We take a look at the latest team news from both camps ahead of Saturday’s FA Trophy tie against AFC Telford United at The Super 6 Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Richard Money will be without Liam Noble for the Second Round tie against The Bucks after the Pools midfielder was ruled out for four to six weeks with a calf injury.

Jake Cassidy will also be unavailable to the Pools boss this weekend – the front man is cup-tied having played in the FA Trophy during his loan spell with Maidstone United.

New loan signing Danny Amos could come in to contention for a debut on Saturday, while Conor Newton is back in training after a hamstring problem and could be involved.

Luke Williams is still continuing his rehabilitation following two operations to repair an injury in his knee and remains sidelined.

Visiting boss Gavin Cowan clinched the permanent signing of Marcus Dinanga from Burton Albion last week following the end of his loan spell with Pools and he made his debut in their win over Spennymoor Town on Saturday.

However, the young striker won’t be able to play against Pools this weekend due to being cup-tied after featuring in Richard Money’s first game in charge at Leamington last month.

Omari Morgan-Smith will hope to earn a recall to the starting eleven in attack, while on-loan keeper Josef Bursik was preferred in goal last weekend and will aim to keep his place for the FA Trophy tie.

Tickets for Saturday’s game are just £10 for adults and £5 for concessions – click here for more information.
