HARTLEPOOL United manager Graeme Lee will miss today’s trip to Rochdale after testing positive for Covid-19.

Lee, who was set to take charge of his 30th game as Pools boss, will relieve his duties to assistant manager and former Blyth Spartans boss Michael Nelson.

Pools head to Dale looking to end a run of five games without a win in League Two but have already ensured their EFL status for next season.

Timi Odusina, Ben Killip, Nicky Featherstone and Joe Grey are all being assessed before today’s game with all four managing respective injuries.
