BRIDLINGTON Town manager Mitch Cook was delighted with his side’s second-half display as they came from behind to seal all three points at Queensgate.
Former Scarborough FC player and coach Cook said: “It was a game of two halves. I don’t think that we played particularly well in the first half, they surprised us a bit with the formation that they played.
“It took us a while to adjust to that, and although we weren’t particularly good, it was only 1-0 at half-time and we weren’t out of the game.
“I think that if Mark (Wilberforce) didn’t make that save in the 45th minute then it could have been a different game.
“We went in at half-time and had a chat with a few players and adjusted things.
“I didn’t think that we were working hard enough, which was surprising given the nature of the game.
“However, in the second half I think we got on top and we overpowered Scarborough.
“We were miles better after half-time and the team showed good work-rate, character and attitude.”
Cook was disappointed to see influential midfielder Ash Allanson limp off with an ankle injury, but was pleased with how his players responded when Allanson’s departure forced a reshuffle.
Cook added: “Ash is a good player at this level and it looks a nasty injury so it was a blow to lose him but Joe Danby came on and did well.
“He had a great game in midweek so I had every confidence in him and I had every confidence in moving Billy about.
“We try to make sure that the players are versatile enough, Billy has played right-back and left-back then gone into midfield and then up front.
“Whether it is luck or good management it has worked for us and he has scored the two goals.”
