Team News: Torquay United v Pools

Nicke Kabamba, Maidenhead United v Hartlepool United

Craig Hignett still has several players unavailable him due to injury ahead of Saturday’s National League fixture against Torquay United at Plainmoor (3pm kick-off).

Nicke Kabamba took a fresh knock to his ankle during the draw at Chorley last weekend and the front man missed the win over Wrexham and remains a doubt to return at Torquay.

Myles Anderson received four stitches in a head wound suffered at Chorley and is a doubt to make the trip to Plainmoor, while Niko Muir is receiving treatment for the hamstring injury he sustained in the same game.

Luke Molyneux (leg) and Luke Williams (knee) are both still sidelined, while Kenton Richardson is stepping up his recovery from ankle trouble though Saturday’s game will come too soon.

Torquay boss Gary Johnson must decide whether he needs to make any changes after seeing his side pegged back to a 2-2 draw at Barnet last week after holding a two-goal half-time lead.

Ruairi Keating is pushing for a starting spot after coming off the bench at The Hive, while Opi Edwards will hope to return after he missed the Bank Holiday Monday fixture.
