We're Hurting Over Bad Start - Kerr

7 August 2019

Fraser Kerr has admitted that Pools need to be more ruthless

during their good spells in games after they were undone at Halifax Town on

Tuesday despite seeing plenty of the ball.

Craig Hignett's men were arguably the better side in possession

during The Shay Stadium contest but the cutting edge belonged to the hosts who

continued their perfect start to the season to go top of the table.

Defender Kerr says that getting the first goal can obviously

make a massive difference in games and wants Pools to show a more ruthless

streak as they move forward.

“It's a long old season but the sooner you can start winninggames the better.

“We feel we have a talented squad that can really do

something this season so that makes it even more frustrating that we've got off

to this bad start.

“Only we can turn it around so we'll stick together, look to the game on Saturday and try to put in a performance that gets us the result as well.”
