John Hughes has a number of injury worries ahead of the Easter Monday trip to face Stevenage at The Lamex Stadium (3pm kick-off).Antony Sweeney was forced off with a hamstring injury midway through the first half of Friday's game against MK Dons and is doubtful, so too is Evan Horwood who went off with a similar problem at half time.
Ritchie Humphreys is also touch and go having had to pull out of Good Friday's game at the last minute with a recurrence of a calf injury, while James Poole could miss out again with the injury he sustained at Oldham last Tuesday.
Stevenage have been boosted by the return of former manager Graham Westley to the hotseat and he will be in charge for the first time against Pools on Monday.
Alex Smith and Roarie Deacon could come in to the reckoning after missing Saturday's 1-1 draw at Crawley Town, but Miguel Comminges will be suspended after being sent-off in the game.
