Shaun Whalley reflects on Town's 1-1 draw with Bristol Rovers.
Shrewsbury Town battled it out with Bristol Rovers to earn a point at the Rovers’ Memorial Stadium.
Shaun Whalley’s first-half goal wasn’t enough to see Town take all three points from their trip on the road.
Shaun was pleased his team managed to take at least a point away from the game.
“I think a point away from home is always a good point,” said Shaun. “With where we are in the table we need to pick up points.
“We picked one up today and we have to get on with it and concentrate on the next one.
“I have been watching the games but haven’t been involved and I thought first-half the lads were unbelievable.
“Everyone was working hard for each other and closing people down. We had bits of quality as well and our play was very good first-half.
“We conceded off a set piece which is disappointing, but it happens. We carried on trying to play our game.
“We had to dig in and going down to 10 men made it even harder.”
Shaun was pleased to be back in the starting 11 and hopes to help his team more in the coming games.
“I was overjoyed to be honest with the goal,” said the winger. “It was great link-up play by Josh.
“It took a little deflection and went in, but I was more made up that it gave us a good start and the lead.
“We didn’t hold on, but we will take this point and move on to the next one.
“Rodman is a great player and a great lad. I didn’t enjoy him scoring but fair play to him – it was a good header.
“I’d like to see us move up the table and out the relegation zone. We will take each game as it comes.”
