Danny Amos and David Edgar will both report back to training with Pools on Thursday morning after missing Saturday’s game against Wrexham through international commitments.

Amos linked-up with Northern Ireland’s Under-21s during their week-long training camp in Marbella and made his debut in their 1-0 friendly win over their Bulgarian counterparts on Friday.

The 19-year-old was also involved on the bench as Ian Barraclough’s men snatched another late victory on Monday night when an 87th-minute goal secured a 2-1 friendly win over Mexico Under-22s.Northern Ireland Under-21s

Meanwhile, Edgar was an unused substitute for Canada as they ran out 4-1 winners in their crucial game against French Guiana at BC Place in Vancouver on Sunday.

The victory ensured that the Canadians finished second in their Concacaf Nations League Qualifying group and clinched a place in the 2019 Gold Cup and Group A of the 2019/20 Concacaf Nations League.

Had the centre-back come off the bench in the game he would have become only the second player to win an international cap whilst on the books at Pools after Ambrose Fogarty played for the Republic of Ireland in 1964.

The pair will now be back in training with the Pools squad in Peterlee on Thursday and hope to be in contention for Saturday's National League game at Eastleigh.David Edgar in training with Canada
