We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s game against Woking at Kingfield Stadium (3pm kick-off).
Craig Harrison was given some more positive news about Keith Watson this week after the on-loan centre-back returned to see a specialist about his knee injury on Wednesday.
It had been feared that Watson would definitely require surgery but a specialist has now advised the Club's medical staff to manage the injury for the next fortnight to see how it settles down before deciding on the next step.
Fellow centre-back Michael Ledger is rated 50-50 by Harrison to make Saturday’s game at Woking after he was forced to sit out the weekend defeat to Eastleigh with a back injury.
However, there was good news on Tuesday when Scott Harrison played ninety minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly and could now come in to contention for the weekend.
Conor Newton will be back in the squad after illness, Luke George is closing in on a return to full training but won’t be considered and Jake Cassidy is still nursing a stress fracture in his foot.
There has been a setback for young defender Aaron Cunningham, who has been told he needs another operation on his injured ankle.
Woking boss Anthony Limbrick is hoping to have Fabio Saraiva back available for Saturday’s game; the midfielder has missed the majority of the campaign so far through injury but is pushing for a recall after returning to full training.
However, the game against Pools is likely to come too soon for Richard Orlu and Joey Jones who are both working on their fitness after missing out recently through injury.
