Craig Hignett admitted his side were not at their best
during the 0-0 draw at Chorley on Saturday but took heart from a clean sheet at
It was the second shutout of the season and the second in
succession away from home but Hignett still felt a little frustrated that Poolswere unable to break the deadlock in Lancashire.
“I think it was important we didn't concede goals and we cameaway with something,” Hignett told Pools TV.
“I didn't think we were at our best today, I thought were a littlebit nervy and didn't look at our brightest with the ball.
“We defended well and put our heads in when we needed to but
both teams looked a bit nervous – obviously they'd conceded a lot in the last twogames and we didn't want to concede and it showed.
“It opened up a little towards the end and we looked the
more likely to go and win it but I will take a draw and the clean sheet becauseI know we're a better side with the ball than we showed.
“We could have won it at the end with Gav's chance but sometimes they go in and sometimes they don't but, just at the moment, it seems those little things that can change games aren't going for us.”
