Omar Beckles Post Rochdale AFC

10 March 2019

Omar Beckles reflects on Town's loss to Rochdale AFC.

Shrewsbury Town were unable to extend their unbeaten run against Rochdale AFC.

Despite pulling a late goal back through Greg Docherty, Town were unable to take anything away from the game.

Omar Beckles was disappointed with the result and feels his team should perform better.

“We showed a bit of resilience in the last few games but gifted them two goals today,” said Omar after the tie.

“It’s obviously very disappointing for our run to come to an end the manner in which it did makes it worse.

“We work hard on making sure we don’t concede from set pieces, so today is disappointing.

“I think we showed we still have that fighting spirit and we were pushing and pushing to get a goal.

“It didn’t look like it was going to be our day to get a goal but we did. We could have got a second.

“Conceding two goals like we did gave us a mountain to climb, so hopefully we can build from a better foundation.

“At the end of the day, as footballers we just want to be winning games and putting in good performances.

“It’s safe to say that today was below par from us but we will learn from this.”

Omar is looking forward to the tie against Plymouth Argyle and hopes to see his team respond with a win.

“There is still 10 games to go and a lot can change,” said the defender. “We are confident we can climb up the table.

“The boys are raring to go against Plymouth. They aren’t a team to be taken lightly at all.

“They are in good form but we are looking to go there and bounce back with a win.

“This is League One football. Even if you are in the middle of the table you aren’t safe.

“It’s so tight and a lot can change. It’s not time to be panicking, it’s time to be sticking together and hoping we can head in the right direction.”
