Hartlepool manager John Hughes is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up at Crawley.
Hughes, who has no new injury or suspension worries, is unlikely to tinker with the side that extended their unbeaten run to three matches last week with a draw against Brentford.
That will mean a place among the substitutes again for experienced pair Antony Sweeney and Evan Horwood, while midfielder Nathan Luscombe is also pushing for a recall.
Striker James Poole is expected to miss out again as he is struggling with a leg injury, and teenage defender Jordan Richards (knee) remains a long-term absentee.
Pools were relegated following Oldham's recent win over Yeovil, but have taken seven points from the last nine available, with successive wins over Bury and Tranmere before taking a point from Brentford last week.
