The Hartlepool Mail report that Hartlepool United boss Matthew Bates is hopeful that skipper Andrew Davies will be back in action in less than a month.
The captain is currently sidelined with a torn ankle ligament, suffered in the 1-0 home loss to Ebbsfleet United on August 11.
“We are hoping maximum another three and a half weeks,” said Bates when quizzed about former Middlesbrough, Ross County and Bradford City man Davies. “The swelling has come down, he looks good when he is walking but we still have to treat as a grade two tear – that’s four to six weeks from when he injured it.
“If we can get him back any sooner we, of course, will but it also can’t be rushed. It will be ready when it is ready.”
