We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday's game against Wrexham at The Super 6 Stadium (3pm kick-off).
Craig Hignett will be without David Edgar and Danny Amos for Saturday’s game against Wrexham, with the pair both away on international duty.
Edgar has linked-up with the Canada squad for their Concacaf qualifier against French Guiana, while Amos is with the Northern Ireland Under-21s at their training camp in Spain.
Aaron Cunningham is back in contention after shaking off a calf problem, while new signing Adam Bale is also free to play after joining the Club from Sunderland last week.
Luke Williams continues to build his fitness and now isn’t too far away from a return, Carl Magnay is working on his rehabilitation after knee surgery and Conor Newton is still sidelined with a knee problem.
Wrexham boss Bryan Hughes made changes to engineer their 1-0 victory over Maidstone United last weekend following two successive losses and must decide whether to alter things again on Saturday.
Former Pools midfielder Nicky Deverdics made his first start since September against The Stones and will hope to be in the starting eleven again on his return to The Super 6 Stadium.
Another man with Pools connections at Wrexham is Brad Walker but the midfielder has picked up a hamstring injury and there are fears he could be out for the rest of the season.
