Shaun Whalley gives his thoughts on Town's 2-2 draw with Accrington Stanley.
Shrewsbury Town earned a point at Montgomery Waters Meadow after a 2-2 draw with Accrington Stanley.
Aaron Pierre and Shaun Whalley were the two Salopians on hand to ensure Town took a point from the game as Salop netted in each half.
Shaun was delighted to get on the score sheet but was left frustrated that his team didn't secure all three points against Stanley.
On the performance of the team:
“It was very disappointing to concede last minute. In the first half, we took a while to get going but in the second half we were by far the better team. We had high energy and deserved to win the game.
“We have to move on and get ready for Charlton this Saturday and get this game behind us. The new Manager has clearly got us going and you could definitely see that in the second half and I am really looking forward to working with him.
“The Manager has come in and done a lot of work with us. He has had two games close together and I’m sure he will implement his style as time goes on. With fans here, it was important to get an equaliser quickly. We built on that really well into the second half."
On his goal, his recent 200 game milestone and how he felt he played:
“It was a good goal but I am more focusing on the goal we conceded. The way the wall was set up, I thought I could get it round the wall and that’s what I did - luckily it went in.
“I want to stay at Shrewsbury for as long as I can. I feel fit and I have been playing some of my best stuff this season, I love scoring goals and I just want to keep doing the best I can."
On having the home fans back in the stadium:
“It was brilliant. When I scored, it normally would have been less exciting, but it felt like a normal game even with two thousand here and I hope they enjoyed the performance if not for the result at the end.
“It was nice to celebrate with the fans after the goals - we have missed that."
