Keates Backs Andy Cook to Grow in Confidence Following Substitute Strike

1:10 pm Tuesday, 11 September 2018  
As he and his squad prepare for this weekend's League One clash with Doncaster Rovers, Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the local press and backed summer-signing Andy Cook to go from strength to strength following his point-securing goal against Barnsley on Saturday afternoon.
Keates believes that 27-year-old, Bishop Auckland-born Cook, who has seen several goal-scoring opportunities thwarted by a combination of bad luck and superb goalkeeping, will be much more confident after he came off the bench to level the scores against the Tykes.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "He can take so much pleasure from that goal. It’ll boost his confidence and he can take it forward. He has been unlucky the past few weeks and he had been getting frustrated.

"You look at Rochdale and he could have put us 3-0 up but it has hit the keeper flush in the face. Even in training, he was connecting with them unbelievably well and the keepers were pulling saves off.

"He just needs to calm down a little bit, breathe and not let it play on his mind too much. It had been coming but the goal at Barnsley will do him the world of good."
