Shaun Whalley reflects on Town's draw in Accrington

21 February 2021

Shaun Whalley reflects on Town's 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium.

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.

The Town winger was pleased Salop left the Wham Stadium with a point

On the result:

"I think everyone who watched the game might not have enjoyed it - it was just a big scrap. Conditions were terrible, the pitch isn't the best but that's not Accrington's fault - the wind killed the game off. We went 1-0 down but we fought hard to get back into the game.

"Luckily, we got back into the game and either team could have nicked it towards the end. It was probably better for the neutral but it was hard to play in. Accrington have a big set of lads and they're on a good run. This is going to be a hard place for anyone to come, we did well to get back into the game."

On his goal and the Salop performance:

"The corner came in and Eddo got across it. Nobody managed to touch it but I flicked my toe on it and poked it in. The big part of today was continuing the unbeaten run but we would have liked to have won. Going a goal down is always hard and we won the last game from behind. Today we got the equaliser and we have to be happy with a point."
