Rob Scott pleased by Andy Cook's impact as Grimsby Town beat Hyde to go top
ROB Scott hailed Andy Cook’s impact after the substitute fired Grimsby Town to a crucial 2-0 victory over Hyde last night.
With the Mariners off-key and struggling to break down the visitors at Blundell Park, Cook was the hero, scoring twice in the final ten minutes to secure the points.
That victory also sent the hosts back to the top of the Blue Square Bet Premier table on a night of inactivity elsewhere in the division.
“Andy’s given us something to think about, that’s for sure,” Scott told the Telegraph.

“He’s a good player. He’s a great technical player – he can pass it and he can run with it.
“We just want to see him do that little bit more in high areas. We don’t want him around our own box. We want him to pick up balls on the halfway line, drive on with it and link up with the other attackers.
“That’s what he did when he came on and that’s what we needed.
“We want to see him doing that more and he will certainly be an asset to this club if he keeps doing it. He’s a very valuable member of our squad.”
Scott admitted that the Mariners were well below par following ten days without a match.
“It’s a positive in that we’ve won the game and kept a clean sheet after what was a lacklustre first half performance,” he added.
“We looked rusty. Were we a little fatigued physically or mentally? No, we weren’t at all.
“We haven’t been able to train too much because of the conditions and that showed last night.
“We were very lethargic in our play and there was no energy to it. We made a couple of changes in the second half, that’s what we’re paid to do, and that lifted us a little bit.
“We played some decent stuff after the break, got some momentum going and penned them in a bit.
The joint boss refused to comment on speculation linking Marcus Marshall with a rapid return to Blundell Park following Luton’s bid for the winger’s services.
“We’ve got nothing more to say on that. There are always rumours and there’s nothing to add,” he said.
