IT’S TIME TO STEP UP – COOK

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

PAUL Cook has chal­lenged his sta­ble of strik­ers to stand up and be counted now that Eoin Doyle is po­ten­tially out for the rest of the sea­son.

The 29-year-old Ir­ish­man, on loan from Pre­ston, suf­fered a groin in­jury against New­port last week­end and the ini­tial signs are not promis­ing.

“It doesn’t look great and that’s a mas­sive dis­ap­point­ment for us,” Cook said. “It’s not just what he does as a player, it’s his ef­fect on the team.

“He’s a team player and he was do­ing that to a tee. It’s a dis­ap­point­ment, but it will of­fer a chance for some­one else.”
