As a result Magnay is likely to miss 10 days to two weeks.

Manager Craig Harrison was understandably frustrated.

"It’s a blow," said the Pools boss.

"He’s just got himself back from a hernia operation.

"He’s being well looked after now though and hopefully he will be back out on the pitch soon."
