TOWN keeper Ian Gray has been given the all-clear to resume training.
The 29-year-old suffered a badly bruised left hand in the victory at Stockport and missed the goalless home draw with Chesterfield.
He has an "outside chance" of being back to face Hartlepool, however, in front of the Sky TV cameras at the Galpharm Stadium on Monday (7.45). And manager Peter Jackson said today: "It's great news about Ian and now I don't have to worry about looking to bring in some loan back-up.
"The specialist was very positive about things when he examined the hand yesterday and it's just a matter of getting all the bruising out.
"Ian will do some training today and then we'll see how he progresses into some handling work over the weekend.
"Whatever happens, though, I'm very pleased with how Phil Senior has done. You can't ask any more than a clean sheet."
Jackson named five outfield subs on Tuesday because young keeper Jacob Giles is in Ireland with the Academy, who lost their first match 3-1 against the unbeaten University College Dublin Under 21s.
James Hand was the scorer for Town, who play Shelbourne U21s at AUL tonight.
Jackson will have to make at least one change on the bench on Monday because Lee Fowler is on Wales Under 21 duty in Latvia.
