We round-up the latest team news ahead of Wednesday's trip to Holker Street.

Matthew Bates will assess the fitness of Michael Woods ahead of Wednesday’s game after the midfielder was forced off with an injury during the weekend draw at AFC Fylde.

Woods took a kick to the knee in the closing stages of the first half and initially attempted to play on before being withdrawn on the hour mark.

His replacement on Saturday was Jack Munns who is now back in the fold after surgery and he will be hoping to press his claims for a first senior start since the beginning of December.

Scott Harrison will be available for selection at Holker Street after serving a one-game suspension following his red card in the goalless draw with Boreham Wood.

However, Liam Donnelly is away on international duty with Northern Ireland Under-21s so won't be available to Pools on Wednesday night.

Aaron Cunningham, Ryan Donaldson (both knee), Luke George (hamstring) and Kenton Richardson (collarbone) are all definitely missing for the trip to Cumbria.

Barrow boss Ady Pennock must find someone to take the place of Bedsente Gomis after the midfielder was sent-off during their 1-0 weekend win at Maidenhead United.

Former Pools man Luke James is likely to line-up in the opposition after scoring the only goal in Saturday’s encounter at York Road.
