Team News: Harrogate Town v Pools

Gime Toure, Hartlepool United v Dagenham & Redbridge

Dave Challinor has no new injury worries ahead of our Boxing Day meeting with Harrogate Town at The CNG Stadium (3pm kick-off).

The Pools boss will check on the fitness of defender Aaron Cunningham who is hoping to recover from a knee problem in time to come in to contention.

That leaves Luke James (groin), Luke Molyneux (ankle) and Luke Williams (hamstring) as the only other players left in the Pools treatment room.

Town boss Simon Weaver must decide whether any changes are required to his starting eleven after their defeat at Boreham Wood on Saturday.

James Belshaw, Warren Burrell, Josh Falkingham and Jack Muldoon were all left on the bench for Harrogate during Pools’ recent FA Trophy visit to The CNG Stadium but they are all likely starters on Boxing Day.
