Docherty reflects on his Team’s 1-1 draw against Portsmouth.
Shrewsbury Town midfielder Greg Docherty was disappointed to leave Fratton Park without all three points. He scored the opener after coming on as a substitute to give Town the much needed goal.
“Yes of course we are frustrated, all things considered we come here they’re doing well at the moment, they’re unbeaten and not conceded a goal, but to put in a performance like we did today and come away with a point we are bitterly disappointed.”
“Being on the sidelines is frustrating I want to be a part of it but watching the boys you can’t fault them, their effort was second to none, that’s what makes it so tough”
Docherty was thrilled to have an impact on the game. “Yes of course I want to come on and make an impact. I don’t want to be sitting on the bench. It’s been frustrating watching the last game or two, I wanted to come on and show that I should be on the pitch, hopefully I’ve done that and I’m put in the thoughts for next week.”
“I had a lot of time to think about the goal, the ball just seemed to take for ages to drop but now looking back on it, it was over in an instant. The defender made a mistake and I gambled and I’m glad it paid off.”
“I thought the penalty was soft and with a big crowd behind the referee they will appeal for everything but that’s what all home fans do.”
“We are passing teams off of the park at times and we should be much further up the table, but it’s a result business and we need to get wins.”
“It’s difficult when you’re not getting the results but playing well, you’re putting the effort in and covering the ground and fighting for each other, but it comes down to wins.”
