Craig Hignett is hoping that the manner of Saturday's
dramatic win over in-form Yeovil Town can prove to be a springboard for the
The Pools boss was delighted with the character and spirit
shown by his players as they recovered from the setback of conceding an injury-timeleveller against The Glovers to snatch a last-gasp winner at The Vic.
Now Hignett is focused on ensuring that it's a moment which
can galvanise the squad as they make the relatively short trip to face NationalLeague new boys Stockport this evening.
“I hope Saturday can be our catalyst,” he told us.
“There is no good in winning like that but then not backingit up with another good performance.
“I thought we played very well on Saturday and, although the
Chesterfield game was a bit flat, we performed well at Eastleigh and built onit against Yeovil. Now we've got to do it again.
“It's important that we try and get a run going now and ifwe can keep that consistency going then the results will come for us.
“We still have to be more clinical. By and large we've
looked solid defensively, but I don't think we've scored as many as we shouldhave given the volume of chances we've made.
“If you don't score enough goals, you'll put yourself under
pressure because at 1-0 the opposition are always in with a shout of gettingback in to it.
“All it takes is a lucky break or a ricochet, so we want to
be more comfortable because in many games our play has deserved to see us twoor three in front.
“The league is so tight that if you drop two points it can
make a big difference so we need to make sure that we take advantage when we'reon top in games.”
