We round-up the latest from both camps ahead of Tuesday evening’s National League encounter with Barrow at Victoria Park (7.45pm kick-off).
Craig Harrison will run the rule over Conor Newton after the midfielder injured his ankle during the warm-up at Woking on Saturday and had to be replaced on the bench.
The Pools boss remains without Keith Watson (knee) and Jake Cassidy (foot), while Michael Ledger (back) will hope to be back in contention and Luke George (hamstring) is nearing a return.
Liam Donnelly will be unavailable on Tuesday night and at the weekend after being called-up once again by Northern Ireland Under-21s, while young defender Aaron Cunningham is out after undergoing ankle surgery on Friday.
James Thorne and Tomi Adeloye will hope to make home debuts after the striking duo joined the Club on Thursday and Monday respectively.
Former Pools loan man Joel Dixon is currently in possession of the number one shirt at Barrow after returning from ten months out with a knee injury and is expected to keep his place in goal on Tuesday.
New Bluebirds boss Micky Moore will be able to call upon midfielder Bedsente Gomis after he served a one-game suspension at the weekend following his fifth yellow card of the season.
Jack Barthram returned from a hamstring injury at the weekend but Moore is likely to remain without Moussa Diarra and Adi Yussuf for the trip to the north-east.
