We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of the Easter Monday game at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).

Matthew Bates is hoping to welcome Ryan Donaldson back in to contention for the National League meeting with Guiseley at The Vic.

The midfielder hasn’t played since October and needed two operations to repair damage done to his ankle during the 1-0 win over Barrow but has recently returned to full training.

Liam Donnelly picked up a knock which kept him out of Good Friday’s win at Maidstone United and Northern Irish defender will be assessed again ahead of Monday’s game.

Scott Harrison and Luke George are both missing with hamstring trouble, while Kenton Richardson is still continuing his recovery following surgery on his fractured collarbone.

Guiseley interim boss Sean St Ledger will be without first choice goalkeeper Luke Coddington after the Northampton Town loanee was sent off in Good Friday’s home defeat to Leyton Orient.

His suspension will mean that back-up stopper Joe Green will start his first game since January when The Lions visit Victoria Park on Monday.

Ellis Hudson joined Guiseley on loan from Bradford City last week and was an unused substitute against Orient but could press his claims for a start against Pools.

Marcus Williams is also back available for selection to the Nethermoor Park outfit after he returned to the club following a loan spell with York City.
