We spoke to Hartlepool United defender Euan Murray after the sides 2-2 draw at Bradford on Saturday.
I think it shows how far we’ve come that we are disappointed that we haven’t won the game. You always want to keep a clean sheet and it’s not something we’ve done enough this season. However, sometimes you’ve just got to applaud the finish and the big man Cook has scored a screamer.
You’ve got to take the positives, we had a game plan, we were a threat and we will take that momentum.
Personally, I feel good. I’ve had time out the team and there are either two ways you can go about it. I could either throw my toys out of the pram or work hard. I know I had a lot to improve on but there’s a long way to go to prove myself. I’ve got broad shoulders to take on criticism but I’ve gone away and I feel better for all the hard work.
The win will come but it’s alright to talk about it, we’ve got to go and do it. The Bradford game was probably the best we’ve been on the ball. We are competitive in every game. The Gaffer has been a breath of fresh air. I’ve come to realise you won’t be the player that everyone loves but my application and will to do well will always be there. I can still be better.
There’s a belief in the dressing room. When you go to Valley Parade and compete, it shows you are a good team. If this game was at the beginning of the season, we may have not got anything.
The fans were outstanding, it’s what they do. We haven’t given them enough this season. It hasn’t been good enough but they still show up in numbers. We will need them.
Home games are to come and we’ve got to take advantage. Your home form is so important and we know what we need to do. If the fans can stay with us we will find a way.
