Neale Cooper looks ahead to tonight's game at Meadow LaneNeale Cooper has told his players they must maintain the level of performance they showed against Swindon Town when they visit Notts County tonight (7.45pm kick-off).
The Pools boss was satisfied with the reaction his players provided following the opening day defeat at Crewe, but now insists they must build on that at Meadow Lane.
"I was looking for a big response on Saturday and the boys gave that," Cooper commented.
"They worked hard to rectify what had happened and now we have to build on it with another strong performance tonight.
"We've had Notts County watched twice by our Chief Scout and he gave us a good report on them; they have a big squad and some very good players.
"It will be a difficult game but we have to try and build on the positives of Saturday's game; we need to keep our shape right and stay organised.
"If we do that and we perform as I know we can, then we can go there and give them a right good game and come away with maximum points."
