We Need To Build Momentum - Hignett

30 August 2019

Craig Hignett has called on his players to build on the many

positives from Monday's fine win over Wrexham when they travel Torquay United this


Pools will embark on their longest trip of the season to face

The Gulls at Plainmoor but Hignett reckons the three points gained last time

out will make for a happy journey.

“I think Monday has done the lads a world of good – there'sa bounce in everyone's step,” he told Pools TV.

“It's about building momentum now, picking up as many pointsas we can, getting a few of the injured lads back and really kicking on.

“We've done okay so far even though I don't think we've got

the points we should have had or probably deserved but that's gone and it's

about looking forward.

“We were really good on Monday and now we need to build onit.”

Torquay have enjoyed a solid start to the new campaign having

won promotion as National League South champions last term to return to the fifth

tier at the first attempt.

Their early form isn't something that has surprised Hignett

and he knows that Pools will need to be at their best if they want to continue

an unbeaten record against Torquay which stretches back eleven games.

“They've had a good start,” Hignett told us.

“I thought they would because Gary Johnson is an experienced

and well-respected manager at this level – he knows the league and he knows how

to get out of it too.

“They play some good stuff; they are a footballing side who will try and play. I think we're the same so I would expect it to be a good open game.”
