Craig Hignett has no new injury worries to contend with ahead of Tuesday night’s trip to face Barrow at Holker Street (7.45pm kick-off).
The Pools boss will also be thankful to see some of those who have had injuries making progress, with Myles Anderson, Nicke Kabamba and Kenton Richardson all now back in training.
However, Luke Molyneux (ankle), and Niko Muir (hamstring) and Luke Williams (knee) are all still unavailable to Hignett.
Barrow have enjoyed better fortune on the injury front in the opening stages of the campaign than they did twelve months ago and boss Ian Evatt has a fully-fit squad to choose from of late.
However, he will have to make a check on striker Scott Quigley who was forced off during the first half of Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Woking.
