We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Tuesday night’s trip to The Shay (7.45pm kick-off).
Craig Harrison will have Club Captain Carl Magnay available for the midweek game at FC Halifax Town after the served a one-match suspension at the weekend.
The defender might have a fight on his hands to recover his place in the side though after Luke George returned to fitness and performed solidly at right-back in the win over Woking.
Liam Donnelly will be re-assessed after being forced to sit out the weekend’s action with an ankle problem, while Michael Ledger is having treatment to his injury back at parent club Sunderland.
Ryan Donaldson and Aaron Cunningham remain sidelined after ankle surgery, and Kenton Richardson is still recovering from an operation on his fractured collarbone.
FC Halifax Town’s Caretaker Manager Neil Young was boosted by full-back Scott McManus playing ninety minutes during their 2-1 home defeat to Ebbsfleet United on Saturday.
However, fellow full-back Josh Wilde is ruled out of the game against Pools after undergoing a scan on Friday to determine the extent of his knee injury.
Centre-back Martin Riley has been given the all-clear to return to full training after injury but will need to build his fitness so Tuesday’s clash with Pools could come too soon.
