David Edwards reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One loss against Bristol Rovers.

Shrewsbury Town's clash with Bristol Rovers ended in defeat as the home side secured a 2-1 win at the Memorial Stadium.

Despite a late goal from Daniel Udoh, Town were unable to find the equaliser and the home side held on to claim all three points.

Town midfielder David Edwards was frustrated with the result and felt Town uncharacteristically underperformed against the home side.

On the result:

"We didn't deserve anything from our performance. It was a performance that was very unlike us, especially since the Manager has taken over. It's not often that we haven't matched the opposition. Today, Bristol Rovers played with a better intensity than us and we couldn't match that.

"I don't think we deserved anything from the game but we did show a little bit of fight towards the end in getting that goal back. We probably should have got a draw in injury time with that chance I had. In football. there can be so many reasons why you aren't at the races.

"Bristol Rovers have a new manager and they were always going to be up for it. For whatever reason, with 50-50's, we were a yard late - they were always on the front foot. Once they got the goal before half-time, it was critical and we couldn't get back into it.

"Since the manager has been in charge, we have done well to bounce back from defeat - we have to do that now on Tuesday night. It's also important that when the lads from the bench have a chance to come on, they need to contribute.

"We have a great set of lads here and we all want the club to do well. When we get chances, we need to come on and make a difference - we did that a little bit today but not enough."
