Craig Hignett has challenged his side to underline their
strong form by winning again when they make the trip to Barrow on Tuesday
The Pools boss has overseen back-to-back wins in the National
League as both Wrexham and Torquay United were beaten to lift the team in thetop ten of the table.
However, Hignett is adamant they can't take their foot off
the gas and he is demanding another solid performance when the players travelto Holker Street.
“It would be a great return for us if we could get anotherwin,” admitted Hignett.
“I said before the weekend that the Wrexham game would meannothing if we didn't go and back it up at Torquay and we've managed to do that.
“Now we want to try and really build some momentum. Let's goand do it again and see how long we can keep the winning run going.
“With the games coming thick and fast we've maybe got one ortwo decisions to make on the team but we're on a good run so it's tough.
“There are people really knocking on the door to get in to
the line-up but we're doing well at the moment so the selection problems are niceones to have.”
Pools let themselves down during their last trip to Barrow
at the end of last season when they were backed by an army of Poolie Knightsbut slipped to a 1-0 defeat.
Hignett has admitted that it would be nice to atone for that
with a much brighter performance and a better result when they return to HolkerStreet on Tuesday – but he knows it won't be easy.
“They're having a tough time at the moment but they're agood side,” he told us.
“I have watched their games and they haven't got the results
they've deserved in some of them because of the run of the ball or because ofdecisions not going for them.
“We know it will be hard, especially away from home, but it's
about what we do – I know how they will be play but I am more interested in ourgame and focusing on getting what we do right.
“It would be nice to win and consign last year's game to
history because it was a real off day for us, there's no doubt about that, butwe will have to be at our best.”
