Team News: Pools v East Thurrock United

6 November 2014

We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup First Round tie against East Thurrock United at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).

Paul Murray looks likely to be without Tommy Miller for this weekend’s FA Cup game against East Thurrock United as the midfielder continues to nurse a calf problem.

Matthew Bates is back in training after overcoming his calf injury and could be back in contention to face the non-league outfit at The Vic on Saturday.

Jack Compton is making good progress after his knee operation but remains sidelined for now, as does Stuart Parnaby who also has a knee injury.

Visitors East Thurrock are thankful to have record scorer Sam Higgins available for the weekend after it was initially thought the front man would sit out the game through suspension.

A “clerical error” meant the Ryman Premier League outfit feared he’d picked up his fifth booking of the campaign to trigger a one-game ban but further investigation confirmed it was only his fourth.

Fellow front man Emmanuel Osei will miss the trip to the north-east though as he spends time on the sidelines through injury.
