Stanley chief in keep up the good work call
8:17am Monday 10th September 2012 in Sport
PAUL Cook says his young Accrington Stanley side have set a benchmark which they need to match for the rest of the season.
A point at home to Bradford City took the Reds’ tally to 10 points from the first five games, keeping them in the top seven.
And Cook has challenged his players to at least maintain that ratio to give them a chance in the promotion shake-up.
“The lads are playing well at the minute and it’s been a great start for them,” he said. “Ten points after five games – that’s the benchmark, 10 points after every five games.”
Cook admitted he could have no real complaints after seeing his side come under severe pressure in the first half, needing Ian Dunbavin to twice come to their rescue to go into the break goalless.
“We got a deserved goal, we got in the ascendency and on another day we’d have probably seen the game out,” he said. “Fair play to Bradford they’re a good side, a very strong powerful side with good players.”
