Hartlepool United predicted XI gallery: Multiple injury concerns for John Askey to consider with ex-Sunderland defender set to miss out
Hartlepool were disappointing despite bringing an end to their three-game losing streak against Ebbsfleet United last weekend.
Pools twice held the lead only to be quickly pegged back as Askey and his side had to settle for a draw.
Now Pools face the first of back-to-back away games against National League strugglers York and Kidderminster as they look to close the gap back to the play-off places.
Much of the talk ahead of the game will relate to Askey’s return to York having guided the Minstermen to promotion last year.
But Askey has plenty to think about himself with regards to his team selection and set-up after his change in formation failed against Ebbsfleet.
Askey is sweating over the fitness of Joe Mattock, Luke Hendrie, Charlie Seaman and Josh Umerah while captain David Ferguson is set to miss through suspension.
