We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Tuesday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Luton Town at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium (7.45pm kick-off).

The Pools boss will assess the fitness of Matthew Bates (bone bruising) and Rob Jones (hip) to see whether either are ready to step in to the side to face Luton.
Michael Woods is continuing to nurse a calf injury so is likely to miss out again, while Carl Magnay is sidelined long-term after rupturing his cruciate ligament in our last home outing against Mansfield.
Luton boss Nathan Jones will be unable to call upon Danny Hylton after he was sent-off in injury time at the end of Saturday’s 3-1 triumph over Doncaster Rovers.
Skipper Scott Cuthbert is also likely to be missing after being stretchered off midway through the first half of their weekend win with a neck injury.
Glen Rea is out of action after injuring his knee in training, while Jack Senior, Craig Mackail-Smith and Danny Green are all still continuing their rehabilitation from injury.
