Lee made superb save to deny Rovers striker Eliot Richards before second half goals from Jay O'Shea and Armand Gnanduillet secured the points.

"I could sit here and praise Tommy Lee but I would be here all night," said Cook. "He's a top goalie and top goalies make good saves.

"When you are building a team and looking to go forward you have a chance if you have a top keeper.

"We are a club that expects to get promoted and expects to be at the top end of the division. Unfortunately we aren't and for us to get there we have to have good players and a lot of ours are and they must turn up."

He added: "It's mathematically possible for us to go up with nine games to go and I believe, everyday I think we are going to get promoted and I will drive this club forward as best I can.

"The result at Cheltenham hurt, (a 1-0 defeat on Tuesday night) the 92nd minute goal was not what we deserved so to bounce back against a very strong Bristol Rovers team is a very important result."

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
