We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday’s game Prenton Park (12.30pm kick-off).

Matthew Bates will welcome Devante Rodney back in to the equation for Saturday’s trip to Tranmere Rovers after the front man missed the draw with Torquay United through suspension.

Carl Magnay was missing with a hip problem in last weekend’s game but could be in line for a return, while Conor Newton will have his hamstring injury assessed after being substituted last week.

Michael Woods will have his knee and ankle problems looked at ahead of the game and Liam Donnelly is making good progress in his bid to return from a calf issue and could be in contention for the trip to the Wirral.

Luke George (hamstring) and Kenton Richardson (collarbone) are both still sidelined and will play no part in the last day encounter.

With a second-place finish already assured, Tranmere boss Micky Mellon rang the changes to his starting line-up for the midweek defeat to Solihull Moors.

Mellon completely changed his team for Tuesday’s encounter, handing several fringe players and number of Youth Team stars the opportunity to impress.

However, the Rovers chief must now decide what starting eleven is best for their final regular home game of the season ahead of their attack on the play-offs and attempts to return to the EFL.

Defender Adam Buxton remains an injury doubt ahead of the weekend meeting with Pools after coming off just twenty minutes in to last Saturday’s win over FC Halifax Town with a stomach injury.
