Cooke: Terrific Blackpool Character

20 August 2017

Callum Cooke praised Blackpool’s character on Saturday, after Gary Bowyer’s men recovered from going behind three times at Doncaster Rovers to earn a point.

Pool produced the perfect response to each Doncaster goal, with Cooke finding the back of the net for the crucial third 14 minutes from time, and he was happy post-match.
“It would have been easy to fold, especially going behind three times,” he explained. “We showed great character and it’s a good point away from home. 
“We watched the goals back and the third one, they didn’t touch the ball from our kick-off, which I think shows the quality in the squad and hopefully we can do something this season because the lads are ambitious and hungry.”
The Middlesbrough loanee came off the bench in the first-half for the injured Mark Cullen and now hopes to kick-on after opening his Blackpool account.
“It was unfortunate for ‘Cully’ (Mark Cullen), as pros, we don’t like to see other pros get injured, so my condolences go to him.
“The Gaffer told me to change the game and thankfully I had a bit of an impact, so my performance I was happy with and hopefully I will go again next Saturday,” he added.
