Hartlepool will wait on the fitness of captain Antony Sweeney, who has been out for six weeks with a calf problem but played for the reserves in midweek.

Brad Walker will definitely miss out with an ankle injury he picked up in the defeat by Wycombe this month.

Oxford are without Dave Kitson and Andy Whing through suspension, while captain Jake Wright is out with a groin problem and James Constable has a foot injury.

Sean Rigg has overcome a hamstring niggle and comes into the squad.
