Our Hard Work Came To Fruition - Sweeney

26 October 2019

Antony Sweeney hailed the hard work on the training ground

which paved the way for victory over Barnet and then challenged his players to

keep building the momentum.

The 2-0 win at Victoria Park was a third in succession under

Sweeney's caretaker stewardship and it was a result which moved Pools within two

points of the National League's top seven.

A first half double from Nicke Kabamba did the double but,

in truth, Pools were comfortable winners on the day and could have added to

their lead during a dominant performance.

“I have just told the lads that I am really proud of them,”Sweeney told Pools TV.

“We built up this week in terms of what we wanted to do but

also for what we thought Barnet would do and for large periods of that game the

players executed that game-plan to perfection.

“We scored goals at good times too, which gave us a platform

and confidence, and then the sending-off affected the second half but even

after that the game management was really good.

“They were two good finishes from Nicke – he's a threat when

he gets in those areas. We've been banging on at him to get in the box more so

hopefully he will enjoy the success he's had today and then go again next week

and the week after that.

“The hard bit is done now – getting the ball rolling. That

momentum is going now and now it's the time to keep it going and you push it

and push it and push it.

“We're striving for perfection but I will enjoy that win tonight

because I feel like the work, the planning and the thought process through the

week has come to fruition in the game and that gives us a real sense of


“I'm so pleased for the lads – it's a team game and I am struggling to pick out anyone who didn't contribute today.”
