Hartlepool midfielder Andy Monkhouse will return to contention for the home game against Portsmouth following suspension.
Monkhouse missed the midweek defeat at Bury due to a one-game ban, but should go straight back into the starting line-up as boss Colin Cooper considers one or two changes.
Cooper, who has no new injury or suspension problems, will have Matty Dolan available again after the Middlesbrough midfielder extended his loan spell at Victoria Park for another month in time to play on Tuesday night.
Midfield trio Antony Sweeney, Jordan Richards and Brad Walker are all in contention to return to the starting line-up.
