Accrington boss Paul Cook says he does not know his best XI and insists that is the way it has to be if they are to continue their impressive start to the campaign.

The Reds followed up a home win over Aldershot with a 2-1 victory at AFC Wimbledon to move fourth in the npower League Two table after nine matches.

"I think it's a problem for a manager if he knows his best XI," Cook told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"I think it means that a lot of lads in and around the squad are there to make the numbers up.

"We don't want to have players at the club who we don't think about playing.

"It's not being critical on anybody who's been here before, but come the day before a game we should be speaking about who's trained really well and who wants to play, because that hunger and desire from training will go into matches."
