Micky Mellon On Draw With Cambridge United

7 March 2015

Manager Disappointed But Feels Point Is Important

"It was a good goal from Bobby. We hit the bar a couple of times and just couldn't get that second goal which probably would have seen us over the line.

"When you get to the late stages of the game you believe that you might have done enough.

"But it's a tough division which goes right to the end as we've seen many times in our favour over the course of the season.

"They put us under pressure and went very direct and made us defend - they're as big a team as you'll see."
And the Town manager said:

Grant, who scored both goals in the 2-1 win at Accrington Stanley on Tuesday night, fired home the opener in the 16th minute from Mickey Demetriou's header down.

"Not to take all three points is obviously disappointing, but the way the results have gone mean it's a big point gained," said Micky.

"We'll look at the positives and move on like we do with all games.

"The first half was very good. In the second half we never passed it as well as we could.

"You're always going to get like that when it's 1-0. There's always that one where they can get back into it again."


And Micky believes that the overall result could still be important in the long run.

Town slipped down to second in the Sky Bet League 2 table as a result but remain six points clear of the play-off spots.

A 94th-minute equaliser from the U's Sulley Kaikai cancelled out Bobby Grant's opener early in the first half at the Greenhous Meadow.

Manager Micky Mellon was disappointed not to take all three points from the 1-1 draw with Cambridge United - but insists it is still a big point for Shrewsbury Town.
