We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s National League meeting with Harrogate Town at The CNG Stadium (12.35pm kick-off).
Pools boss Richard Money will remain without midfield man Liam Noble who is set to spend at least another month on the sidelines with a calf problem.
Conor Newton has returned to full training this week and could push himself in to contention, while Luke Williams has begun some light outdoor work as he looks to return to fitness after knee surgery.
Harvey Rodgers won’t be involved the weekend – the young centre-back has gone back to Accrington Stanley at the end of his loan spell with Pools.
Michael Woods is set to play against Pools for the first time since making a switch to Harrogate Town in November after making 160 appearances in a blue and white shirt.
Town boss Simon Weaves can’t call upon Jordan Thewlis who was injured during a loan spell at Boston United last month, while Liam Agnew remains out on loan at York City.
