Tomorrow will be a pivotal result towards the end-of-season finishing positions.

Pools are one place and two points above Jim Bentley’s side AND have a game in hand.

“It will be a tough one - they are below us in the table and they’ll be fighting for every point.

“But we have noreason to be scared of anyone.

“We’ve played really well on Tuesday but need to be more ruthless in the final third.

“They’ve had a tough run.

“Jim’s a top lad, a good manager, he’s been there a long time now.

“They played a five on Tuesday night for the first time and lost.

“But, as I’ve often said, anyone can beat anyone on their day in this division.

“League Two is a grind, especially when tyou are playing Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday.

“We’ll prepare properly and concentrate on our own game.

“I’m not too worried about who we are playing, I’m more concerned about how we play, how we go about it.”
