McPhillips was asked if Davies will be offered a fresh deal, but the Pool boss says the situation is still very much in the air.

He said: “His deal runs out but he is available to play on Saturday and he will be involved, that’s for sure. Then we’ll take it from there.

“We’ll just see what happens on Saturday and what happens between now and then in terms of getting somebody else in, which we are working on.

“Football changes quickly and if he comes on and scores an equaliser or a winner on Saturday, you never know do you?”
