Hartlepool boss Dave Challinor is crossing his fingers that the injury picked up by Luke James on Tuesday night is not too serious, with the front man set to undergo a scan this week.

“Luke has been carrying a little bit of a groin problem but been managing it,” Challinor told Pools TV.

“We’ve got a concern over how he might be and it would be a big blow if we lost him for a significant period but if that’s the case other players will need to step up.”
