PREVIEW: Exeter City v Hartlepool United
St. James Park, Exeter
Hartlepool United make the long trip to St. James Park this Saturday. Exeter City will see this as a good opportunity to get a second home victory on the board. The Grecians have only lost one of five home league games this season but have drawn three, and only won once against struggling Tranmere Rovers.
However, Hartlepool will be testing opposition and their away from thus far is good, with two victories and two draws, the only defeat at Colchester. They also had a spirited comeback at Stockport on Tuesday night as they drew 2-2 after being 2-0 down.
Exeter City Team News:
Goalkeeper Paul Jones could be inline for a return to action after a month out, although the able Oscar Jansson may continue to deputise for the next few games, especially after his commanding performance against Swindon this week.
Manager Paul Tisdale may also change his strikeforce with plenty of options to choose from. Richard Logan may be in contention for a starting place.
Player to watch: Craig Noone
Once again, Noone is the player to watch, and can make things happen!
Hartlepool United Team News:
Chris Turner may well choose to name an unchanged starting eleven for this Saturday`s match

The experienced frontman can always grab a goal
Hartlepool are capable of getting goals away from home and I am concerned with Tisdale`s tactic of playing a lone striker. Another home draw: Exeter City 1 Hartlepool United 1
