We take a look at the team news from both camps ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup tie at The Super 6 Stadium (3pm kick-off).
Pools boss Matthew Bates will remain without Luke Williams for this weekend’s game against Kidsgrove Athletic as the attacking midfielder continues to recover from minor knee surgery.
Williams is making good progress and is hoping to step up his work over the next week but no firm targets have been set regarding his return to action.
Other than that, Bates has a fully-fit squad to choose from and must decide whether to rotate his starting eleven for the Fourth Round Qualifying tie against The Grove.
Kidsgrove boss Ryan Austin made five changes to his line-up for Saturday’s FA Trophy win at Wisbech Town and will now decide what eleven to select for the trip to Pools.
The Staffordshire outfit opted to postpone a scheduled midweek game against Runcorn Linnets in order to fully focus on their FA Cup visit to The Super 6 Stadium.
