Abu Ogogo Post Gillingham

21 February 2018

Skipper looks back on Gillingham game

Abu Ogogo scored his first goal for nearly two years for the Town against Gillingham but the player felt disappointed his team didn’t take all three points after losing out to a late equaliser.

When asked how he feels about the result Ogogo said: “Disappointed, conceded another poor goal, again, and we should have won the game so we’re disappointed.

“Performance wise, I thought we were the better team first half, they started the second half well.

“It was a better performance than on Saturday but it’s more about results at this stage of the season and getting the wins and we should have got one today.”

Due to illness within the squad, Paul Hurst was forced to change his teams set up, Ogogo feels the new formation complimented his game: “It was good, I felt I had more options when I got on the ball, Shaun and Nathan had little pockets”

The Shrews captain scored his first goal since 2016 in the game and admits he felt he was going to score: “I said to the boys before the game I was going to score.

“I’ve had a couple of shots in the last few games and I was getting closer and I had a feeling I was going to score.

“It is nice but it would have been better to get the three points.

“I had a feeling Shaun was going to cut the ball back and I just beat my man to the ball and just side footed it in.”

Although the Shrews centre midfielder scored, he admitted he is still disappointed at the end result: “It feels like a defeat tonight, the last couple of games we have gone one nil up and thrown it away.

“Its not like the other team have worked hard for the goals, we’re just making mistakes which is frustrating.”

Town face Charlton away from home in the next league fixture and Abu feels it’s a key opportunity to bounce back and get three points: “Nice ground, big club, it’s going to be a tough game. Like every game in this league is but it’s a game to look forward to.

“We’re doing well away from home at the minute so hopefully we can come back with the three points.”
