Jan Zamburek reflects on Town's draw with Wigan Athletic

27 December 2020

Jan Zamburek reflects on Town's 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

Shrewsbury Town’s afternoon in Wigan ended with Steve Cotterill’s men earning a point on the road in Town's fourth consecutive away fixture.

A Latics goal from Will Keane via the penalty spot was later cancelled out by Shaun Whalley as his curling effort in the Wigan box secured Town a point away from home.

Town midfielder Jan Zamburek was pleased Town earned a point against the home side and was delighted to have contributed to the team with an assist.

On the result:

"I felt it wasn't an easy game. We had to challenge for a lot of second balls and they have some good players - it was definitely tough. I felt like we were the better team for most of the game.

"We were just unlucky that we gave away a penalty. It's a good sign that we came back after conceding the penalty. In the end, we did have some chances to win the game.

"I am just happy that I could play the game and even happier to have got the assist. Shaun Whalley is a great player and he shows that in training. It's a pleasure to play with him.

"We are moving in the right direction. We are better defensively and going forward. I am happy that I got the chance to play and I'm happy I could help the team.

"I knew two days ago I was going to play and I was happy. For me, it was like a Christmas present. The position I played today suits me well. I will keep working hard, and if I get the chance, I will give it my best."
