RONNIE Moore has named the same starting line-up for tonight’s trip to Oxford United in Sky Bet League Two.

The only change to the squad sees new signing Ebby Nelson-Addy come onto the bench in place of Jordan Jones, who has returned to Middlesbrough after his month-long loan spell.

Pools are tonight looking to close the gap to safety and achieve back-to-back wins for the first time in over a year.

Moore has kept faith with the same team that won 1-0 at Morecambe on Saturday.

Michael Appleton’s Us will again be without the suspended Danny Hylton, who serves the second of a two game ban.

Pools are bottom of Sky Bet League Two, six points from safety ahead of kick-off, while Oxford are 17th in League Two.

Oxford: Clarke, Skarz, Mullins, Wright (C), Hoban, MacDonald, Baldock, Ruffels, O’Dowda, Collins, Roofe.

Subs: Rose, Ashdown, Rasulo, Long, Gnanduillet, Roberts, Dunkley.

Pools (3-5-2): Flinders, Austin, Mirfin, Harrison, D Jones, Duckworth, Featherstone, Walker, Tshibola, Franks, Bird.

Subs: Maxted, Holden, Richards, Hawkins, Nelson-Addy, Smith.

Referee: Patrick Miller (Bedfordshire)
