LUKE James returns for Hartlepool United after a seven-game absence for their home game with Sheffield United.
A back problem has kept the teenager out of the side and he forms a three-man front line with Andy Monkhouse and Ryan Noble.
At the back, Peter Hartley starts after suffering a leg injury last week at Yeovil which, first feared, was a broken leg.
