STUART Parnaby returns to the Hartlepool United side for tonight’s Sky Bet League Two match away to Northampton Town.

The right-back replaces Jordan Richards in the team, with the young defender dropping to the bench.

The rest of the team is the same from the one that recorded a goalless draw at home to Tranmere Rovers on Saturday at Victoria Park.

New loan signing, goalkeeper Freddie Woodman, signed on a month-long loan deal from Newcastle United today and is named on the bench.

Manager Colin Cooper has again named Jonathan Franks and Charlie Wyke up front for the match at the Sixfields Stadium.

Pools are 20th in League Two, with seven points, while Chris Wilder’s Northampton are 9th.

Hartlepool-born left-back Evan Horwood misses tonight’s game for Town with an injury.
