Gaffer reflects on his sides 2-0 win over Morecambe
“It was a nice moment in the game because it’s not often that a goalkeeper gets credit from such a significant moment, but to have made the first save and a second save, I think it was crucial in us getting the win.
“From that point onwards we looked in control, we played with another level of intensity on the back of that so it was great for Jack. I’m really pleased for him.”
In the first half, there was a particularly controversial tackle on Shrewsbury’s Kian Taylor, and Eric shared his views on some of the other incidences in the game:
“It was one of those games where there were a couple of incidences that were probably a bit unsavoury. It’s never to our advantage to be in the game like that from point of view.
“So the message is always for the players to control themselves and to conduct themselves in the right way and to make sure to focus on what we’re doing, particularly in possession of a game like that.
“I think it was borderline at points but it never crossed the line.”
Next up for Shrewsbury U18’s is Wigan Athletic away, where they will be expecting the ‘toughest’ match of the season so far.
“I think that it’s the toughest game in this division so I’m expecting as difficult a game that we always have when we go up there. It’s always a close game so I know we’ll have to be right at our best if we’re going to get anything from the game, but we certainly could do.
“I think all be it they’ve started the league undefeated and with an 100% record. I think depending on how they’ve got on today, I do feel like we go into it with a chance.”
