Pools look set to be without Myles Anderson and Niko Muir for Bank Holiday Monday’s game against Wrexham at Victoria Park.
The pair were both forced off through injury during a bruising second half at Chorley on Saturday, Anderson taking a blow to the head and Muir picking up a hamstring injury.
“Niko has done a hammy so we’ll have to see how bad that is,” explained Craig Hignett.
“As for Myles, he is just one of those people who attracts things by putting his head where he shouldn’t!
“I would think he’s a doubt for Monday but we’ll see how he responds and how the swelling is – he seems to be getting cuts or losing teeth every time he plays.
“He’s a whole-hearted lad and every day he puts in 100% in training and he’s the same in matches – he never shirks anything and that probably why he gets the amount of injuries he’s getting.”
