We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Tuesday evening’s Sky Bet League Two game against Crewe Alexandra at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium (7.45pm kick-off).
Dave Jones will assess the fitness of Sean Kavanagh after the full-back missed the weekend trip to Colchester United with a hamstring problem.
Adam Bartlett was also missing after picking up a groin injury in training and if he isn’t fit in time then Ben Dudzinski will continue to deputise on the bench.
Matthew Bates is still having treatment on his hamstring injury so won’t feature against Crewe, while Carl Magnay is still a few weeks away from a return to action after stepping up his training following a cruciate ligament injury.
Rob Jones remains sidelined with a knee injury and Trevor Carson is out for the season following shoulder surgery.
David Artell will be without the services of front man Chris Dagnall after he was sent-off during Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Stevenage.
Crewe defender Jon Guthrie got through 45 minutes in their game against Stevenage as he battles a groin problem and will be assessed again ahead of the trip to Pools.
Charlie Kirk returned to the substitutes’ bench at the weekend after serving a three-match ban, as did Billy Bingham who has now recovered from injury.
