Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley.

Shrewsbury Town's unbeaten run continued as Salop secured a point on the road against John Coleman's Accrington Stanley.

Despite going a goal down, Shaun Whalley was on hand to notch a late goal to ensure Salop took a point home back to Shropshire.

Town Assistant Manager Aaron Wilbraham was pleased with the point but admitted the Salop squad were frustrated to not have secured the win.

On the result:

"It's a good point but we are a little bit frustrated that we didn't take all three. The lads stood up to the conditions really well and were very disciplined. We knew that we would have the conditions in our favour in the second half. In the second, we took the game to them and we created chances

"We were disappointed to go a goal down because that meant we were chasing the game. They got a lift from their goal and it took us a while to adapt. We managed to show great character again to get back into the game with another good goal.

"It shows how far the lads have come because we are disappointed that we didn't get the win. In the end, it is a good point. In terms of the conditions, it was some of the worst wind I've seen. We dealt with things really well.

"Accrington have been on a really good run so we knew it was going to be tough. The lads stood up to the test really well and we showed character to keep that unbeaten run going. The way the lads work, and how hard they work for each other is unbelievable."

On Shaun Whalley's goal:

"Shaun deserved that goal for all of the hard work he puts in. The Manager just said that to him and he's right. he runs his socks off every game. It was a proper team performance."
