Mat Sadler reflects on Town's 3-2 loss to Wycombe Wanderers

Shrewsbury Town were unable to keep the winning run going against Wycombe Wanderers this afternoon.

The home side took all three points with a 3-2 scoreline over Danny Coyne’s team.

Mat was disappointed with the result considering Town took an early lead in the game. 

"Going one-nil up you're thinking right, you know they're going to have a little bit of a go, they've been a very good team here, they take a lot of points off people here. 

"All be it I don't think we started that well, we knew that we were going to face a barrage. We're disappointed to concede two set-piece goals, which will be something to look at for sure and then you give yourself a hell of a task to get back into the game. 

"There were little defining moments in the game, Luke's header hits the post at 2-1, you then go into half-time at 2-2 which maybe changes the complex of the game.

"We're frustrated because we feel like we've got something going here. It feels a good group of people and a good group of players. It's full of people who really want to work and fight and win games for the football club, that's what it feels like. 

"I think the key message from this today is ok dust ourselves down. We didn't win as we would have wanted, however, there's a hell of a game on Tuesday night." 

Sadler felt that his side wasn't able to give the service to the two front men as he would have liked. 

"Yes frustrating for me in that we probably didn't give them the service that they would have wanted throughout the game. We didn't really get them in positions stretching their back four in the way they did to us. 

"It was two diamonds out there, they matched us up which says something about how we're playing at the moment. 

"We're trying to put pride into the shirt, I think that's evident and the fans can see that. " 

Mat pointed out how happy he was with Danny and Eric's work in the last couple of weeks. 

"I love both of them, they're fantastic people, fantastic men, I couldn't sing Danny's praises highly enough. He's got the respect of everybody and every person at the football club when he speaks you very much to listen. You can see he respects us as a group. 

"Eric's attention to detail is something I've not seen before, his manner is fantastic, and they're two very good guys. The overriding thing in that dressing room is that we wanted to win for the group. We see them as part of the group we want to do well for and for me and the lads that stretches into Tuesday night, We want to put it right for them. 

"There's very much a togetherness about the whole place which is something those two have done."
