We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s game at Victoria Park.
Craig Harrison will assess the fitness of Blair Adams and Jonathan Franks ahead of Macclesfield Town’s visit to The Vic this weekend.
The pair have both been forced to sit out the last couple of games with hamstring trouble and the Pools boss will check on their progress to see if they can return to contention.
Club Captain Carl Magnay is also making good strides back to fitness after undergoing hernia surgery and is nearing a return to action.
Aaron Cunningham, Ryan Donaldson, James Thorne and Keith Watson all remain sidelined and won’t be available to face The Silkmen.
Macclesfield boss John Askey is in the fortunate position of having no new injury worries ahead of the trip to the north-east.
He must decide whether to make any changes to his starting eleven after seeing his side draw for a third successive game at Maidenhead United last weekend.
