MICKY Barron today vowed to stamp his own mark on Hartlepool United, sending his players into tomorrow’s clash with Colchester United with one clear message: Attack, attack, attack.
The caretaker boss is mindful that the visit of The U’s could be his last in temporary charge of the club.
But, regardless of his future, Barron is desperate to be the man who presides over the culmination of Pools’ seven-game losing run on home soil, admitting he’ll roll out his own brand of attacking football in a bid to achieve a much-needed victory.
“A lot of people expect me to defend and play boring football because I was a defender, but I don’t know where they get that idea from,” he told SportMail.
“Mick (Wadsworth) had his style, Danny Wilson had his style and I’ve got to come up with my own.
“I like teams to score goals and the only way to do that is by being positive.
“Mick’s gone and it’s a new start – whether it’s one game for me or more we don’t know.
“But that doesn’t matter – we need a win.
“We need that to give the fans a lift and to get the players back to enjoying playing at home.”
