Luke Williams is in the side for his first Hartlepool game, while Darren Holden slots in at left-back. Jack Barmby also arrived at Victoria Park on loan in midweek, but he starts on the bench.
Meanwhile, the visitors are unchanged from their 0-0 draw with Bristol Rovers last week.
Hartlepool will leapfrog York with victory today.
