We Worked Hard For The Win - Hignett

10 August 2019

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

to come.

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 nerves

in 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 for

the 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've

done 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 pleased

for 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 fairly


“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 good

side and we can still get better.

“All in all, it was a really good performance and a reallypleasing three points.”
