Dave Challinor has no new injury worries ahead of Saturday’s game against Boreham Wood at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).
The Pools boss will take charge of his first home fixture this weekend but will remain without Luke Molyneux who is still a little short of a return after an ankle operation.
Challinor is also being careful with Luke Williams who had some stiffness in his hamstring following the FA Cup win at Yeovil Town and Saturday’s game may come too soon for the attacking midfielder.
Boreham Wood chief Luke Garrard must decide whether any changes to his starting eleven are necessary following their late win over Maidenhead United at the weekend.
Justin Shaibu was restored to the line-up against The Magpies and responded by scoring the winner so the Brentford loanee will be hoping to keep his place for the trip to Victoria Park.
