Sean Goss post Portsmouth

16 February 2020

Sean Goss reflects on Town's 2-0 loss to Portsmouth.

Shrewsbury Town’s afternoon in Portsmouth ended in disappointment as Kenny Jackett’s Pompey ran out 2-0 winners in Town's latest Sky Bet League One fixture.

Goals from Ellis Harrison and John Marquis were ultimately the difference between the two sides as all three points remained at Fratton Park.

Shrews midfielder Sean Goss was disappointed with the result and feels Town need to be more clinical in the final-third.

“It’s so frustrating,” said Sean. “I thought we were solid in the first-half and were catching them on the break. We had chances from set-pieces as well. The lads are all frustrated because we deserved more.

“We are frustrated that we couldn’t get the goal, and in the end, it has cost us. We worked so hard to keep it tight for an hour and then one cross meant we were chasing the game. “We need to cut that out and get the first goal. It just doesn’t seem to be falling for us at the minute. We are a tight group of lads and we are sticking together - everyone is sticking together as a team.

“We just need that bit of luck at the moment for one or two to go our way. You have to be prepared for anything in football. We could turn this around and have a number of wins on the spin.

“The lads are sticking together and we are all working hard to turn this around as soon as possible. We have a full week, which will be good for us to have some good training time. It will be good for the lads to have a full week ahead of the next game.

“There is so much belief in the squad and we have the ability, we are just on one of those runs. The sooner we turn it around the better really.”

Town next welcome Doncaster Rovers to the Montgomery Waters Meadow for another Sky Bet League One fixture.
