Nicky Deverdics today called on his Hartlepool United team-mates to turn draws into wins.
Deverdics scored a fine free-kick early in the second half to open the scoring in last night’s game against Tranmere Rovers, but Jay McEveley’s header secured a point for the visitors six minutes later.
The result means that Pools have only lost once in 12 games, but they have let winning positions slip in their last two encounters.
The National League table remains wide open – Pools are only eight points behind new leaders Dover Athletic and three off the play-offs – and Deverdics wants more wins on the board.
“It keeps the unbeaten run going,” was the Geordie’s assessment of the 1-1 draw. “But we’ve all said in the changing room after the game that we need to start picking up three points.
“One point, one point, one point isn’t going to get us anywhere.”
