Team News: Pools v Exeter City

28 January 2016

We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Exeter City at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).

Ronnie Moore is awaiting the results of a scan on loan star Ellis Harrison after he was forced off during the weekend’s 1-1 draw at Cambridge United.

The front man joined the Club from Bristol Rovers last week but took a knock to the ankle during the first half of Saturday’s game at The Abbey Stadium and is a doubt to face Exeter.

Billy Paynter is hoping to push his claims for at least a place on the bench after recovering quicker than expected from an Achilles injury though Moore refused to confirm whether the skipper would make the squad this weekend.

Defender Scott Harrison should return to contention after a minor knee strain picked up at Accrington kept him out of the game at Cambridge.

The weekend game may come too soon for Carl Magnay who is still struggling to shake off a groin problem, while a stomach injury is keeping Michael Duckworth on the sidelines and Harry Worley is still nursing an ankle problem.

City boss Paul Tisdale has an injury concern over centre-back Jordan Moore-Taylor who went off with a calf injury during their 2-1 win over Accrington Stanley on Saturday.

Lee Holmes and David Noble both missed the Accrington game through injury but are expected to be fit to make the trip to the north-east, but Ryan Harley is still three weeks away from a return from a hip injury.
