Hartlepool director of sport Chris Turner has no fresh injury concerns for the home game against Leeds.
James Brown remains the only absentee, although the forward is expected to return to training next week after almost three months on the sidelines with a knee problem.
Pools have played Leeds five times in League One and have taken just one point in a 1-1 draw on Boxing Day 2007 at Victoria Park - a statistic Turner is keen to change.
He told the Hartlepool Mail: "We have always done well against them but unfortunately we have never beaten them.
"There has only been once where they have beaten us emphatically (4-1 in November 2008) and even then we were level at half-time. Every game has been very tight. But we can't carry on playing the way we are without getting results."
