Bryn Morris post Chesterfield

Bryn's thoughts after the 1-1 draw away to Chesterfield

Shrewsbury Town earnt a hard fought point at Chesterfield on Saturday as they drew 1-1.

West Brom loanee Tyler Roberts opened the scoring for Town in just the second minute before the Spireites skipper Ian Evatt on the brink of half time.

Bryn Morris made his fourth appearance in the centre of the park since arriving from Middlesbrough in January and he spoke to the press after the match.

“We’ve got to be more clinical,” Morris said.

“We had chances in the first half - that on another day – we’d put them in. After a good start I think we took our foot off the gas a bit – we should’ve gone again to get a second to kill them off.

“Their goal killed our momentum a little bit – I felt we just needed to get in to half time without conceding and regroup.

“In the second half we went again and once we’d sorted the problem in midfield where one of us went in on their defence and one stopped them getting out – it got us on the front foot more and we were much better – it was just frustrating not to get another goal.”

The former Boro man has impressed in midfield since coming into the side in place of Abu Ogogo following the latter’s injury but he was keen to praise Louis Dodds and Stephen Humphrys who entered the fray with 10 minutes left.

“They changed the game for us – gave us a bit of a spark,” he said.

“On another day they’d have scored – Steve probably could have squared one or two – but he’s a striker so he wants to score goals himself.

“Towards the end I was feeling it in my legs – I started cramping up a tiny bit – but on a personal note it was good to get my first full start.

“Everyone’s fighting for positions – it’s not just match days – you’ve got to give your all in training and then try to impress on the Saturday.

“But for the team it was frustrating not to get the win because I think they were there for the taking.”

The draw meant Town remained in 18th place in League One – five points clear of the drop zone ahead of a crucial tie with Port Vale next Friday night.

“We take every game as it comes and we’re looking for three points in every game we play in.

“The Gaffer said to us in training the club’s hasn’t had a higher position than 16th in this league so that’s our goal.”
