Matt Cocker slams in his eighth goal of the season to open the scoring against C.D. Tetescoses this afternoon.

This afternoon’s excellent 2-0 victory over C.D. Tetescoses at New Home Park leaves Brook Street knowing that a point away to MacAuleys Saints next Saturday should be ample to secure the league title, however even at this late stage Eike refuses to be drawn on title celebrations next weekend.

“It is just another game to us”, said the German. “We don’t ‘play for draws’, that’s not the Brook Street way; it never has been. We go into every game looking to win it, and next week’s game will be no different”.

Pressed on whether Brook Street’s twelve goal advantage over FC Scourie effectively meant that a point was all that is all that is required, Eike, clearly annoyed retorted, “Look guys, I’m here to talk about a terrific win for Brook Street today. Let’s concentrate on that, eh? I’m not going to answer any questions about next week, so it that’s all you’ve got, I’ll be leaving and going to get my foot fixed”.

Warning heeded, the media asked firstly about his own injury.

“Yeah, I’ve got a gash in my foot, it’s just one of those things but that’s my season over”. He added with a wry smile, “It’s very sore, hence I’m a bit tetchy tonight, in case you hadn’t noticed”.

Turning to the match itself he said, “Tetescoses are a real tough nut to crack, they keep things really tight and are a superb defensive unit. No-one scores many goals against them, so to score twice was truly excellent from us”.

He continued, “It also showed that we are not solely reliant on our forwards, and we can score goals all over the park. The fact that Matt [Cocker] scored his eighth league goal today, and Attila [Gyöngyösi] his sixth just goes to prove this”.

Finishing the press conference abruptly, Eike said, “My foot is really hurting now so I’m afraid ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to cut this short and head off to hospital. Thank you”.

No-one could begrudge the Brook Street coach this, especially after the effort he has put into turning the club around following last season’s relegation back into Division IV. Regardless of what happens next week in the Highlands, Brook Street are on sound foundations and the re-building process is well under way.
