Team News: Pools v Carlisle United

12 April 2017

We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of the Good Friday game against Carlisle United at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Dave Jones has no new injury worries ahead of Carlisle United’s visit to the North-East but must decide whether to make changes following Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Morecambe.

Carl Magnay has been back on the bench in recent weeks after recovering from a serious knee injury but the Pools boss is reluctant to push him back in to the starting eleven too soon.

Billy Paynter (Achilles) and Trevor Carson (shoulder) are out for the season, while Rob Jones is continuing to have treatment for a knee injury.

Carlisle boss Keith Curle saw front man Jabo Ibehre make his comeback from injury as a scoring substitute against Notts County on Saturday and the front man could be in line for a start.

The Cumbrians will also hope that influential midfielder Jason Kennedy can come back in to contention for a starting spot after he played half an hour from the bench at the weekend.

Nicky Adams has been struggling recently with a hamstring injury and looks likely to miss out while Shaun Miller is unavailable as he serves the third game of a four-match suspension.
