Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's loss against Doncaster Rovers

Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One defeat at the hands of Doncaster Rovers.

Shrewsbury Town welcomed Doncaster Rovers to Montgomery Waters Meadow this weekend for Town's latest Sky Bet League One fixture.

Despite creating a plethora of chances in the fixture, it was the away side who capitalised and took a two-goal win home.

Town Assistant Manager Aaron Wilbraham was disappointed with the result and feels Town should have done more to convert chances into goals.

On the result:

"I thought we were decent in the first-half and you can't legislate for Ethan slipping over - he was just unlucky. They got the first goal against the run of play, similar to Tuesday. We just couldn't get the ball into the back of the net. Balls dropped to us and we were slashing at them a little bit.

"I think we had the better of the play and we were unlucky to go in a goal down. In the second, it was more of the same message because we didn't want the goal conceded to affect us. We wanted to drive the game on but we couldn't get going. We didn't really get out of the traps as we usually would do.

"The second goal took the wind out of our sails and we struggled to get back into the game after that. You don't want to make mistakes. Ethan just lost his footing and there isn't anything you can do about that - it was a good finish in the end. Giving goals away doesn't give us a platform to get a foothold in the game.

"With the change at half-time, the Gaffer just wanted Brad Walker to step in with the ball more and he was finding good passes into dangerous areas. He did that well and it was only a tactical change. For some reason, we just couldn't foothold in the game and they scored a breakaway goal."

On Charlie Caton's debut:

"Charlie has been doing really well in training whenever he's been with us - he deserved his chance. He is a good finisher and he deserved some minutes. He didn't have too much time on the pitch but he competed well. He's definitely one for the future."
