Pool return to League action after the two week international break to face Crystal Palace who have new manager Neil Warnock in charge for the first time.
After the international break Grayson may bring Kaspars Gorkss back into the team after his goal in the week against the Danes. Kaspers missed the last match through suspension, his place went to loanee Matt Jackson. Grayson will assess the fitness of Gorkss after two games and also the birth of of his son.
Ian Evatt is still some way off the first team as is Adrian Forbes. No new yet on Ben Burgess who missed the last few games with an ankle knock after gaining some form and confidence.
The last match Wes tried to create the winner own his own coming of the left wing bar a few blocks and last ditch tackles he could have grabber or created a goal. At times he did seem to do too much and was caught hogging the ball when a cross or pass was the better option. Fully rested Wes Will be looking to spur Pool to a first win in six games.
Peter Taylor was sacked last week by Simon Jordon and the bronzed millionaire was quick to appoint Neil Warnock as the new Palace manager. Warnock has been out of the game since the summer following his departure from Sheffield United. The experienced campaigner will certainly have his new team raring to go at Bloomfield Road.
Warnock will be without striker Dougie Freedman who attended his grandfather`s funeral on Friday. Winger Paul Ifill will also miss the match with a hamstring injury, which will keep him out for a couple of weeks. Captain Carl Fletcher is a doubt with a hammy picked up on international duty with Wales but there is conflicting information in the press about his fitness. Mark Kennedy will miss the match with a calf injury.
After a dismal season last year Scowcroft has done slightly better this season with four goals in the league. He hit a hattrick on the opening day of the season against Southampton. His fourth of the season came in the last match a 1-1 draw with Hull.
The side last met in the League Cup Thrid round at Bloomfeild Road, Palace ran out 3-1 winner due to Phil Barnes being sent off after 15 minutes. Without a keeper on the bench now retired Gareth Evans had to go in goal. Andrew Johnson hit two goals, Freeman with one with the Pool goal coming form Southern.
