Embrace The Challenge - Challinor

17 January 2020

Dave Challinor has challenged his side to make it a hat-trick

of wins over Yeovil Town this season when Pools return to Huish Park in the

National League on Saturday.

The Pools boss presided over an impressive 4-1 win in

Somerset during his first game in charge back in November and he's hoping for

more of the same this weekend.

Despite injuries biting in to his squad in recent weeks,

Challinor remains confident that his side can put on a strong performance and

has urged those who come in to the starting eleven to grasp their opportunity.

“It's an important game for us against a team that have

coped really well since their relegation and are up there as one of the top sides,”

Challinor told Pools TV.

“From our perspective, it doesn't hold any fears – they're

obviously a good side but we've beaten them on a couple of occasions so we want

to go there and keep our little unbeaten run going.

“We're a little bit changed from where the team was when we

went there in the FA Cup but hopefully the performance and the result can

emulate what we did previously.

“We are perhaps not at our strongest, if we're being

absolutely honest – but that gives other people opportunities which they have

been striving for so hopefully they take them.

“We want to make the point at Dover look like a really good one by getting all three on Saturday.”
