Football - Cooper pondering Harewood recall

Hartlepool boss Colin Cooper must decide whether to recall striker Marlon Harewood for the home game against Bristol Rovers.

PA Sport Report

The former West Ham and Aston Villa forward started on the substitutes' bench in the goalless midweek draw at Accrington, but Harewood, midfielder Antony Sweeney and striker James Poole are all pushing for recalls.

Cooper has no new injury or suspension worries as his side look to get their play-off challenge back on track with a first win in three matches.

Michael Duckworth remains sidelined with a leg injury sustained in last month's defeat at Northampton and fellow defender Neil Austin is still struggling with a toe problem.
