Town faced Northampton away at Sixfields stadium last evening but couldn’t extend the run to a record six consecutive away game wins. A second half volley from Jon Nolan gave Town another important point for the Shrews.
Club captain, Mat Sadler admits he is disappointed his team didn’t get all three points, despite the good vain of form Town are in away from home, Sadler said: “The overriding feeling is obviously one of disappointment, we conceded right before half time and that’s a really bad time, that gave them something to cling on to.
“On the face of it, it’s an away point and you always know the run of wins is going to come to an end at some point.”
Although, Sadler was pleased his team managed to bounce back from going a goal down, he said: “I think we all felt we could come here and win the game and we’re disappointed to have not done that.
“But we have kept the tally kicking over and that’s the positives, there was a few negatives with the sending off but we showed character again to come back having gone one nil down.
“We felt like we were going to get that second, Omar had a really good chance in the 88th minute, if that goes in you start to think we have seen off another away day.
“But we take the point, lick our wounds and we go again for what now is an even bigger game on Saturday.”
Town next face Wimbledon at home at the Montgomery Waters Meadow on Saturday, Sadler outlined the importance of the game: “It doesn’t get any easier, another team there who are down there, they’ll be coming to our place looking to get the three points, like every team does.
“It will be another real, real battle. It’s important between now and then, that we come together as we have done all season as a group. We dust our selves down after tonight, we go again into what is a really big game for us now, one that we are all looking forward to.”
