Craig Hignett is delighted that Pools get such a quick opportunity to wipe away the disappointment of the weekend when they travel to FC Halifax Town on Tuesday night (7.45pm kick-off).
Sutton United took all three points on the opening day at Victoria Park on Saturday but Pools boss Hignett has insisted that there is no time for his players to feel sorry for themselves.
A relentless schedule during August will see Pools play no fewer than eight times and Hignett says that gives them the perfect chance to put the result against Sutton firmly behind them.
“It’s nice to get a game so close so that we can go and try and put things right,” he admitted.
“That’s the beauty of this time in the season because the games come thick and fast – if you’re winning then you want to play again and if you’ve lost you get a chance to bounce back.
“We had a good chat with the players on Monday morning and had a little look back on some of the footage from Saturday and then did some work on the back of that.
“It’s out of our system now so we won’t be going to Halifax down in the dumps or anything like that – we’ll be rolling our sleeves up and going there ready for a tough game so it can’t come quick enough.”
