Danny Coyne post Scunthorpe

2 December 2018

Danny Coyne reflects on Town's 1-0 win over Scunthorpe United.

Shrewsbury Town secured a 1-0 win against Scunthorpe United in the FA Cup second-round.

Town managed to secure the win with a goal from Aaron Amadi-Holloway and a late penalty save by Steve Arnold.

Danny Coyne was pleased to have secured the win that sees Town go into the third-round.

“It was a brilliant team performance,” Coyne said. “We were resolute and they were battling for everything.

“They worked hard for each other - going forward and whilst defending.

“As a team and an overall performance together, they just had a togetherness on the pitch at both ends.

“To not give up anything towards the end of the game as well and to close it out was great to see.

“Aaron’s strike was great. We have been saying to him for a long time to just shoot. He was a centre-back growing up so his natural thought is to lay it off to someone else.

“We told him when he’s facing the goal he needs to hit it, because he has a heck of a strike on him.”

Danny was also delighted for Steve Arnold who made a late penalty save to keep Town’s lead intact.

“Everybody in the whole stadium was bemused at why he gave the penalty,” Coyne continued.

“Steve popped up with a great save. Him and Phil Smart have done their homework and they go through everything.

“Credit to all of them for that. All the lads are buzzing for Steve, he’s a great lad and he works so hard.

“He came in the dressing room and all the lads jumped on him and were screaming his name – which is great.

“The team spirit that the lads have got now is getting better and better. We just want to keep that going.”

The FA Cup draw will be tomorrow evening at 7pm live on the BBC.
