Time To Show Our True Colours – Mafuta

Gus Mafuta, Chesterfield v Hartlepool United

Gus Mafuta has insisted that Pools need to ensure that the emphatic nature of the win at Chesterfield could prove a pivotal moment in their National League campaign.

The midfield star netted twice during the 5-1 rout at The Proact Stadium as Dave Challinor’s men turned on the style with an aggressive and ruthless display in Derbyshire.

However, Mafuta has admitted that it will count for nothing if Pools don’t start delivering that standard of performance on a more regular basis as they look to climb the table.

“It is always good to play in a game when you get a result like that,” he told Pools TV.

“We were disappointed to concede just before half-time – we had to regroup and go again but we did that and we put them to the sword.

“We needed that reaction so I am glad we were able to do it. That kind of results breeds confidence.

“I think it shows what we’re capable of but it’s just about doing it on a consistent basis because that’s what puts you up there so it’s about time we do that.”
