We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Exeter City at St James’ Park (3pm kick-off).
Ronnie Moore has a number of selection problems to overcome in time for this weekend’s trip to St James’ Park to face Exeter City.
The Pools boss is without Carl Magnay who begins a three-game suspension following his sending-off at Wycombe Wanderers last Saturday.
It leaves Moore short on options in the right-back position with Michael Duckworth (hamstring) and Jordan Richards (back) both sidelined and it could force him to make a move in to the loan market prior to Saturday.
Rakish Bingham and Billy Paynter (both hamstring) are also giving Moore cause for concern with both strikers currently a doubt to make the long trip to face The Grecians, while Harry Worley is nursing a toe injury.
Exeter boss Paul Tisdale could have Jordan Moore-Taylor back in contention for a place in the squad after he missed the first month of the season with a broken metatarsal.
However, Jordan Tillson has been a more than capable replacement in the heart of defence and Tisdale may find it hard to take him out a team that defeated Leyton Orient 4-0 last weekend.
