Jayson Leutwiler post Colchester United

29 February 2016

Keeper pleased with clean sheet on the road

Jayson Leutwiler was pleased with a clean sheet at Colchester despite feeling the team could have played better:

“We came here to win but I don’t think it is a bad point. It was important not to lose against a team around us so away from home we are happy with a point. I think we did well defensively and got another clean sheet so that is encouraging. The strikers struggled today but I am sure they will score next week.”

“We are a bit disappointed in the dressing room but we know there are a lot of games to play for us to lift ourselves out of relegation. We are not happy where we are in the league and we are desperate to move away from the drop zone. I thought we could have played a little better today but I am pleased with our defence.”

The 26-year-old did not think the Manchester United game was a difficult distraction and the goalkeeper gave credit to the defence who earned another clean sheet:

“It was not hard for me to get back focused on this game after Manchester United. Our league position is the most important thing and it is the reality and we are always motivated in every game we play. I think we were a bit tired but we have to give credit to Colchester because they played well too. Both teams had spells in the game but couldn’t capitalise.”

 “It makes my job easier when the defence is strong and hopefully we can keep that up for the rest of the season. Every goal will count from now until the end so we need to concede as little as possible.”

The former Basel stopper is hopeful Shrewsbury can get the win when Rochdale make the visit to Shropshire on Tuesday:

“We want to give the fans a win because they deserve that. It will be hard to beat Rochdale and we know that but we will give everything to try and get the three points.”
