COLIN Nish admits he wishes he could have done more to save Mick Wadsworth’s job.

It was the former Pools boss who brought the Scot to English football during the summer, signing him on a free transfer from Hibernian.

But Wadsworth was relieved of his duties by chairman Ken Hodcroft earlier this week following a run of seven straight home defeats.

The news came as a surprise to the players, and Nish – currently sidelined following knee surgery – regrets not being able to do more to help reverse the club’s poor form.

“The manager leaving was a surprise, to be honest, but obviously some people are not happy with our home form,” he said.

“It’s one of those ones that you wish you could have done something to help him keep his job because he was nice enough to bring me here.”
