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.

"I`m more than happy to play in any position the manager asks me to, I have played right back a few times before, so it didn`t feel too different...'

'...We never let Doncaster have any real chances where you felt they could have scored - we were solid throughout.

'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..."
