Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's defeat at the Stadium of Light

23 January 2021

Aaron Wilbraham shares his thoughts following Town's narrow loss against Sunderland.

Shrewsbury Town's afternoon in Sunderland ended in disappointment as Lee Johnson's team secured a 1-0 win over Salop.

Charlie Wyke was the man on hand to notch the goal for the Black Cats as all three points remained in the North East.

Aaron Wilbraham was disappointed with the result but felt the Shrews deserved something from the fixture.

On the result:

"We definitely deserved something from the game. Sunderland started brightly like we knew they would. We matched them for effort but we didn't settle on the ball like we usually do.

"I think the last 15 minutes of the first half, and the whole of the second, we were pretty much camped in their half. We had a few decent chances and if one of those goes in, it's a completely different game. We were always in the game and Sunderland were lucky to get away with all three points.

"I was proud of the lads' hunger in the second half. We never stopped going and we looked like the only team who were going to score. We had a few chances but sometimes it's not your day.

"I thought Donald was excellent and we didn't expect him to last as long as he did. Ro-Shaun adapted well to the position we played him in - they both did well.

"I thought we took a while to relax and settle into the game. When we pass the ball around, we open teams up. They didn't let me down and the response to the Manager not being around has been excellent.

"We will now recover from this game and go again. This uneaten run comes to an end but we will start a new one - that's what we do. We will take the positives from the second half and go into Tuesday."

Aaron also confirmed during post-match interviews that David Davis is self-isolating and will join up with the Salop squad after his period of isolation.
