COOK READY FOR NEXT AWAY ASSIGNMENT

24 February 2015

Wide-man building on momentum...

THE SADDLERS made it eight away League games unbeaten at the weekend as we battled out a 1-1 draw with Bradford City.

It was a hard-working display from Dean Smith’s men as we came from a goal behind to finish strongly and bring home a point.

The equaliser came from the head of Jordy Hiwula following a delicious cross from the left by Jordan Cook.

“To go there and get a point was a good result,” said Cook. “We knew it would be a battle and we worked really hard throughout.

“We looked the brighter team towards the end and could have nicked all three points.

“Bradford have beaten a number of teams from higher levels this season; I don’t think these teams realise how difficult it is out there in those conditions, but we prepared well and knew their strengths and weaknesses and were able to exploit them to keep our good away form going.

“We’re a good counter-attacking team and it is serving us well on the road. This could be a massive point come the end of the season and now we look to build upon it on Tuesday as we travel to Preston.

“It’s another tough assignment for us, but we put in one of our best away performances of the season there last month in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

“They have spent money to assemble a strong squad, but we fancy ourselves against anyone at this level.

“It’s all about momentum and adding to our points tally. If we keep plugging away and doing our thing, we will be okay.

“When teams come at us, we would back ourselves every time. We are hungry to do our best for each other and turn what is already a good season into a fantastic season.”
