Greg Docherty post Sunderland

21 October 2018

Greg Docherty reflects on Town's loss to Sunderland.

Shrewsbury Town lost out this weekend in their Sky Bet League One fixture with Sunderland.

The Black Cats came to the Montgomery Waters Meadow and managed to notch two goals against Town to give their side all three points on the road.

Town midfielder Greg Docherty was disappointed with the result and felt his team could have taken more from the game.

“We were pushing for a goal and they went up the other end of the pitch and got the second,” Docherty said.

“It was difficult for us. We were pushing and the luck has fell to them and maybe knocked us for six for five or 10 minutes.

“We had more than enough to get back into the game if we just tightened up in the final third – we should have created more chances.

“It was a physical game, there was a lot of hard tackles, but there was some nice stuff played as well.

“Once it settles down we will realise we played some nice stuff, but we can’t keep doing that and not do the basics and that cost us.”

Docherty also felt a number of chances fell his team’s way and they could have done more in the final third.

“We had a few headers,” said Docherty. “Maybe in a few areas we could have passed or done better with the final execution.

“Again, it’s one of those things. We are bitterly disappointed to come away with nothing today.

“Minimum we should have come away with a point and it should have been 0-0.

“It was an exciting game and exciting to play in, but I’m just really disappointed for all of the fans.

“When we conceded the second goal they were deflated - it’s not nice. You want to put on a show for them, but sometimes things don’t go your way.

“We have just got to keep working hard and give 100% - that’s what is required.”
