Luke Waterfall Post Scunthorpe

23 September 2018

Waterfall reflects on Town's 1-0 loss away to Scunthorpe United.

Shrewsbury Town fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Scunthorpe United on Saturday.

Askey’s men travelled to Glanford Park hoping to register back-to-back wins, but a 55th minute strike by Lee Novak won the game for The Iron.

Luke Waterfall was disappointed his team couldn’t secure another three points and gave his feeling post-match.

“Frustrated,” Waterfall said. “I thought we did pretty well first-half, but we just didn’t capitalise on that.

“We had one or two half chances first-half, but I think we started sloppy in the second-half. The first five or 10 minutes we didn’t come out of the blocks.

“They got on top and we never truly recovered I don’t think from that first five or 10 minutes of the second-half.

“It’s one of those that we cant put our finger on. We know how important the first five or 10 minutes of each half is.

“We knew with Scunthorpe being the home side they were going to come out and have a go. We should have been prepared for that and we have got to do better, we spoke about that in there, and I’m sure we will do.”

Waterfall was disappointed with the nature of the goal conceded and felt Town’s defence should have done more.

“Disappointed from our point of view,” Waterfall said post-match. “We feel like we should stop the cross or secondly deal with it as the ball comes in.

“It was a good ball in, but we have got to deal with it. If we had come away with a point I don’t think anyone would have grumbled with it and it would have been a good point here at Scunny.

“It wasn’t meant to be. We have got to dust ourselves down, train really hard next week and go really hard against Gillingham.”

Town have a chance to bounce back with a home fixture against Gillingham this coming Saturday.
