We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of our Good Friday meeting with FC Halifax Town at The Super 6 Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Craig Hignett will hope to have Liam Noble back available for selection on Friday after the midfielder was forced to sit out the weekend trip to Aldershot Town through illness.

Fellow midfield man Josh Hawkes will also be assessed ahead of the game against The Shaymen as he battles to shrug off a thigh injury that’s kept him sidelined for the past fortnight.

Carl Magnay is approaching fitness after knee surgery and has increased his work in training, while Conor Newton has also returned to training after his own knee problem.

Aaron Cunningham is still struggling with a knee problem and Luke Williams isn’t ready yet after returning from two operations on his knee.

Town boss Jamie Fullarton is without former Pools full-back Michael Duckworth due to a hamstring injury, while midfielder Niall Maher (thigh) is also expected to miss the rest of the season.

Left-back Ryan Sellers has been referred to a consultant regarding his injury but it seems unlikely that he will feature for The Shaymen again this term.

Former Pools front man Devante Rodney is set for his first return to The Super 6 Stadium – he’s scored five goals in 9 games since joining Halifax on loan from Salford City in February.
