James Brown remains the only absentee, although the forward is expected to return to training next week after almost three months on the sidelines with a knee problem.

Pools have played Leeds five times in League One and have taken just one point in a 1-1 draw on Boxing Day 2007 at Victoria Park - a statistic Turner is keen to change.

He told the Hartlepool Mail: "We have always done well against them but unfortunately we have never beaten them.

"There has only been once where they have beaten us emphatically (4-1 in November 2008) and even then we were level at half-time. Every game has been very tight. But we can't carry on playing the way we are without getting results."
