Sam Ricketts post Peterborough

15 December 2018

Sam Ricketts reflects on Town's 2-2 draw with Peterborough United.

Shrewsbury Town managed to earn a point against an in-form Peterborough United.

Town would have been disappointed not to take all three points after a late equaliser from the visitors.

Sam Ricketts was disappointed to not have taken all three points but was happy to have taken a point away from a good side.

“To concede in injury time is bitterly disappointing,” said Sam. “The way of the goal even more so.

“Was it a corner? Highly, highly debatable. We can’t waste time arguing with the referee – we needed to deal with it.

“If he has given a corner then we need to react to that. Our first contact needs to be better.

“If we get the ball back out of the box, we go on to win the game.

“I am really disappointed, but overall if you look at it – it’s a good point against a side who are one of the best in the league.”

Sam was content with the team’s performance but still feels his side can improve and feels there is more to come from his team.

“It was ok,” the manager said. “I said to the boys it was ok at half-time and I wanted it to be better.

“We stepped it up a little bit in the second-half. We started to win the second balls, which then gave us a platform to go and play.

“We got into really good areas in the final-third – three, four or even five times. We just didn’t really make it count second-half.

“Ultimately, we have scored two and we have given two really poor goals away.

“We can’t afford to do that if we want to win games.”

Town’s next fixture is another home tie against Coventry City next Saturday.
