Mambo: “One point is better than none”

26 January 2013

Yado pleased to make with debut and clean sheet

By Matt Johnson

Town loanee Yado Mambo expressed his elation to ShrewsWeb after making his full debut, and keeping a clean sheet, in the goalless draw with Bury at the Greenhous Meadow.

The powerful 6ft3’ defender came on as a sub for the injured Jermaine Grandison at Swindon and the youngster, on-loan from Charlton until the end of the season, stepped up to the fold with ease against the Shakers.

“It felt nice to get my first start,” said Mambo. “It’s especially good at home so the crowd can see what I can do.

“I felt good, kept it simple with my headers and tackles and just kept the ball moving so overall I’m happy with my performance. It’s my main objective to keep a clean sheet as a defender and to win is a bonus, but I think I’ll take the point today.”

Mambo admitted that Town struggled to break through the Shakers’ stubborn formation, but on another day with greater attacking potency, it could’ve been a completely different story.

“You could say its two points dropped because I felt that we had more than enough to win the game. We didn’t create that many chances because they defended really well. They had two banks of four so it was really hard, but I guess on another day the result could’ve been different and we could’ve won the game.

“I’m pleased with a point to be fair. They came here and played deep and made it really hard for us to play through them. We didn’t lose, that’s the main thing and one point is better than none.
