We Can Find A Way To Win - Sweeney

1 November 2019

Antony Sweeney has told his players they can be confident of

a fourth victory in a row on Saturday at Notts County – as long as they earn

the right with more hard work.

The caretaker boss has presided over three consecutive wins

and three clean sheets in the process but knows his team potentially face their

stiffest test this weekend against an in-form Magpies outfit.

However, Sweeney is adamant that the preparations will be in

place for Pools to continue their fine run as long as they stick to the same

principles and work ethic they have shown in their last three outings.

“Be confident but be aware this is a fresh challenge,”Sweeney told Pools TV.

“The last three games have no bearing on this result; we

still have to earn it and do the ugly side of football which I feel, over the

last three games, we've started to do a lot better.

“We have some talented footballers and with, the ball at our

feet, I don't worry too much about us but at times when our backs have been against

the wall we've lacked resilience - hopefully that's coming back now.

“We've found a way to win the last three and now we have to

find a way to win this one so we'll give the players a plan of how we see it

panning out but they will have to make the decisions on the pitch.

“We have enough experience in there that no matter which waythe game goes we can find that way so I am going in to it quietly confident.”

A crowd in excess of 5,000 can be expected at Meadow Lane on

Saturday, with Pools having sold just short of 450 advance tickets for the

clash – the first between the sides outside the EFL.

“It's a traditional football ground, there will be a higher

gate than most gates in our league and we'll have a magnificent support which

is brilliant.

“It has the feel of what you want, it has the feel of aproper football match – and I think we should thrive on that.”
