Andy Cook: 'We're Going to Fight to Stay in League One'

Walsall striker Andy Cook has spoken ahead of this weekend's League One six-pointer with Bradford City and discussed his desire to repay the faith manager Dean Keates showed when he gave him his break in the EFL by hitting more goals and keep the Saddlers in the league.
Cook, who joined the Saddlers on a free transfer from Tranmere Rovers last summer, has scored sixteen goals in forty all-competition appearances so far this season and is determined to get back among the goals and ensure that Dean Keates can keep his job at the club

Speaking via the Express & Star, Andy, who has a proven goal-scoring record in non-league football, said; "He did not have to bring me here. He took a chance on me – I had never played in the league before. I never doubted myself that I would get goals.

"I never doubted myself. But I needed someone to take that chance on me when others haven’t. He did that. I’ve scored the goals to prove I can do it – but I need to repay him by scoring the goals that keep us in the league.

"I’m in League One now and I’m here to stay, I do not want to be relegated. I want to stay in League One with Walsall. Me and the rest of the lads are going to put up the fight needed to stay in the league.

"We have definitely got players who want to fight for the cause. There is no player in that dressing room that is just happy to come along for the ride. We are all desperate to go out and win games. That is what we have to do now."
