MICKY Barron admits he will need time to stamp his mark on the Hartlepool United side – but the caretaker coach refuses to budge from his attacking philosophy.
The 36-year-old has presided over two matches since Mick Wadsworth’s departure, both times adopting an offensive 4-3-3 approach.
But on both occasions the outcome was a losing one, most recently last weekend’s 1-0 defeat against Colchester United, an eighth on the spin at Victoria Park.
Barron, although not admitting as much on the record, is believed to fancy making his temporary tenure a permanent one.
And, speaking to SportMail, the former Pools favourite admits he’ll continue to implement his own ideas in the hope of sparking an upturn in fortune.
“For however long I’m in charge I’ll try to be positive in training and in the attitude towards games,” he said.
