Steve Arnold looks back at Town's 0-0 draw with Fleetwood Town.

Shrewsbury Town took on Fleetwood Town yesterday afternoon and earned a point against the Cod Army.

Town made it two games undefeated and will look to build on that solid form going forward.

Steve Arnold was pleased with the efforts from the team and was happy to claim a clean sheet.

“It wasn’t a classic was it,” said Town’s shot stopper. “It’s a clean sheet at the end of the day.

“I think we defended really, really well. We do want the win at home and we do go for it.

“I think you could tell that we have had a tough two or three games in as many days – that showed at the end.

“To get a clean sheet is something to build on and we will go into the FA Cup game on a positive.

“The back four have been brilliant the last two games, they have been superb – especially at Sunderland.”

Steve feels he didn’t have much to do in the game and praised his defensive colleagues for their contribution.

“The defence have been quality for me as a back four and as a unit. It’s a clean sheet and we will take that.

“Games like this are mentally tiring because you have nothing to do for 20 minutes and then all of a sudden there is a ball in the box.

“You have to deal with it, so for me it’s about staying switched on and dealing with what happens.

“I think maybe at the end of the game we could have had a penalty, but those sort of things come and go.

“The main thing is we are creating chances and we have started to get clean sheets. There is stuff to build on going forward.

“I think we did alright today, but it just didn’t fall for us right in the box.”
