Murphy in contention for Yeovil’s rearranged FA Cup clash against Hartlepool

Rhys Murphy could make Yeovil’s rearranged FA Cup tie against Hartlepool after a few more days of rest.

Saturday’s first round proper clash was postponed just 90 minutes before kick-off after heavy rain had made pockets of the Huish Park playing surface unplayable.

Striker Murphy, who has nine goals to his name so far this season, had been struggling with a knock last week, but manager Darren Sarll hopes he will now make the game.

The Glovers currently sit second in the National League, a point behind leaders Bromley with a game in hand and eight clear of the north-east club in 13th.

Hartlepool make the 700-mile round trip to Somerset for the second time in a matter of days.

New boss Dave Challinor was not expected to take charge of the cup tie as the finer details of his AFC Fylde departure were ironed out, but he travelled with the squad and could now take full control.

Pools have two injury problems of note, with midfielder Luke Molyneux definitely missing and striker Gime Toure a major doubt.

Molyneux is working his way back from ankle surgery, while Toure is recovering from an operation on his hand and has only just had the cast removed.
