Rodders reflects on Valley Parade draw
Shrewsbury Town Midfielder Alex Rodman wasn’t too downbeat after last night’s 0-0 draw with Bradford City.
Town could have perhaps taken all three points but went down to 10-men with half-an-hour to go and in the end Rodman felt it was a decent point.
“It is another point and it’s not a loss”, said Alex.
“I think the main thing was the response after a huge disappointment on the weekend and I think we did that. It is a point on the board but we are still disappointed in that changing room because we felt we could come here and take three points, but we’ve got to keep fighting.
“It might be a big point come the end of the season, you never know. There’s a lot of football to be played and I certainly don’t see maximum points being achieved by the other two up there with us, so it will be interesting.
“We will take the positives. It was a difficult pitch, difficult conditions tonight against a team that don’t play a lot of football and it could be a big point.
Town were starting to get on top in the second-half and Alex believes the sending off for Omar Beckles knocked a bit of the stuffing out of them.
“It was a tough time that because I think we were creating chances and we were in the ascendancy definitely”, said Rodman.
“It put us on the back foot a little bit with losing that man. We perhaps could have gone on and won it, but it wasn’t to be, so we will take a point and we will go into another massive game next week.”
