Hughes prepared to take responsibility

New Hartlepool United First Team Coach John "Yogi" Hughes has said that he will the rap or the plaudits for the result against Coventry City tomorrow.

Speaking to the Hartlepool Mail, Hughes said: “I’ve got to make an instant assessment of this squad and I will take full responsibility for the result on Saturday

“I’m here with no pre-conceived ideas of the players. “I’m not judging anyone, it’s a clean slate.

“I’m sure there are players who will want an opportunity who maybe felt they weren’t getting one.

“The only way to do that it to train really hard, train the way you play and show to me you want to be part of that culture I’m trying to build.

“I’ve been there in a dressing room – I’ve been a prankster, a joker, a leader, a captain, I’ve been injured, I’ve scored, I’ve been there and done it – we all want it.

“I ask my dressing room to come out of their comfort zone, to do things they’ve not been doing, to give an extra five per cent, to change habits, because if we keep doing what we have been doing then results will stay the same.”
