The views of Bridlington Town boss Mitch Cook after a 9-0 win over Lincoln Moorlands Railway and a 2-1 win over Armthorpe Welfare

“I was delighted at the amount of chances we created against Lincoln and the quality of some of the goals.

“It’s great to see Craig Hogg and Josh Greening in the top two places in the leading goalscorers list.

“It is a team effort, but it goes to show that we like to attack and if we make chances, we have the quality to take them.

“Lincoln were not strong opponents but we had to go and beat them. I’m pleased were ruthless in the second half.

“When we played the away game last week, we were 3-0 up at half time but didn’t add to it.

“So when it was 4-0 at half time this week, I said I didn’t want the same to happen.

“Armthorpe was a different task altogether. They came to do a job and looked happy at 1-0 down, taking their time with goal kicks and it seemed they had set themselves to wait for a set piece.

“We created chanes again, but a few players didn’t take them, and once we went 2-0 up I felt that if we could get a third, we could go and maybe get five.

“We were solid at the back, apart from the misunderstanding between Mark Wilberforce and Chris Jenkinson which led to the goal.

“But they didn’t offer much and we defended the high ball into the box really well.

“Two games in three days took its toll a little bit but we would have taken 11 goals and six points at the start of the weekend.

“We now face two really tough away games, Staveley on Saturday and at Armthorpe on Tuesday evening.

“It will probably be two of the toughest games we could have had at this stage of the season.

“Teams are not going to allow us to be pretty like we were on Saturday but we have proved on our travels that we can stand up to teams.

“Wilberforce will be working for the Staveley game and we will choose between Paul Fraser and Ben Escritt who are hoping to be available.

“Craig Suddaby has gone away with the school where he works so he misses out again.

“Stuart Rice was ill and missed the Armthorpe game, he looked terrible when he came on against Lincoln, but hopefully he will be OK. Joe Danby has been ill too.

“Armthorpe away could be a different kettle of fish, because we saw them against Parkgate a few weeks ago and they have some Evo-Stik players available for midweek games.”
