Craig Hignett has insisted that the positive feeling of
getting off the mark at Maidenhead United on Saturday can drive his side on
Pools play host to much-fancied AFC Fylde at Victoria Park on
Tuesday night before welcoming Bromley to the North East on Saturday in adouble header on home soil.
And Hignett reckons that the feel-good factor created by
their 1-0 triumph at York Road over the weekend can galvanise the players aheadof those games.
“I think we're in a really good frame of mind after Saturday,”he told us.
“It was obviously important that we got off the mark and Ithought it was a really good performance at the weekend.
“I think out of the six halves we've had so far we've
probably only had one bad one, which cost us against Sutton, but generally we'veplayed some good stuff without having the rub of the green at times.
“It's a big week for us now because Fylde are a team you'd
expect to be there or thereabouts again – they did well last year and they're agood footballing side.
“Bromley have strengthened well too over the summer so we
have got two tough home games to test ourselves in but I am confident we canmeet those challenges head-on.
“We're not going in to any game with anything other than a
positive mind-set and a determination to get a result - and I think we've gotthe players who can compete with anyone in this division.”
