Competition Is Driving Standards - Hignett

13 September 2019

Craig Hignett has delivered his report on the opening ten games

of the season and he is confident that the encouraging signs can be built upon

in the coming months.

Pools lie ninth in the National League table as it stands

ahead of Saturday's trip to in-form Dagenham & Redbridge and Hignett says

he's reasonably happy with the way things have gone.

After defeat in the opening two games, the Pools boss refused

to panic - and that calm approach helped the players settle and go about

creating a five-match unbeaten run in recent weeks.

“It's been okay so far,” he told Pools TV.

“After a tough start we've got in to our stride and we'vegot better, we look a better team now.

“I still think there is room for improvement and I believewe'll get even better as the season goes on.

“We're pleased but we won't get carried away. We're sitting

in and around where I hoped we'd be but I still think there is more to come

from us.

“We've got a really good squad now, as good as I have known,and it's driving standards.

“That's not just in games but the way people are training and they way they think – they don't want to be out of the team because they know that if they are, they could be out for a while.”
