Team News: Pools v Yeovil Town

2 February 2017

We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Yeovil Town at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Billy Paynter looks likely to remain sidelined for this weekend’s game as he attempts to overcome an Achilles problem that has troubled him for the last fortnight.

Michael Woods turned his ankle in training this week and the midfielder is now rated doubtful to feature against The Glovers on Saturday.

Nathan Thomas wasn’t risked at Newport County last weekend but the winger could come back in to contention for Saturday after recovering from a groin operation.

Dave Jones will also have new arrivals Louis Rooney and Andrew Nelson available for selection after they joined the Club on loan from Plymouth Argyle and Sunderland respectively.

Yeovil Town boss Darren Way could hand debuts to his trio of new loan signings, with Owain Jones, Jean-Louis Akpa Akrpo and Kabongo Tshimanga all available for the trip.

Veteran defender Darren Ward was rested during their midweek win over rivals Plymouth Argyle but could come back in to contention but Otis Khan (ankle) and Alex Lawless (hip) are still sidelined.
