'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Opposition View - Shrewsbury Town


Following yesterday's 2-2 draw with Shrewsbury Town, here are some views on the game from Shrews' manager Graham Turner and a few of their fans.

Turner felt his side did enough to win the game and was naturally disappointed to drop two points when Lewis Montrose fired home a last-gasp equaliser for the Chairboys.

"It does feel like a defeat when you're 2-1 up in stoppage time, and somehow the referee finds four minutes of it and you only get a point," he said.

"It's difficult to accept, but it's one of those days where you hit the inside of the post and the keeper makes a couple of great saves."

"Overall, I thought we had a very good first half and it was unjust that we came in without scoring. We then showed good character in the second half when we went a goal down but hit back with two good goals."

"The disappointment is conceding one from a set-piece late on. It was a bit like panic stations with too many players back in the penalty area without reading where their player was, and then the shot moved in the air to make it hard for the keeper."

"I have to be pleased with the overall application and quality of play though - it was first class," said Turner


The Shrews' fans were able to temper their disappointment with delight at their overall performance and satisfaction with their fine start to the season.

The following extracts are taken from Blue-and-Amber and Shrewschat.

'Today was a case of two points dropped. Good performance but too much football and not taking our chances was the big problem. Wycombe were nothing special and were there for the taking. We outplayed them but over-egged our attacks and let them take the lead and gain in confidence.'

'We dominated the first half and should have been 2-0 up at half time. We were slow at the beginning of second half but that all changed when Ainsworth came on.'

'A slow burner of a game. Some great chances for us towards the end of the first half and we could have won it there and then, but Wycombe were a different team in the second-half and gave us some problems. Great response from us after they scored and a great goal from Ainsworth.'

'I thought we created more chances than in the four-nil win at Stockport. The difference from this season to last is brilliant.'

'Man of the match has to be Ainsworth even for the short time he was on, a quite brilliant performance.'

'Four added minutes was indicated by the 4th official at the end of the second half. Where he got them from, lord only knows. Did he think Fergie was the Wycombe manager and that he ought to give them 6 minutes extra, or in fact, until they scored? Very dodgy.'

'This is the second game on the trot that Town should have buried a team by half time. We couldn't do much about the free-kick, but we need to be able to close a game out and run down the clock when we have just minutes to go.'

'It shows how times have changed when we come away from Wycombe moaning because we've lost two points and had to settle for a draw.'
