Micky Mellon On Win Over Grimsby Town

16 December 2015

Manager Hails Quality Of Ogogo's Winning Goal


Micky also provided an update on defenders Jermaine Grandison and Zak Whitbread who were forced off through injury during the game.

"He showed us what he’s all about and he played a massive part in us going to the next round," said Micky.

"There was particularly one from a header is a good a save that I’ve seen in a long time.”


And Micky praised Halstead for a superb one-handed save in particular.

Goalkeeper Mark Halstead was called into action on more than one occasion as the visitors created opportunites to grab the opener.
"We looked a bit laboured at times and that lacked little bit of sharpness," said Micky.

"We had a bit missing and looked a bit jaded if we're honest.

2We have stood here other times and said we have played well and should have got the result but never did, so we’ll take that."


Micky admitted his side weren't at their best on the night but was delighted the result went Shrewsbury's way in the end.

"It's a great time to get the winning goal and it was a great strike, so it's mission accomplished and into the Third Round," said Micky.

"It was a terrific finish and a great goal at any time.

"To score a goal like that is an unbelievable technique to keep that under control and finish, so we were pleased to see that go in."


Ogogo popped up with a first-time shot from the edge of the box to give the Shrews a 1-0 victory at Greenhous Meadow in the Second Round Proper replay on Tuesday night.

Manager Micky Mellon hailed the quality of Abu Ogogo's winning goal as Shrewsbury Town progressed past Grimsby Town and into The Emirates FA Cup Third Round Proper."It was difficult for us when you lose two players to forced substitutions," said Micky.
"We knew then for an awful lot of the game we only had one substitution left so I thought it was worth a gamble and we changed the shape a bit for the end of the game."

"Jermaine has complained about his hamstring and Zak has felt a twinge in his hamstring as well.
