Tayo Adaramola has been named in the Crystal Palace squad for the first time but starts on the bench alongside Jesurun Rak-Sakyi. There are two changes to the XI that beat Millwall in the previous round with games for both Martin Kelly and Luka Milivojević. Hartlepool field recent signings Omar Bogle and Bryn Morris.
Currently 13th in the league, Palace clinched their place in the fourth round after a 2-1 south London derby victory over Millwall, with Michael Olise inspiring a battling second-half comeback.
