David Davis reflects on Salop’s home win over Cheltenham Town.
Shrewsbury Town beat the visitors 3-1 at Montgomery Waters Meadow on Saturday afternoon, and Davis netted the third and final goal.
It was Davis’ first goal of his second stint at the club and his first goal in four years. He last scored against Sheffield Wednesday for Birmingham City during the 2017/18 season but said he was pleased to break the duck.
On his goal:
“It was unlike me, a bit of a nosebleed moment! But I’m glad that I could be a bit composed and settle us down a little bit with the two-goal advantage, but it’s not over, there were still 20 odd minutes to go, but we still had to be disciplined and work hard because they still had chances. It was great to get the goal and it was nice to finally get my first goal for the club since re-joining, but, more importantly, the three points.
On the performance:
“It was great. Obviously going down to ten men wasn’t ideal but I thought we started the game brightly then they got on top for a little bit and we went down to ten men and obviously we went in at half-time, stuck to a game plan and it worked for us.
“I think losing last time to them again with ten men was gutting for us and obviously going down to ten men is a bit of a blow but you’ve got to dust yourself off and those are the cards you’ve been dealt but we stuck to the game plan and did well.
On Salop’s form:
“The home form is great but something we need to address quickly is our away form which we know has not been good enough. If we can address that then there’s no reason we can’t climb up the league but today has given us a great platform and we go to Fleetwood feeling confident.”
