Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's draw with Gillingham

Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's hard-fought point on the road against Gillingham.

Shrewsbury Town's trip to Priestfield ended with Town earning a hard-fought point against Steve Evan's Gillingham.

Despite both teams looking dangerous in the opposition box, neither were able to find the breakthrough in the final third as the points were shared.

Town Assistant Manager Aaron Wilbraham was pleased with the Salop performance but feels the Shrews could have done more to secure all three points.

On the result:

"The lads put in a good performance and we were happy with that. We dominated the first-half, created a lot of chances and had a lot of possession. I thought we were unlucky not to have gone in at the break with the lead.

"It was nice to get the clean sheet. We always want to build and create chances, the defenders give us that opportunity for us to feel confident going forward - we were unlucky to not have scored today.

"We worked on dealing with their threats earlier in the week and I thought we did that really well. A lot of teams have come here and have been outdone by their style of play but I thought we dealt with that really well.

"We were really organised and you could see that from minute one. When we had the ball, we tried to settle and play good football. We probably did those things better in the first-half. We had a lot of chances and quite a few corners, it just didn't seem to drop for us in the box. We are always getting into good areas and trying to score - that's the main thing."
