Andy Keen to Cook Up More Goals

Walsall striker Andy Cook has spoken to the press ahead of this weekend's League One clash with Luton Town, and shared his frustration at hitting just five goals in his opening sixteen club appearances.
28-year-old Cook, who joined the club from Tranmere Rovers over the summer, admitted that he feels he should have bagged more goals, but insisted that he will continue to hit the back of the net over the remainder of the campaign as he looks to get well into double figures before the end of the season.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Andy said; "I’ve got five goals but it should be more. I have come in with a record of scoring goals. But over the last few years, I have started slow. Because of that I know the goals are going to come – it’s just about taking my chances.

"The one against Middlesbrough, I felt as though I needed that after a couple of games not scoring. But last year I scored a similar amount to what I have now. And I did the same the year before.

"Obviously it’s no excuse. But hopefully, I will pick up now and start scoring more regularly."

Cook, who has his twenty goals in each of his last - season, has seen both 'keepers and crossbars prevent him from adding to this season's tally and went on to reveal which non-goal frustrated him the most.

He continued; "The one that frustrated me the most was the chance at Scunthorpe. It was a cross into the box, I’ve met it but I think I might have caught it too sweet. Those chances are my bread and butter.

"Me, myself, I was so disappointed I didn’t put that in. I know I should have scored that. They are the chances I thrive off."
