No fresh worries for Pools
Hartlepool have no new injury worries ahead of Saturday's League One encounter against Carlisle at Victoria Park.
Pools goalkeeper Andy Rafferty is still sidelined with a knee problem but other than that Pools boss Neale Cooper can pick from a fully-fit squad.
Cooper is likely to keep faith with the players who picked up the club's first victory of the season against Scunthorpe last weekend.
Neil Austin returned to the starting line-up after a calf injury and came through the 90 minutes unscathed, meaning he is set to keep his place.
Cooper has the likes of Luke James, who came off the bench to score against Scunthorpe, veteran Ritchie Humphreys, Simon Walton and Nathan Luscombe ready to play if he decides to make changes.
