Cook, who joined the club from Tranmere Rovers over the summer, has now hit fifteen all-competition goals in a Saddlers shirt and hopes that he and his teammates can use the victory over the Gills as a platform to get their season back on track.
Speaking via the Express & Star, Andy said; "I was buzzing to get a hat-trick. But the main thing was getting the win and hopefully we have now turned a corner. Results hadn't been going for us.
"The run we were on - it plays at the back of your mind. But at Gillingham, I thought we were really good. It was a game we needed to win and as a team, we are delighted with the clean sheet.
"As a striker, it's great to get the goals, you thrive off goals. But clean sheets also win games, as a team, we are buzzing off that. We have to now use this as a platform to change our fortunes and move up the table."
Andy then went on to discuss just how many goals he hopes to score over the course of the campaign, insisting that it doesn't really matter how many he gets as long as the team is winning games. Cook continued; "When I joined the club – with it being my first season in the league – I said I wanted 15 goals.
"But in my head, because I have got 20 in the last four years, I wanted 20 again. I'm on course for that now. Who knows I might get 25. But it doesn't matter how many goals I get as long as we are winning games."
