NICKY Featherstone comes in for the injured Michael Woods in the only change for Hartlepool United away to Dagenham & Redbridge.

Woods is out for the season after suffering a dislocated ankle and fractured fibula in the 1-0 win over Wimbledon at the weekend.

Featherstone replaces him in central midfield, with Ronnie Moore keeping faith with Ryan Bird and Connor Smith up front.

Pools are bottom of Sky Bet League Two, six points from safety, while the hosts are 19th in League Two having lost their last two matches.

David Mirfin plays the last of his month-long loan spell at Pools tonight but Moore is hopeful it will be extended.
