PAUL Murray has made wholesale changes to his Hartlepool United against league leaders Wycombe with loan signings Matteo Lanzoni, Matty Dolan and Adam Campbell handed starts.

The other change sees Matthew Bates return to the starting line-up with Murray making four changes in total to the side that were beaten 3-1 by York City.

Player coach Sam Collins misses out against Wycombe Wanderers at Victoria Park with a knee injury, while Michael Duckworth is out with a groin injury.

Italian defender Lanzoni arrived on a month-long loan deal from Cambridge United this week, while Bradford City midfielder Dolan is back for a second loan spell at Pools.

Jonathan Franks is dropped to the bench against Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe as Murray opts for a 4-3-3 formation.

Scott Fenwick, Marlon Harewood and Adam Campbell will lead the line for a Pools side desperate for a win.

Murray’s men are bottom of Sky Bet League Two, with just 12 points from their opening 18 matches.
