Hartlepool boss Ronnie Moore hopes to extend the loan spells of Kal Naismith, Jake Gray and Adam Jackson until the end of the season.

The trio, on loan from Portsmouth, Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough respectively, are due to return to their parent clubs after tomorrow’s game with Newport.

“It would be good to keep them, then everyone knows where we are,” Moore told the Hartlepool Mail. “They aren’t my players, but they have been part of the squad and they want to be here, which is the main thing.”
