STEPHEN Wright believes Hartlepool United have nothing to fear in League One this season.

The 31-year-old has a 100 per cent record in Pools colours having made his debut during the 2-0 win over Exeter City earlier this month and then again starring in the 2-1 triumph at Carlisle United on Saturday.

Those victories have formed part of a seven-game unbeaten run which had propelled Mick Wadsworth’s men up to seventh in the table after the midweek round of matches.

But Pools are still very much within touching distance of the early-season pace-setters and Wright, who played at this level for Brentford last term, sees no reason why his new club can’t continue to threaten promotion territory.

“In this league I honestly cannot see anyone running away with it. Last year it was Brighton and Southampton, but this year?” said the Scouse defender when asked if Pools could sustain their form ahead of this weekend’s home clash with Bury.

“If we can go on a good run and steer clear of injuries then who knows?

“There’s nothing for us to fear I would say.

“We’ve shown already that we can hold our own, even before I signed, and it’s been an excellent start.

“We’ve given ourselves every chance of staying up there now.”
