Team News: Pools v Newport County

17 August 2015

We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Tuesday evening’s Sky Bet League Two game against Newport County at Victoria Park (7.45pm kick-off).

Harry Worley is a doubt to play against Newport County on Tuesday evening after being forced off with an ankle injury during the early stages of Saturday’s win at York City.

The towering defender was the victim of a thunderous challenge from City forward Reece Thompson and, despite treatment on the field, had to be replaced by Matthew Bates.

Bates performed well in the 2-1 victory at Bootham Crescent and looks the likely replacement if Worley can’t return, though Dan Jones is another option after he was back on the bench at the weekend following a back injury.

Trevor Carson remains sidelined with a hairline fracture in his toe so Adam Bartlett will continue in goal, while Jordan Richards is definitely out with a stress fracture in his lower back.

Newport County boss Terry Butcher has no new injury concerns ahead of their visit to The Vic and will hope to build on Saturday's encouraging performance in the draw with Stevenage.

The Exiles chief is hoping to add to his squad but won't have any new faces in prior to the long journey to the north-east.
