Nathan Thomas is set for a run-out in the Reserves on Tuesday afternoon as Pools host Mansfield Town in the Central League at Billingham Town (2pm kick-off).
The winger is building match fitness after returning from three months out with a groin injury and has twice come off the bench for the First Team in recent weeks.
Now Thomas will look to get more minutes under his belt against his former club’s second string on Tuesday afternoon as he seeks to recover his sharpness.
Both clubs are set to name predominantly young sides for the fixture with Thomas the most senior player in a line-up that could include some trialists.
Sam Collins will take charge of the team for Tuesday afternoon’s game, with Ian McGuckin away completing his Advanced Youth Award at St George’s Park.
Pools Season Ticket holders can get in to the game for free, while regular admission prices are £5 for adults and £3 for concessions.
We’ll have a full report and reaction here on the Official Website after the final whistle.
