Ollie Norburn reflects on Town's 1-1 draw with Salford City.
Shrewsbury Town welcomed Salford City to the Montgomery Waters Meadow yesterday afternoon for the FA Cup first round.
Town and the Ammies finished the game level on the score sheet due to two first-half goals.
Goal scorer Ollie Norburn was disappointed not to get the win but feels Salford provided a stern test for him and his teammates.
“They have a lot of players with a lot of experience,” said the midfielder. “It was a tough game.
“We went ahead and should have seen it out for the next five minutes and we could have ended up controlling the game.
“They go up and score a goal, which put the pressure back on us.
“We are kind of disappointed but we have come away and we are still in the hat.
“We are looking to go to their place and win the game to get us into the next round.”
Norburn is looking forward to the reverse fixture and feels his side have enough to progress past the Ammies.
“I have never been there, but I have heard it’s a tough place to go,” Norburn said.
“We are going there knowing who we could be facing in the next round and hopefully we get that win.
“It’s just little things that are letting us down but they are obviously making a massive difference.
“I thought we were the better team. It was a very open game I felt and it could have swung either way with the openings.
“We were in charge of the game but we just couldn’t get that second goal.
“Hopefully we get through on Tuesday night and go into the game on Saturday and get a result.
“It’s a quick turn around and a chance to make things right.”
