Craig Hignett has no new injury concerns ahead of Wednesday evening’s National League game against Stockport County at Edgeley Park (7.45pm kick-off).
Fraser Kerr made a quicker than expected return from his foot injury during the weekend win over Yeovil Town and the centre-back is in line to face The Hatters too.
Myles Anderson is still sidelined with a troublesome concussion issue, while Luke Molyneux (foot) and Luke Williams (knee) are both still ruled out following surgery.
Pools boss Hignett will begin a two-game touchline ban on Wednesday night so will have to watch the action from the stands at Edgeley Park.
Stockport ended a run of five consecutive defeats when they drew 0-0 at Sutton United on Saturday and boss Jim Gannon must decide whether to make any changes for the visit of Pools.
Ash Palmer proved his fitness with a return during the weekend trip to Plainmoor after missing the previous three games with a hip injury and he should slot in to defence again against Pools.
