Hignett Praises "Sensational" Pools Fans

10 August 2019

Craig Hignett has paid tribute to the support given to his

players by the travelling fans during Saturday's 1-0 win over Maidenhead


A boisterous contingent of Poolies were among a total crowd

of 1,330 at York Road and their backing from the terraces was rewarded on the

pitch as Niko Muir's second half goal clinched victory.

Afterwards, Hignett admitted he was taken aback by the noise

created by the away fans and was delighted the team were able to send them home


“They were unbelievable,” he told Pools TV.

“They didn't shut up from minute one to minute 95 – theywere just so good.

“When you sit on the bench and all you can hear is that itmust give the players a lift because it certainly gave me a lift.

“We've come here hoping for a result after two defeats and

you wonder how it will go – but the fans were absolutely sensational and I am

so pleased for them.”
