We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game with Grimsby Town at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium (3pm kick-off).
Adam Bartlett will continue in goal for Pools on Saturday after it was confirmed that Trevor Carson is likely to be sidelined for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
New signing Sean Kavanagh is set to come in to contention for a debut after joining the Club on loan for the rest of the season from Championship outfit Fulham.
Carl Magnay (knee) and Nathan Thomas (groin) are still ruled out, while Rob Jones is also unlikely to feature as he looks to recover from a knee problem.
Grimsby Town boss Marcus Bignot must decide whether to give new signing Adi Yussuf a starting spot after he came off the bench to score on his debut at Carlisle United on Monday.
Ashley Chambers missed the trip to Brunton Park with a knock but could return to face Pools, while Sean McAllister is struggling with a groin problem.
Bignot will hope to have defender Gavin Gunning available for Saturday after agreeing a deal to sign him from Greenock Morton until the end of the season.
