We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Tuesday evening’s National League meeting with AFC Fylde at The Super 6 Stadium (7.45pm kick-off).
Matthew Bates will be without centre-back Andrew Davies for Tuesday’s game against AFC Fylde after the skipper was told he must spend up to four weeks on the sidelines with a calf injury.
However, midfield man Conor Newton should return to contention after missing the weekend trip to Dover Athletic through illness.
The Pools boss must decide whether to include Liam Noble after the midfielder was left out of the squad at Crabble Athletic Ground on Saturday.
AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor has welcomed skipper Lewis Montrose back in to training following his lengthy absence with a foot injury but Tuesday evening’s game is expected to come too soon.
Andy Bond could be back in contention after shaking off the groin problem which forced his substitution against Dagenham & Redbridge ten days ago but Danny Kane (ankle) and James Hardy (hernia) are definitely missing.
