Joe Parkinson hailed the patience of the players as they
wore down Dagenham & Redbridge to enjoy a 1-0 win at Victoria Park on
The goal came from an unlikely source in full-back Mark
Kitching ten minutes from time and Parkinson admitted that they weren't sure itwas going to come.
However, the team kept on going and a moment of brilliance
from Tyler Hamilton set Kitching through to score his first Victoria Park goalfor the Club.
“It was a massive win and I'm made up for the lads,” Parkinsontold Pools TV.
“They worked tirelessly when Dagenham sat in and made itdifficult for us but we dominated the game for the most part.
“We kept on going and we just wanted something unexpected to
happen and I think we got that with Mark Kitching's goal, which he fullydeserved.
“Games like that can be difficult and you can get frustrated
but that is where you have to stay patient and still move the ball quickly andstick to the things you know will work for you.
“It looked like it could have been one of those days for us
but they defended very well to be fair, they blocked shots, there was somelast-ditching tackling and sometimes you have to give credit to the opposition.
“We've got so many games coming up and we wanted to tickthis one off with three points and that gives us some real momentum now.
“A win at home in front of our fans just before Christmas – perfect.”
