Cook: Happy to play anywhere

AFC Bournemouth defender Steve Cook continued to show his versatility at the back for the Cherries on Saturday.

Cook feels confident in any position at the back and with the Cherries collecting their first clean sheet under Eddie Howe, Cook praised the whole team following the victory.

'Shaun MacDonald was very disciplined in front of us, so I would say we performed well with a back six (James, Cook, Elphick, Addison, Daniels).

'We are now looking like a side who are very hard to break down and that is important..."
