Hartlepool will be without Andy Monkhouse for up to three weeks after he limped away from the 4-0 win at the Vic on Saturday.
Coops was forced to take off the 33 year old after only 15 minutes of the 4-0 win with Jack Compton coming on in his place. Coops has told sportmail that with us being 'lucky' with most injuries this season he's hoping that we'll be lucky with Monkhouse too.
If not though it gives Compton a chance to get back into the side and seize his opportunity.
'Andy felt his hamstring go. We will have a look at him but Andy, at 33, knows his own body.
'If it is a genuine hamstring it will be nothing less than three weeks but that is part of football and, touch wood, we have been very lucky with our injury record over the season.
'You get into this period of time and need as many people available as you can, but where has Jack Compton been for the past few months?
'There is an opportunity now for Jack to impose himself, to give himself a chance to play in the remaining games and have an impact on the final throes of the season.'
Hamstring injuries are something that you need to be careful with, as Monkhouse isn't the youngest of players any longer it's all the more important that we don't rush him back as it'll go again and make him more and more prone to this happening.
We'll miss Monkhouse but Compton is a good replacement who will hopefully be keen to prove his worth in the coming weeks to prove to Coops that he's worth a place in his starting line up even when Monkhouse is back.
