Halifax Game Can't Come Quickly Enough - Hignett

6 August 2019

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 sothat 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.”
