Danny Coyne post Salford City

21 November 2018

Danny Coyne reflects on Town's 3-1 away win over Salford City.

Shrewsbury Town ventured to the Peninsula Stadium to take on Salford City in the FA Cup first-round replay.

Town were on the right end of a 3-1 score line, with goals coming from Fejiri Okenabirhie and Greg Docherty.

Town’s Goalkeeper Coach Danny Coyne was pleased with the performance and equally pleased his team’s effort.

“They gave everything again as you saw at the end,” Danny said. “Some of them left their legs out there today.

“I thought in the first-half we didn’t press them like we wanted to, we didn’t have the energy that we had on Saturday.

“When you look at the chances we created – we could have been three or four up. It was positive in that respect.

“We limited them to few chances. It was just a hard fought win in the end when you look back at it overall.”

Danny Coyne feels his side did well to cope with the home sides resilient pressure in the second half.

“They had a charge after making a couple of substitutions,” said Danny. “They had nothing to lose when they were two nil down.

“They got their goal and it got a bit hairy in there at times, but the lads dug in.

“We made a couple of substitutions forcibly because a couple of the lads were feeling little knocks.

“The lads have character. They came from a goal down to win on Saturday – they are a good group of lads.

“It’s a great dressing room and it showed tonight. To get that third goal at the end gives you that little bit of relief.

“They had another charge up the other end and hit the bar. It could have been a different story.

“All in all I am made up we got through to the next round with a home tie.

“We will assess all the lads tomorrow and on Friday and look forward to the weekend.”
