Hignett Eyes Start Of Winning Run

4 October 2019

Craig Hignett has encouraged Pools to take a leaf out of the

book of this weekend's visitors Yeovil Town as they look to make a return to

their best form.

The Pools boss has pointed to The Glovers as a good example

of how quickly things can change once you start winning games, with Darren

Sarll's men arriving in the North East on the back of seven victories in a row.

However, the Somerset outfit suffered an inconsistent first

month before something clicked at the end of August and their recent run has

lifted them up to third in the National League table.

Now Hignett is demanding that his side follow suit following

an indifferent September and he wants the players to go out and express themselves

at Victoria Park on Saturday.

“That's what happens when you get in to a run,” Hignett toldPools TV.

“They've gone seven on the trot now and when things are

going for you, they really go for you so it's just about building that


“If you win two or three on the bounce it will propel you

right up the league because it's still so tight and that's what we've got to

look to do.

“I think it's been an issue this season that we're not

scoring enough goals for the amount of chances we're creating – we haven't been

ruthless enough and that's plain to see.

“If we can turn some of these draws in to wins it makes a massive difference. I can stand here and say we've only lost two in nine but it makes no difference if you don't win enough and we need to win more games.

“Looking at Yeovil, they're probably the best team I have seen

up to now – but I don't think there's a lot between us because on our day we

can give anyone a game.

“We have to make sure that it's our day on Saturday.”
