We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Tuesday evening’s Sky Bet League Two game against Northampton Town at Sixfields Stadium (7.45pm kick-off).
Pools boss Colin Cooper is hoping to welcome Stuart Parnaby back in to contention for Tuesday night’s trip to face Northampton Town.
The summer signing was forced off with a hamstring problem during the game against Shrewsbury Town and missed Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Tranmere Rovers but is now hoping to return to full training.
Tuesday’s game could come too soon for Michael Duckworth who is also sidelined with a hamstring injury; the full-back is unlikely to feature against The Cobblers but could be fit in time to face Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.
Northampton boss Chris Wilder could consider making changes after being disappointed with his side’s performance during their 3-2 defeat at Newport County on Saturday.
Goalkeeper Matt Duke is ruled out for at least a fortnight with a thigh injury so Scottish Under 21 star Jordan Archer will continue in goal, while Dean Snedker has been recalled from his loan spell at Brackley to act as cover.
Kaid Mohamed is expected to return after missing Saturday’s game with a cut foot, while Lawson D'Ath is pushing for a starting spot after scoring as a substitute at Newport.
