ANDREW VORCE - Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Frank Simek looks to be the only American destined to start on Tuesday as the lower leagues in England return to action with Carlisle United visiting Hartlepool.

Hartlepool - Carlisle United

The home squad could be without Ritchie Humphreys and Fabian Yantorno who both picked up injuries over the weekend.

Humphreys is struggling with a hamstring injury while Yantorno has a hip injury.

Joe Gamble and James Brown could be inclusions, as well as Adam Boyd who missed their last outing due to an ankle injury.

Hartlepool are without two senior goalkeepers as Scott Flinders and Andy Rafferty are both out recovering from injuries, which means Jake Kean will continue in between the sticks against Carlisle.

Carlisle boss Greg Abbott may look to shake things up a bit as his squad fell 2-0 away to Bournemouth.

Second half star Matty Robson will look to get his first start of the season after making seven appearances off of the bench. An inspired performance last weekend could see him start against his former club.

Marc Bridge-Wilkinson could remain out due to an ankle injury, while Captain Paul Thirlwell is recovering from a knee injury.

Danny Livesey is also sidelined through a groin injury, while Ben Marshall looks to push his way in to Abbott's team sheet after making four appearances from the substitutes bench.

Notes

Mike Grella will look to make the final roster as Leeds host Preston.

Conor Doyle will hope to make the bench as Derby take on Middlesbrough.

Zak Whitbread will aim to make the bench as Norwich host Leicster.

Anton Peterlin and Plymouth take on Swindon Town away from home.

Seb Harris' Northampton take on Chesterfield at home.

Jon-Paul Pittman is out for four months after a knee surgery as Wycombe take on Barnet.

Jemal Johnson will look to be a second half substitute as Port Vale welcome Shrewsbury.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
