Cook’s Corner: Bridlington Town v Liversedge

Bridlington Town manager Mitch Cook was left as bored as most of the crowd after Saturday’s 1-0 win over Liversedge.

He said: “In terms of entertainment, that was probably the worst game I’ve been involved with in my two years at Bridlington Town. It was horrendous.

“We were terrible, Liversedge weren’t much better and we had time-wasting going on after about five minutes. Yet, they will probably feel they could have got something out of the game.

“It was just a dead game,it was horrendous to watch and I can’t imagine the players enjoyed playing in it either.

“Last year we fell away at this time of year and it happened the season before too. I’ll be disappointed if it happens again. I want us to try to get as many goals and as many points as possible.

“The injury situation has got worse too. I think Tom Lee has broken the same bone in his foot which he did last year so we won’t see him again this season. Scott Phillips is probably going to be out for two weeks with a foot injury. He ended up getting it checked out at hospital. Chris Batchelor is not available now because of cricket commitments

“One of the few positives was that we kept a clean sheet. We knew Mark Wilberforce couldn’t be with us at Arnold on Tuesday because of work so I thought Paul Fraser deserved to keep his place after the Barton game. It didn’t seem fair to leave him out for one game, then bring him back. He has never let us down.

“We end with four of our last five games away from home because of the cup ties earlier in the season. It’s not ideal.”
