Greg Docherty Post Oxford United

23 April 2019

Greg Docherty reflects on Town's loss to Oxford United.

Shrewsbury Town were unable to secure a win last time out after falling short against Oxford United.

The Shrews took the lead through Greg Docherty and Ollie Norburn but were unable to prevent Gavin Whyte from netting three goals for the U’s.

Greg Docherty was disappointed with the result and was left frustrated that his team couldn’t hold on to the lead.

“This one is extremely tough to take,” said the midfielder. “As players we need to suck it up and take the criticism.

“This result hurts but it can only spur us on to go and rectify it. We win as a team and we lose as a team.

“We need to bounce back on Sunday. This game summed up how in English football things can change so quickly.

“As soon as you think you’re in control, that little bit of complacency kicks in and you get punished.

“That has been the story of our season. There has been so many games that we haven’t seen out.

“Today results probably went our way, which is good, but it could have been over the line. There is no reason why in the next game this can’t be rectified.”

Despite reaching his 10th goal of the season Greg feels bitterly disappointed with the result and hopes to see his team get over the line in the next fixture.

“It means nothing at the moment,” said Greg. “Until we are over the line I won’t talk about me personally.

“We are a team and if I can contribute it’s great but ultimately it wasn’t enough and we shot ourselves in the foot.

“Everyone is extremely disappointed. When we went 2-1 up everyone thought today is our chance.

“We are still here fighting but good football doesn’t get you results sometimes. We need to dig in and fight next week.

“It was a huge opportunity for us today and we really let ourselves down.”
