Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One win over MK Dons.

Shrewsbury Town's Sky Bet League One fixture with MK Dons ended with Salop ensuring all three points remained in Shropshire.

Goals from Sean Goss, Ollie Norburn, and Curtis Main were the difference between the two sides as the Shrews built on their point in the last league fixture.

Town's Assistant Manager, Aaron Wilbraham, was delighted with the win and felt clinical finishing was key in the Town victory.

On the result:

"It was a great team performance and the gameplan worked. The Gaffer gives us the detail for the game plan and we all worked hard to make it work. The boys' work-rate, discipline and decision-making were perfect. We caught them out a lot of times and could have had more goals. Everyone worked hard for each other and the togetherness was there yet again.

"Going into the lead early can be difficult and it's a strange position to be in that early. We managed the game really well but we are unhappy with the goals we conceded - the Manager touched on that after the game. We controlled the game for long periods.

"MK try to dominate possession and make you do a lot of running but we knew we would have chances if we stuck to the game plan. We backed each other up on the counter-attack and the game plan worked really well."

On the goals:

"Sean Goss has great quality and he makes us play when he gets on the ball. He always finds the cutting edge pass and getting two goals was great for him and for the team. 

"I don't think it's a bad idea to have two penalty takers when they come so close together like that. Norburn stuck the first one away and he gave the second to Curtis. He works so hard for the team, he's great up top but he wanted to get on the score sheet.

"When we got the second, Norbs asked if Curtis could take the second. We left that decision up to the boys and it was a great choice from our captain. It was a great idea and it put us 3-0 up. Curtis has done enough off the ball and with his assists to deserve a goal.

"It's always nice to get off the mark, you don't want to be waiting too long as a striker. That gets him off the mark and gets him going."

Update on Donald Love:

"He had a tight groin so we will have to assess him during the week -we didn't want to take any risks."
