Manager Paul Cook has reflected on our draw against Notts County yesterday and said he’s pretty pleased with a point owing to the performance we put in but for him there’s no doubting the fact that if it hadn’t have been for their keeper Roy Carroll he’d have been stood there talking about a victory.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game an upbeat and pretty happy gaffer explained.

‘That’s footie and you just keep going. That’s your habits, you work hard and keep doing the right things. To be fair to the keeper he was sensational. That’s why he’s an international keeper and he’s had the career he’s had.’

Cook went on to ‘fair play’ Notts County as well for their performance because they certainly made a good game of it going ahead as they did before we got back on level terms, but that praise for them was qualified with him saying he wasn’t going to use excuses, but having to shuffle our pack a touch didn’t help things.

‘It’s not just me making excuses, but when we keep making changes we’re not getting that continuity in what we’re trying to do. Our lads showed great work ethic and they’re a credit to the club. They go about the game in such a good manner and they’re so positive in how they try to play, especially in the second half when we’ve created chance after chance.’

With far more positives to take from the game than the single point we gained, Cook again pointed to the chances we created and the form of their keeper, because he knows really we did more than enough to have won that game so coming out with a little frustration on the back of that is a far better feeling for him than having to sit there thinking we were lucky to come out with a point, as long as we keep creating chances like that, we should end up winning more than we don’t and ultimately that’s what it’s about.
