled to the starting XI.

Defender Christian Burgess, on loan from Middlesbrough, could also feature again after missing the FA Cup tie as he did not have permission to play.
