Team News: Pools v Bromley

Luke Williams, Hartlepool United

Craig Hignett is continuing to battle against a lengthy injury list ahead of Saturday’s National League meeting with Bromley at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).

Nicke Kabamba missed Tuesday’s game against AFC Fylde with an ankle injury and the front man will be assessed once again before the weekend to see if he is fit to be part of the squad.

Myles Anderson and Luke Molyneux are still working their way back to fitness but Saturday may come too soon, while Josh Hawkes and Kenton Richardson are both still sidelined.

Luke Williams hyperextended his knee in training and so missed the midweek game – it’s not the same knee which required surgery last season but the injury does mean he remains a doubt for Saturday.

Gus Mafuta passed a late fitness test on a foot injury to feature against Fylde and will be monitored ahead of Saturday, while Aaron Cunningham picked up a niggle in the game and will be assessed.

Bromley boss Neil Smith will run the rule over Recco Hackett-Fairchild after the striker was forced off against Torquay United last weekend and missed their midweek win at Aldershot Town.

Adam Mekki came in to the side in his place against The Shots, while Adrian Clifton and Jordan Higgs will hope to press their claims for starting spots for the trip to The Vic this weekend.
