We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Monday’s game.

Craig Harrison will have to wait on the fitness of Scott Harrison ahead of the Bank Holiday Monday meeting with Guiseley at Nethermoor Park.

The centre-back was forced off during the first half of the defeat to AFC Fylde on Saturday after taking a painful kick on the foot but it’s hoped he can recover in time to feature.

Carl Magnay missed Saturday’s outing through illness but the Club Captain will be aiming to shake that off in time to wear the armband against The Lions.

Louis Laing is likely to be out for another couple of weeks at least with a hamstring problem, while Liam Donnelly will miss the next two games due to being away on international duty with Northern Ireland Under-21s.

Luke George (hamstring) and Rhys Oates (groin) are expected to return to full training this week but Monday’s game will come too soon for the duo.

Guiseley boss Adam Lockwood must decide whether to make changes to his side after seeing them beaten 2-1 in their televised clash with FC Halifax Town on Saturday.

Former Pools keeper Jonny Maxted is expected to be on the bench for The Lions.
