Team News: Pools v Ebbsfleet United

9 August 2018

We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday’s game against Ebbsfleet United at The Super 6 Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Matthew Bates will hope to have a fully-fit squad to choose from once again this weekend as Ebbsfleet United form the opposition for the third game of the new campaign.

Ryan Donaldson picked up a rib injury on Tuesday evening but is expected to be in contention and Paddy McLaughlin also proved his fitness with a midweek substitute appearance.

Youngsters Ryan Catterick and Aaron Cunningham are the only players not available to Bates this weekend after they made loan moves to Guisborough Town and Blyth Spartans respectively.

Ebbsfleet look likely to be without Dean Rance who has been forced to sit out the first two games of the new National League season through injury.

Kenny Clark is closer to a return as he battles back to fitness but their midweek game came too soon for him and he will have to be further assessed ahead of The Fleet’s trip to the North East.

Luke Coulson, Bagason Graham and new signing Michael Cheek will all be vying for starting spots in Daryl McMahon’s starting eleven on Saturday.
