Hartlepool manager Ronnie Moore says his team should not be afraid of any other side after earning back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Pools remain bottom of League Two, but followed up a win at Morecambe by beating Oxford United on Tuesday.

Moore's side next host Cambridge and Mansfield, eight and six points clear of the relegation zone respectively.

"We'll prepare again for two strong sides but we shouldn't fear anyone," Moore told BBC Radio Tees.

The 62-year-old former Tranmere boss took charge of Hartlepool in December.

Pools had not won a league game since October prior to Moore's arrival, and had managed only four in 15 games before they overcame the Shrimpers on Saturday.

"I said before the Morecambe game it's about time we had a bit of luck," he said.

"It's like the buses isn't it - when one comes, two come at the same time, and that's what's happened.

"I don't know when the last time we had back-to-back wins was but we've got to keep it going now."
