Huddersfield sit 15th in the FL1 table and Hartlepool one place above the terriers in 14th. Both teams are on 46 points, although Hartlepool have played one more game than Town.
But despite this the teams head into the game with their respective managers insisting they can still make it to the play offs.
Danny Wilson (Hartlepool manager) -It's never too late. There's 30-odd points to play for.
'You have got to have that belief that you can go and win every game you play in and that's the belief we have. Whether we will do or not is another matter.
James Brown (knee) and defender Ben Clark (thigh) remain out
Defender Sam Collins well known to terriers fans career is in resurgence at Pool, after signing in January from Hull.
Mirfin has a back injury, Cadamarteri is still injured. Worthington and Beckett are awaiting potential recalls to the first eleven from the subs bench.
Beckett continuing to notch goals when played as he did on Saturday from the bench would suggest he may be preferred to Booth up front
Rob Page, its still all eyes on the clean sheet maestro
Hartlepool won 4-0 on Saturday against Gillingham, this hot on the heels of a 1-0 away victory at Oldham.
Town having won 1-0 at Orient were in terrible shape losing the three games before that one on the bounce.
The terriers beat pool in November 2-0 at the galpharm, that game also being a midweek encounter.
Pool are 11/10, Draw 11/5, Town 2/1 at the bookmakers. Neither side can afford to lose, as this would despite all the managerial protestations certainly end any lingering pretentions from managers on making the play offs. A draw would probably have the same effect. Its a tough one to call, and with the terriers never seeming to perform this season when they really need to after a good victory, I predict a closely fought out draw.
