Hartlepool will host newly promoted Notts County in a lower table clash but it's still early in the season and both teams are just 6-7 points of play-off places and even the 2nd place. The hosts are coming into this match being in a solid form of late having only lost once in their previous 5 games. They've collected 8 points during this period and will look to improve on that after this game. Hartlepool has just avoided relegation last season by a virtue of better goal difference than Wycombe and will certainly try to do better this season in order not to put themselves in the same position. On the other hand big spending Magpies are looking for their first win under the new coach Paul Ince who has also signed 2 players on-loan recently, his son Thomas and his teammate from Liverpool Stephen Darby. Both players should be available for selection tonight. The Magpies goal is promotion and they'll certainly try to improve in every match in order to stay in contention.
Hartlepool has played 7 games so far at home with amazing 27 goals scored in it. It's almost 4 games per game. Only 1 game was under while 5 out of 6 overs where also over3.5 games. Their visitors have also been involved in some high scoring games when playing away and have 5 out of 7 overs themselves. Hartlepool is a different team when playing at home and they are willing to risk more in order to get a win while County will not be just dfending and will try to win themselves. I see quite an open match with a lot of scoring opportunities where both teams will try to win and that's why I'm backing over2.5 with 6 units.
