Andy Cook post-Huddersfield Town

Andy Cook was left frustrated that his side came away from Sunday’s game empty handed as they fell to a 2-1 defeat away to Huddersfield Town.

Speaking after the game, Cook said: “To concede with five minutes left and to lose the game like that is a tough one to take. 

“Some of the patterns of play and some bits that we did were great so it’s a difficult one to take. 

“We we’re disappointed not to at least earn the draw.” 

Charlotte Greengrass headed the side level just before the break after the home side opened the scoring on the 13th minute. But the side were left with nothing to show for their efforts as Huddersfield secured all three points with a thundering strike on the 84th minute and Cook explains the timings of the goals made it a tough afternoon for his team. 

“The game was there for either team to take and Huddersfield were the ones to take their chances in the end,” he said. 

“I think we played well in the second-half and stopped a lot of their attacks but like anything when you concede that late it’s tough to pick yourselves up to get back into it. 

“We’ve got to now assess them little bits of the game where we can control it and take our time with the ball and recognise how we can improve that next time. 

“But overall, it’s a frustrating one because of the timing of their winning goal.” 

Despite the loss The Reds still remain top of the league standings and Cook says his side can take the positives from that. 

He said: “To be top of the table after six games is great and we can take them positives. 

“But, we’re left disappointed with the game and the result and not being able to pick up them three points to add to our tally. 

“But we can’t dwell on it for too long, we need to get back to it at training and prepare for the next game.”
