We take a look at the latest information from both camps ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Notts County at Meadow Lane (3pm kick-off).
Dave Jones has a number of knocks and niggles to contend with ahead of the weekend trip to Notts County and will leave some decisions late for the game against The Magpies.
As a result, the Pools boss is set to recall midfielder Nicky Deverdics from his loan at Dover Athletic to join the squad for Saturday’s game at Meadow Lane.
Full-back Sean Kavanagh has been back at parent club Fulham this week for assessment after he was forced off during the first half of Tuesday’s win over Exeter City with a hamstring injury.
Billy Paynter looks likely to remain sidelined as he continues a course of injections which it is hoped will help settle his Achilles problem and allow him to return to action.
Carl Magnay is edging closer to a return and is stepping up his training but this weekend will come too soon for the full-back following his cruciate ligament rehabilitation.
Trevor Carson remains in the treatment room for the rest of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery and Rob Jones is still out with a knee injury.
Notts County boss Kevin Nolan will be without Michael O’Connor for the weekend as he completes a two-game suspension after picking up ten yellow cards.
Nolan is on the shortlist for the League Two Manager of the Month award for February but may opt to make changes for Saturday’s game after seeing his side slip to a 3-0 defeat at Stevenage on Tuesday.
