Cooper's side have won two of six games in League Two this season

Boss Colin Cooper has said Hartlepool United must not allow their commitment to drop after last weekend's first home win of the season against Shrewsbury.

Pools won just 10 of 23 games at Victoria Park last season and waited seven games to secure that first success on home soil last term.

"Things don't happen through chance, they happen through good work, being positive," Cooper told BBC Tees.

"We need to be resolute, it's about being prepared to run beyond."

Cooper added: "We spoke about consistency and if we get a positive result on Saturday, we will be really up and running."

Hartlepool are currently 18th in League Two, with two wins from six games.
