Andy Cook expressed his delight at bagging his 30th goal of the season, as he netted the opener in City’s dramatic 2-1 win over Northampton Town at Sixfields Stadium yesterday. 

The No.9 talked through his first-half header - which was his 50th for the club - and confessed how scoring in claret and amber is always a proud, enjoyable and personal moment for him.

“I absolutely enjoyed that,” Cook said.

“I always enjoy winning. It was a proud moment for me, personally too.

“To get 30 goals shows what I have been working towards all season, and thankfully I can contribute to the three points.

“Banksy put a good ball in the box, and initially I went to make my run across the front, but I saw some extra space at the far post. I am glad I got onto the end of it.

“I was getting a little bit of stick beforehand, so I felt as though I had to give a little bit back with the celebration. I always enjoy scoring.

“To get 30 goals in any season, is an unbelievable achievement. There are two more games left though, so I aim to contribute in them too.”

The frontman was pleased with the performance from each of his teammates, as he described a “buzzing dressing room” before further lauding the belief to respond, despite being pegged back just after the hour mark.

The 32-year-old praised his defenders who withstood spells of pressure from the Cobblers, as well as commending the character to score the winner in dramatic circumstances.

“All the lads are buzzing in the dressing room,” he added.

“I mean, we conceded in the last minute last week, and now we bag the winner in injury time. 

“I am pleased for all the lads, but especially for Roms (Crichlow) to get his first for the club. 

“Of course, that shows character. We knew if they got the win they would go up, and we did not want that. 

“We reacted well to the equaliser. All the lads at the back did excellently, and Harry (Lewis) pulled off some fantastic saves. 

“Then we went up there and scored the winner - it shows tremendous character.”

Tickets for Wednesday's trip to Crewe Alexandra are SOLD OUT, with over 2,000 Bantams set to descend on the Mornflake Stadium.
