Ethan Ebanks-Landell reflects on Town's 2-1 come-back victory over Sunderland AFC.

Shrewsbury Town once again recorded back-to-back wins with a 2-1 victory over Lee Johnson's Sunderland AFC at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Despite going a goal down, the Shrews battled back to earn a comeback victory with second half goals from Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Harry Chapman.

Ethan was delighted Town got the win and was pleased he was able to contribute to the win at the other end of the pitch.

On the Salop performance:

"It feels really good. We were disappointed to go down in the first half and it was a bit sloppy from our end. We kept going and we believed something would happen in the second half.

"I didn't even see my header go into the net. I chucked my head at the ball and luckily it went in. It's a well overdue goal, it has been a long time - hopefully that can start a good run for me.

"We have belief and real confidence within the squad. The Gaffer has instilled that in us, even though he's not here. We knew the goal would come at some point eventually.

"It was a great ball from Shaun for the second goal. You would never think Shaun is 33, he never stops running. Harry Chapman is in great form at the minute and it was a great finish.

"He had a similar chance earlier on and it went wide but he made great contact with his one - I'm happy for him. He has been very good for us. I was with him at Sheffield United and with age, he's looking even better."

On the Salop Defence:

"It was a whole team performance defensively. You can't just rely on the back four, we needed Norburn and Vela in front of us. Young Nathanael was great again and Sarkic really helped us.

"As long as I'm playing, I don't care what formation we play. We miss Aaron Pierre, Matthew Pennington, and Brad Walker. Competition for places will be tough when they're back.

"I am taking things game-by-game and so are the lads. We keep rolling out Saturday - Tuesday games and I love it. We have another really big game against Ipswich and we want this to be the start of another good run."
