Sean Goss reflects on Town's FA Cup third-round clash with Bristol City.
Shrewsbury Town’s third-round FA Cup fixture with Bristol City ended with Town earning an away draw.
Despite going a goal down, Sam Ricketts’ men secured an equaliser in the second-half to earn a replay fixture at the Montgomery Waters Meadow against the Sky Bet Championship outfit.
Town midfielder Sean Goss was pleased with the Shrews’ performance and was delighted to have notched an equalising goal to earn a home replay.
“I think we deserved to go on and win the game; we had a lot of chances,” said Goss. “We played really well, dominated large spells in the game and a draw is the least we deserved.
“It was a good goal and I had a couple of chances in the first-half. The ball dropped to me just outside the box and I went for placement. I am very happy that it went in. There were a lot of bodies in the way so I tried to use them and curl it into the bottom corner.
“We won the ball back in really good areas and we had a few chances. We are disappointed that we aren’t already in the neat round. We want to be playing teams like this every week; we have all said it in the changing room.
“We feel we are good enough to be playing against these teams and I think we showed that. They are a top team, a top club and we have come here and shown what we can do.”
Goss is looking forward to the return fixture at the Montgomery Waters Meadow and but admits all focus is on Town’s league fixture with Doncaster.
“The FA Cup is a special competition and we want to do well in it,” said the midfielder. “We will be at the Meadow trying to get into the next round.
“My goal was long overdue, it’s the longest I’ve ever gone without a goal. Hopefully, now I can keep adding to my game. We have league games to focus on now.
“We won’t be thinking about the replay, all of our focus will be on recovering and getting a result against Doncaster. We have a couple of games in hand on other teams, so if you win a couple you can bounce straight back up there.”
