Cook's late equaliser, a fine curler from 20 yards, secured a 2-2 draw for Russell Slade's men after goals from Paul Hayes and Clayton Donaldson had cancelled out Martin Rowlands' opener.

But with the Bees down to 10 men after Jake Bidwell was sent off and David Mooney having a penalty saved by Simon Moore, Cook knows they missed a chance to grab victory.

"We should have won," he said.

"We were disappointed at half-time, we thought we had outplayed them and out-passed them and they had two corners and scored both.

"The gaffer went mad at half-time, saying we need to defend them better because all our good play was for nothing so it was important we put that right in the second half.

"I know they'd had a man sent off but I think we would have got something out of the game anyway."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
