Pool look to continue their good form this weekend with the visit of Bradford City to Bloomfield Road.
Simon Gillett will be replaced after being sent off against Crewe last weekend. Tipped to take his place is Adrian Forbes who has only played once in the Lancashire Cup against Blackburn on Monday since being injured. The other options for Grayson is to bring in former Bantam Claus Jorgensen on the right of midfield or Kiegan Parker.
Ben Burgess once again will be close to making the bench but his place might go to John Muphry who managed to get through the Blackburn match unscathed on Monday.
The left back put in a great performance on Saturday on his debut at Crewe, the loanee from Stoke made a great impression on the away supporters with a solid performance and great passion at the end of the match. Lets hope Diko can impress the home faithful too.
Matthew Clarke brother of former Pool centre back Chris has gone out on loan to Darlington this week. Manager Colin Todd will be able to call upon the service of striker David Graham who turned down a move to the Seaside earlier in the season.
Graham is on loan from Sheffield Wednesday and has hit the back of the net three times in eleven starts.
City have lost the last two matched on the trot, 1-2 to Scunthorpe in the Johnston Paint trophy and then 0-1 to Scunthorpe again on Saturday in the league, they`re going to love it when we turn out on Scunthrope-esq burgundy colours.
Windass is a class act at this level, this year Neil Warnock tried to temp the striker to Sheffield United but Windass was reluctant to leave the club which is his second home. He`s hit the back of the net seven times this season so far but only two of those goals have come away from Valley Parade.
Last season the home sides won 1-0 each, At Valley Parade a last gasp goal from substitute Joe Brown earned a sweet victory for City.
In the reverse fixture a late Simon Wiles goal earned Pool the three points despite being down to ten men for the majority of the match after Rob Edwards was sent off in the first half.
