CHARLIE Wyke has recovered from illness and starts in a Hartlepool United side, now unchanged for the seventh game in a row.

Pools are unbeaten in the previous six games which John Hughes has selected the same starting XI.

They are eight points short of the relegation line in League One and are  out to reduce it further against a side that has beat them twice in League and Captial One Cup this season.
