After telling the waiting media that he only wanted to speak out of respect for the travelling supporters he said: "I don't want to become one of those boring, repetitive managers. If results stay the same, someone else will be speaking to you - that's how football is, that's the nature of the game.

"I pride myself in my teams and how we play but that wasn't a team I enjoyed watching today."

Cook didn't want to dissect the game, nor did he want to openly criticise his players but his dismay was clear to see.
