Bournemouth defender Steve Cook has praised the team’s ‘never-say-die’ attitude during their 3-3 draw with Watford.

The Cherries came from two goals down early in the first half to level the scores at 3-all by half-time at the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday night.

Watford captain scored two quick goals, before goals from Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson leveled the scores at 2-2.

Ken Sema put the Hornets up 3-2 but a Ryan Fraser strike ensured both sides went into the break with the scores level at 3-3.

“The never-say-die attitude is something we have spoken about a lot recently and it really shone through,” said Cook, according to Bournemouth Echo.

“On the face of it, it’s a really good point because we came back after being 2-0 down to a really good team.”

“We went behind again but to respond again shows we do have the capability to do it.”

“But when you score three goals at home, you should be winning.”

Discussing further the team’s refusal to give up, Cook said: “That’s been instilled in us for a long time but we haven’t shown that recently.”

“The manager has been on at us in the past few days about it. And you need that if you are going to do well.”

“You are always going to have setbacks in this league – it’s natural. Everyone must have been panicking on the outside but we always believe we can come back and nick something.”
