'It hurts me that we are in the position we are but you have to get up and go again' says boss
Paul Hurst says he has appreciated the messages of support he has received as he takes Town to Swansea looking for that first win as Blues boss.
Those messages of support - from inside and outside the game - include Middlesbrough boss, Tony Pulis who delayed his journey back north after Tuesday’s game at Portman Road to speak to Paul.
“I’ve had calls and messages from a lot of people which is much appreciated,” the Town boss told the Club website.
“It’s easy when things are going well. Everyone wants to be your mate. When they are not, you see character in people, whether it be players or other staff around the place.
“It would have been easy the other night for Tony to look to get away with a long journey back home but he was waiting in the office for me and just wanted to pass on his best wishes and I appreciated that.
“It was a sign of respect and understanding that we are in the same job.
“It hurts me that we are in the position we are in, but I can’t wallow in self pity. You get up and go again. That has always been my way. ”
