Craig Hignett felt his side showed their true colours during
the 1-0 win at Maidenhead United but insisted there is still plenty of improvement
Niko Muir's goal early in the second half proved decisive at
York Road as Pools got their first win of the new campaign to settle any nervesin the dressing room and on the terraces.
Afterwards, Hignett paid tribute to the way his side went
about it against The Magpies and wants that result to provide a platform forthe rest of the season.
“I'm really pleased,” he told Pools TV.
“I said I wasn't going to panic two games in and we would
get better as a side – we've had to work hard for that result today but we'vedone it.
“We played some good stuff, we controlled the game and
looked the better team. We got the goal through Niko and I am really pleasedfor him because he's had to be patient for his chance.
“They went long, pushed at us and made it difficult but we
defended well and bar one chance from a header I thought we looked fairlycomfortable.
“Once we were in front we managed the game much better than
we have in recent seasons and that shows we're improving, that we're a goodside and we can still get better.
“All in all, it was a really good performance and a reallypleasing three points.”
