Cook happy with Plate progress

10 December 2019

Andy Cook was delighted to see his Nottingham Forest side progress through to the 3rd round of the FA Women’s National League Plate after a victory over Leeds United Women on Sunday.

Leeds made it a difficult afternoon for Forest Women, especially in the first half when the Reds’ could not hit the recent standards they have shown in previous games.

Speaking after the game on the first half Cook said: “The girls heard what my thoughts were at half time, we went in changed a couple things around, moved a few positions but we got the rub of the green a little with the first goal, it should have been 0-0 at half time. There is still a lot we need to do to keep improving”

Cook was impressed with Leeds United “Leeds proved themselves to be a good team and we had to keep them quite in the first half, we spoke about it before the game and Leeds did a good job creating a few opportunities but they did good in that first half”

After an opening goal from Laura Dexter followed by a second half brace from leading scorer Precious Hamilton, it was also pleasing for Andy Cook to get the clean sheet.

“Over the moon with the clean sheet. We talk about our standards and a clean sheet is always part of those conversations so it was pleasing to get three goals and the clean sheet”

The win now moves Forest Women to an eight game winning streak, something Andy Cook is pleased about.

“It’s brilliant, we spoke about it in the week, we are just trying to do our jobs and win football matches and that’s what we have done again against a good Leeds United side.  A little different from other performances but pleased to move on."
