We Didn't Show Our Best - Hignett

24 August 2019

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

Victory Park.

It was the second shutout of the season and the second in

succession away from home but Hignett still felt a little frustrated that Pools

were 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 two

games 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 because

I 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.”
