When they take on Stockport County at the Suit Direct Stadium on Saturday, basement rivals Hartlepool United will attempt to regain their winning streak in League Two. Despite this, Hartlepool earned a spot in the FA Cup third round by defeating Harrogate Town 3-1 last weekend, which will give them confidence going into the Stockport match.
If other results go their way on Saturday, Curle and his team could actually move out of the relegation spots with a win against Stockport.
Hartlepool may select a team that is very similar to the one that won the FA Cup last weekend against Harrogate. If Alex Cairns’ emergency loan is extended because of an injury crisis between the sticks, he might start again. In midfield, Nicky Featherstone and Mohammed Sylla might play together after giving an impressively controlled performance against Harrogate.
We anticipate that both teams will go to full speed in a match that has possibilities in the lower half of the division as they try to gain momentum that is desperately needed.
It will be impossible to separate the teams this time, leaving them with one point each in this League Two matchup.
Prediction: Hartlepool United 1-1 Stockport County
