Shaun Whalley Post MK Dons

Whalley talks to the Press after scoring the equaliser against MK Dons

Shrewsbury Town Winger Shaun Whalley admits that he doesn’t think he has scored many better goals than his equaliser against MK Dons on Saturday.

Whalley took his tally to seven for the season with a 30 yard screamer, which rescued a point for Paul Hurst’s side.

Whalley believes he may have scored better goals in non-league, but this is his best in League One.

“It was a glorious sight”, admitted Shaun

“As soon as I hit it I knew it was flying in the top corner and I was delighted to get the goal back and to push for the winner, but it wasn't to be and we've come away with a point, which I think was fully deserved.

“I put in the programme a few weeks ago that my best goal was away at Gateshead for Southport and the ref today was actually the ref in that game as well and he said it wasn't as good as the Gateshead goal, so I will let him be the judge.

“I've scored a few belter goals but not at this level, so I would say it was right up there with my best.”

MK Dons took the lead after 55 minutes, but Shaun always felt that Town would get at least a point.

“We wanted to come here and win today, make no mistake about that”, said Whalley.

“We tried our best to get the win but once we fell behind we had to work hard to get back in it and fortunately we managed to get back in it and pushed for the winner, but it wasn't to be, so I will take the point.

“I thought it was quite a scrappy game if I'm honest. I was getting frustrated and it just felt like it was breaking up all the time for both teams.

“No one really had control of the game of the game, but I thought we worked really hard in the first half and we were closing them down, but they were closing us down as well, which in turn made it a scrappy game.

“We went behind and I felt it was a bit of a soft goal to concede, but I felt that there was only going to be one team that would win it after the equaliser.”
