Micky Mellon On Defeat To Doncaster Rovers

20 October 2015

Manager Insists Town Must Now Bounce Back

“He has a tight hamstring after the game tonight which is worrying because he is an important player for us," said Micky.

"We are trying to look on the bright side though and hoping he won’t be out for long with it.”

Although Micky hopes the injury won't keep the Scotsman out for long.

Midfielder Ian Black was forced off in the second half with a tight hamstring injury.
“It is frustrating but this is where you have to show character and bounce back. We have to have spirit and fight to turn it round.

"The lads couldn’t give us and for that we are disappointed not to come out of the game with something. We can add to this performance and improve in the future.”

"I don’t think we are far away from getting wins. All the games we have lost have been on a knife edge and we were close to getting a result (against Doncaster)."

“We had a lot of good chances and were unfortunate that a couple didn’t go in. We had many opportunities to add to the score-line but it just wasn’t to be.

"You want to perform well at home but it was a tight, tense and nervy game, and you could see both teams were in need of the three points and neither wanted to lose.”

“We are disappointed to lose so late on," said Micky.

"It just adds to the frustration at the minute.

“There was nothing more the players could give to me. They gave it a right good go to turn our fortunes around and I couldn’t ask for anymore.

"We could have done a few things better but overall I was satisfied and we will keep fighting.”

And Micky believes his side have enough spirit and fight within the camp to turn their fortunes around.

Goals from James Coppinger and Keshi Anderson gave the visitors all three points in the Sky Bet League 1 clash, despite Nathaniel Knight-Percival equalising for Town and Matt Tootle seeing a headed goal ruled out for offside.

Manager Micky Mellon insists Shrewsbury Town must now show character and bounce back following the 2-1 defeat at home to Doncaster Rovers.
