Pools suffer Collins blow

Hartlepool skipper Sam Collins could be sidelined for the rest of the season due to a calf injury.

Collins, 34, limped out of the warm-up ahead of Saturday's goalless draw at Walsall and it has since been established the central defender has suffered a serious tear.

Manager Neale Cooper said: "We'll have to see how long he'll be out for, but it's a blow because he's been fantastic recently."Collins, who made his 500th career appearance during the recent defeat at Huddersfield, was replaced in the starting line-up at Walsall by Jack Baldwin and the youngster could be set for an extended spell in the side. -
