Nottingham Forest defeated Huddersfield Town 2-1 last night to go into the quarter-final of the FA Cup. After the game, defender Steve Cook chose to react on Twitter with a post that supporters will love.
Cook has been a revelation since checking in at the City Ground. The 30-year-old has been commanding at the back and is linking up with Joe Worrall and Scott McKenna absolutely brilliantly.
Last night, he was once again in fine form. The Reds won the game thanks to goals from Sam Surridge and Ryan Yates, with Liverpool waiting in the last eight.
Cook was at the heart of the superb defensive display by Forest. He could perhaps have done better for the goal but when it came to aerial challenges the player was outstanding.
The signing of Cook looks like a shrewd one. He checked in for free after ending a ten-year association with Bournemouth during the January transfer window.
The experienced defender has made close to 200 appearances in the Premier League and he’s showing at the moment that he’s more than capable of performing in the second tier.
Forest host Reading at home on Saturday and the defender will hope to continue in the team.
What has Cook posted on Twitter after Forest beat Huddersfield?
It seems as though the centre-back really enjoys one aspect of playing for the Reds and he’s mentioned the City Ground atmosphere yet again.
Following the full-time whistle last night, 25,000 plus stayed in the stands with the City Ground rocking along to Depeche Mode.
Cook has been a tremendous signing since arriving at the club and clearly, he’s now valuing what it’s like to play in front of a crowd.
Forest are back on home soil on Saturday and the experienced defender will hope to see Trentside in their raptures once again.
