Richard Money reacts to Hartlepool United defeat
*'I'm going to do my best to try and get us out of trouble'*
PUBLISHED: 7th Oct 17

New Solihull Moors manager Richard Money admitted the team need to toughen up if the club is to climb the table.

Speaking after watching his team succumb to a late Hartlepool goal, Money gave a forthright assessment of the club’s current predicament.

He said: “It’s my first experience and you cannot feel anything but sorry for the boys – they’ve given everything they’ve got. It was a bit scrappy but we need to battle and scrap and play when we can. Two really poor errors cost us the game and really Hartlepool had nothing else.

“This was always going to be a tough start. They are team that’s just come down from the Football League and they are expected to be in the top seven or better. They would be delighted they were able to pinch it at the end but that’s what football is.

“I felt we should have come in at half time in front. There was a lack of confidence in front of goal. But, as I’ve said in the dressing room, you cannot feel sorry for yourselves for too long - pick yourselves up and go again. I’ve seen enough today to suggest that if we can get them a bit of help in key areas on the pitch then we can grind out results and maybe do a bit better than that.

“We have got young players learning their trade and they need a bit of help if I’m honest, and that’s what we are going to try to do. There are young players who are mainly on loan from academies who have come to learn, but we really haven’t got time for them to learn. We are in a position where we need results pretty quick.”

Money said that the priority is getting points on the board and he is looking to instil a new toughness to The Moors to achieve that.

“There’s only one way to get confidence – win games. I’m going to do my best to try and get us out of trouble. We are not going to get out of it by the way that we play, we are going to get out of it by how hard and tough we battle and scrap, and then we will start to play.

“It’s a big challenge, a big task. I look around where we are and there’s potential to build here and there’s certainly some ambition to do that, but at the minute results are the only thing I can focus on. Added to that, I’m trying to bring in one or two who can help us do that.”
