Hartlepool winger Jack Compton will miss the home game with AFC Wimbledon through suspension.

Compton was shown a straight red card for his studs-up challenge on Plymouth's Jamie Reckford in Saturday's win and starts a three-game ban so Jonathan Franks could return to the starting line-up.

Manager Colin Cooper has no other new injury or suspension worries as his side chase their fifth straight win in all competitions.

Striker Steve Howard is hoping to return to the squad following his recent three-match ban and midfielder Antony Sweeney is among those pushing for a recall.
