Team News: Pools v MK Dons

28 March 2013

John Hughes has a number of injury concerns ahead of Good Friday's League One match with MK Dons at Victoria Park (3pm kick off).

Hughes is waiting on James Poole, who took a knock to his leg in the game at Oldham on Tuesday 19th March and missed the game with Walsall at the weekend. 

Fellow striker Charlie Wyke has been struggling with a heel injury and he may have to be assessed ahead of the game, while there are a number of other players suffering from minor knocks. 

On a more positive note, Jack Baldwin, who picked up a knee injury in the game against Colchester earlier this month, returned to play 45 minutes for the Reserves yesterday. 

Luke James also impressed for the Reserves in their 4-0 win over Rotherham United, bagging a hat-trick and pushing himself into contention for the game with MK Dons. 

The injury situation seems to be just as bad for Hughes' counterpart at MK Dons, as they are still without first-choice keeper David Martin who is missing with a back complaint - Ian McLoughlin will deputise. 

Dons Defender Antony Kay will also miss out at The Vic on Friday as he serves the first of a three-match suspension, while striker Izale McLeod could be struggling after picking up an injury in training this week. 

Karl Robinson could see Luke Chadwick, Dean Bowditch and Daniel Powell return to action after the trio returned to training this week, though Dean Lewington is expected to be out again with a knee injury.
