Nathanael Ogbeta reflects on Town's win over Swindon Town

7 February 2021

Nathanael Ogbeta reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One win over Swindon Town away from home.

Shrewsbury Town's trip to Wiltshire ended with Salop traveling home with all three points after earning a 1-0 victory over Swindon Town.

A dominant performance was topped off with a Harry Chapman wonder strike as the away side saw the game out well to earn the win.

Town left-back Nathanael Ogbeta was delighted with the performance and was pleased the Salop squad took all three points back to Shropshire.

On the result:

“It was a different game. We lost Aaron to injury, so we changed the formation - a big change to the system. For me personally, as a wing-back, I prefer to be more attacking, but it was a different type of game where we had to battle, defend and be solid as a back four.

“We all had different responsibilities, but we produced a good display and solid performance as a team.”

On his step up to Men’s Football: 

“You play football your whole life and these are the moments you prepare for, not everything is going to be perfect and that’s what I am still learning.

"Coming here is a step out of my comfort zone but it's what’s going to make me become the footballer I want to be in the future. I love these challenges, so I just try and play the game, not the occasion. I try to focus and be the best I can be and do my bit for the team because that’s the most important thing.”

On Harry Chapman:

“Honestly, Harry is a serious player. To produce a moment like that isn’t new to him, he does it in training so in a way, I was expecting it. To do it in a game is obviously different to in training, but his quality in the final third is something really important to this team.”
