We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Tuesday night’s National League meeting at Victoria Park (7.45pm kick-off).

Matthew Bates is once again set to be without Liam Donnelly for the midweek clash with Leyton Orient as the defender continues to recover from a calf injury.

Scott Harrison made a return to action from the substitutes’ bench during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Sutton United and will look to press his claims for a recall to the starting eleven.

Luke George is still nursing a hamstring problem and won’t feature, while Kenton Richardson remains sidelined following an operation to repair his fractured collarbone.

Orient boss Justin Edinburgh looks likely to be without Josh Coulson for the rest of the season after the defender suffered a broken toe during last weekend’s 4-1 win over Barrow.

As a result, Marvin Ekpiteta came in to make his full debut alongside George Elokobi during Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Macclesfield Town and is set to keep his place for the visit to The Vic.

Josh Koroma earned a return to The O’s starting line-up at the weekend and underlined his good form with another goal so he is another likely starter against Pools on Tuesday.
