Let's Keep Form Going Says Pools Boss

21 August 2015

Ronnie Moore is hoping his players can make history in more ways than one on Saturday when they make the trip to face Stevenage at The Lamex Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Pools will celebrate their best-ever start of five straight wins if they bring home the points this weekend – but that will also mean tasting victory against Stevenage for the first time.

There have been seven previous meetings between the two sides and Pools are yet to win any of them, while the best start to a campaign was four consecutive victories recorded in 1957/58.

And Moore says confidence is high in the camp and he’s hopeful that will be reflected in another positive performance against Teddy Sheringham’s men this weekend.

“Everybody is looking forward to the game – they can’t come quickly enough at the moment,” he told Pools PlayerHD.

“It’s been a fantastic and unbelievable start so I think we’re better off keeping on playing games at this stage.

“If we can reproduce the form we have so far then we will give ourselves a chance – okay, we’ve had a bit of luck and the keeper has made some saves but that’s what he’s there for.

“Stevenage haven’t had a good start but Teddy Sheringham’s in his first job in management and he wants to play in the right way - that takes time.

“It will be a different challenge against Stevenage than we’ve had in the past – we’ll do a little bit of work on that but, like I said all last season, it will be about what we do.”

Moore is back at the helm after missing the trips to Fleetwood Town and York City last week when he flew out to Spain to be with his young daughter Charlotte who had fallen ill whilst on holiday.

He returned to the dugout for the first time in midweek to oversee Pools’ 1-0 win over Newport County and has admitted it’s great to be back at work.

“It’s absolutely brilliant to be back and the reception I got before kick-off on Tuesday was humbling and I thank everyone for that.

“It’s so nerve-wracking when you can’t influence anything so I am glad to be back now.”
