Hignett Confident Ahead Of Spitfires Test

27 September 2019

Craig Hignett is expecting another entertaining encounter at

Eastleigh this weekend but is hoping Pools can be on the right side of the

result this time around.

Pools were beaten 3-2 in an absorbing affair when they made

the trip to Silverlake Stadium back in March when they were punished for some

lapses in concentration in defence.

However, Hignett feels that his side are better equipped to

deal with The Spitfires' threat this term and is confident that Pools can get

some reward for their long trip to Hampshire.

“They're all a trek for us – but Eastleigh is almost as faras we'll go,” he told Pools TV.

“We'll prepare well for it. We'll travel down on Friday andstay overnight before going there positive about getting a result on Saturday.

“It will be a difficult game. They're similar to us in the

way they have started the season but they're a good side with quality and they

will try to knock the ball about and play football.

“It was a good game of football when we went there last

season. We played really well in it but I think it was three set-pieces we got

done by and it ended 3-2.

“Hopefully it will be another good game this weekend but this time we'll come out the right side of it."
