Cousins Should Have Listened To Ted

Cousins Should Have Listened To Ted

Colchester United’s reserve keeper Mark Cousins admitted he could have saved Brain Howard’s second and equalising penalty against Barnsley on Saturday – if only he had taken the advice of evergreen pro Teddy Sheringham.

The 20-year-old failed to save either of the harsh awards when both were converted by Howard in a 2-2 draw, but Cousins told the press afterwards: “Ted is always giving advice. Before the second penalty he told me it would go the same way [ as the first] but I went the wrong way. I should have taken his word.”

In the EADT Cousins also admitted that he had not expected to be in action during the game, but was thrust into play after first-choice Dean Gerken received a red card with about half of the first period elapsed.

“My parents didn’t come and watch, because I didn’t think I’d get on the pitch,” added Cousins. “They are probably regretting it now.”
