Team News: Pools v Yeovil Town

Nicky Featherstone, Hartlepool United

Craig Hignett will welcome Ryan Donaldson and Nicky Featherstone back in to contention for Saturday’s National League game against Yeovil Town at Victoria Park.

The pair have both now completed their respective two-game suspensions after being sent-off during the game against Dover Athletic a fortnight ago.

Josh Hawkes scored in a behind-closed-doors game against Leicester City’s youngsters at The Vic on Tuesday to press his claims for a recall, while Luke James was on target twice to push his own case.

Fraser Kerr is back doing some light training after a foot injury but will not be considered for Saturday, while Myles Anderson is still battling with a troublesome concussion issue.

Luke Williams has been doing more outdoor work as he looks to build fitness after knee surgery but Luke Molyneux is still a little way from a return to training after his surgery.

Gime Toure took a knock during the draw at Eastleigh last week but is expected to be fine, but Zach Hemming is back at parent club Middlesbrough for treatment on a back injury at present.

Yeovil Town boss Darren Sarll will hope to have striker Rhys Murphy available for selection after he was forced off following a nasty collision with Bromley keeper Mark Cousins last weekend.

Charlie Lee is back to fitness and should play but goalkeeper Stuart Nelson (groin) and front man Courtney Duffus (hamstring) are still sidelined for Saturday’s trip to The Vic.
