Cook: Time for us to step up

AFC Bournemouth defender Steve Cook hopes the Cherries can continue their current unbeaten run at Dean Court.

Victory over Burton Albion in the FA Cup on Tuesday night, not only set up a tie against Premier League giants Liverpool, but it also extended the sides unbeaten run at Dean Court to three matches.

With three home fixtures coming up in succession against Watford, Huddersfield Town and Leicester City, Cook is hopeful that an extended home run will aid the Cherries Championship campaign.

Cook told

"We have been a little bit disappointed with some of the results here before the Yeovil and Ipswich games, But now it`s time for us to step up, make this place a fortress and move up the table.

"It won`t be easy because every game is a difficult one in the Championship as we have seen this season, but we feel we have settled down in this league.

"We can pass the ball around at home, take the game to teams and hopefully punish them.

"It`s going to be a tough second half of the season and we will need points as soon as possible...'

The home games are certainly coming thick and fast. To be unbeaten in all four would be an achievement, but perhaps too much to ask. Huddersfied and Leicester will be very tricky and 4 points from these two is possible but not easy. Huddersfield always cause us problems and with Leicester flying they will be looking for an easy win. Not sure about Watford, as they have had 1 win in the last 13 league games and no longer the 6-1 force we met at the beginning of the season? As for Liverpool ....we can always dream!
