Callum Mckenzie focuses on the positives that the young Shrews can take from their 3-1 defeat to Tranmere Rovers
Town suffered their first home defeat of the season going down 3-1 to a Tranmere side who took their chances in a game that could, despite the result, have gone either way.
Charlie Catton and substitute Luke ward both had chances to score but it wasn’t to be on a frustrating afternoon.
Development coach, Mckenzie said; “We have had a couple of really good chances. We hit the post and the crossbar, we had a couple cleared off the line, it wasn’t our day in front of goal”.
Mckenzie reflected on the opportunities his side created in a positive manner, he said; “If we had lost the game today and not really created, we would have been more concerned.
“There were good chances from open play, and I think our set pieces were as good as they have been in the last 18 months. We had four or five good chances created from our corners”.
Development is key for the U-18’s and McKenzie hopes that his team can grow from this defeat, he said; “I hope they can learn from this, it is all part of their development and hopefully they will come out next week better”.
It is a busy week for all involved with the club as several members of the team will be involved in the U-23 game away at Scunthorpe next Saturday, before they make the long trip to Carlisle on Friday.
McKenzie is positive that the team will have a good week in training leading into their next game against Carlisle.
