Andy Cook post-Fylde

17 March 2020

Andy Cook was delighted to see his side return to winning ways on Sunday afternoon as they beat Fylde 1-0 away from home.

Speaking after the game Cook expressed his joy: “It was a huge victory in the context of everything that’s been happening. 

“It had been a difficult 24 hours finding out if the fixture would actually go ahead but both teams were happy to play after following advice and guidance and we ended having a good football match today. 

“But it was an unbelievable win. 

“The way that the girls battled and they managed to pop up with the winner again.

“Happy with the clean sheet and happy with the goal.”

The Reds also beat The Coasters only three weeks ago with a 2-1 win and Cook explained that the side were expecting another tough tie that they got again at the weekend.

“The tie was definitely as tough as we were expecting and the score line reflected that,” Cook explained.

“We managed to find some space though and we kept trying to make things happen. 

“Our goal eventually came and it was from a throw-in which is something we’ve been working on. 

“It was a nice and well fought victory and these are the kind of ones you look back on and appreciate at the end of the season.”

Forest were held to a 1-1 draw last Sunday as they picked up a point away to Huddersfield Town and Cook stated it was key for his side to pick up all three points against Fylde.

He said: “It was 100% key to bounce back with a win today after last week’s draw. 

“I’ve said before about how much we need to keep battling and the stay in the game from the first minute and we didn’t get that last week but today we did. 

“We played some good football, we got our goal and then after that our priority was defending, making sure we didn’t concede and we did that well.”
