Hartlepool travel to Leyton Orient on Saturday in fine form and chasing a play-off berth having won their last four games.
Pools boss Danny Wilson looks set to name an unchanged starting line-up for the sixth successive game when they travel south.
Kevin Kyle will play his last game before his initial month-long loan spell ends, although the club are hoping Coventry will agree to extend the striker's stay.
Andy Monkhouse is expected to keep his place on the left of midfield despite Matty Robson continually impressing as a substitute of late.
Willie Boland remains Hartlepool's only absentee as he continues to struggle with a knee ligament strain.
Leyton Orient chief Martin Ling looks set to hand Sean Thornton a starting berth.
The former Doncaster and Sunderland midfielder arrived back from a loan spell at Shrewsbury to make an impressive substitute appearance in the 2-1 defeat to MK Dons on Tuesday and is primed to start his second game this season for the Os.
Ling is also boosted by the return of defender Alton Thelwell after he missed the midweek defeat with an ongoing knee injury.
Fellow long-term absentees Wayne Gray and Loick Pires are still sidelined, with both still recovering from knee injuries.
Orient are currently struggling in League One and lie third from bottom having not won a league game in eight attempts.
