Hartlepool get the match under way
It's a new year and a fresh start for Bury, who welcome back club captain Craig Jones on to the bench and two new recruits into the starting line-up.
Defenders James Burke and Frederic Veseli arrives from Huddersfield and Ipswich, respectively, replacing Gareth Roberts and Dean Howell in the team.
Roberts drops down to the bench while Howell returns to parent club Fleetwood Town after a pretty successful second spell at Bury.
He helped the side to end 2013 with a win - the first under new manager David Flitcroft.
And the Shakers will hope to continue their recent improvement in results and performances at Victoria Park today.
Bury enjoyed a 1-0 victory against Colin Cooper's side at the JD Stadium in November, but were soundly beaten 2-0 at Victoria Park last season,when both sides were relegated from League One.
Hartlepool have adapted to life in League Two with a little more success than Bury, sitting in 13th in the table with 31 points from 23 games, while Flitcroft's men are 20th, with 24 points from the same number of matches, just two points outside the relegation places.
