Pools go into today’s match looking to extend their 12 game unbeaten run in the National League as they could potentially go top should they win at Meadow Park and leaders Sutton United lose at Solihull Moors.
Ryan Johnson (knee) and Joe Grey (back) are the only confirmed absentees for the game but the quick turnaround could force Challinor into some changes from the 2-1 Good Friday win over Dagenham & Redbridge.
