Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's 1-1 Sky Bet League One draw with AFC Wimbledon.

Shrewsbury Town's return to Montgomery Waters Meadow ended with Steve Cotterill's men earning a 1-1 draw against AFC Wimbledon.

Harry Chapman's first-half strike from distance wasn't enough to secure Town all three points as the away side fought back to earn a point with a second-half goal.

Town's Assistant Manager, Aaron Wilbraham, was pleased with the Town's progress during the fixture but was left frustrated that Salop didn't take all three points after taking a deserved lead.

On the result:

"It's always frustrating to concede a late goal but we tried our hardest to get the win - some nights it just doesn't quite happen. We are disappointed with the late goal because we all thought we were in for a victory.

"We created the best attacking chances, we looked comfortable in the first-half and we knew it was going to be a second and long-ball battle. We dealt with things well up until that point with their goal. It was a great strike from Harry Chapman and he has that in the locker, he does it all the time in training - it was a great finish.

"The goal conceded is disappointing, to be honest, we should stop crosses. We should see games out when it's 1-0 with six minutes to go. It's just one of those days because we are usually very good at seeing games out."

On squad rotation:

"The three lads that we rested needed the rest, they'd done a lot of running in recent games. Rotation gives other lads a chance to come in and do well. We haven't done that a lot but we felt it was time to change it up a little bit.

"David did well coming in. He got in some good spaces for us and he kept the ball well. He wins skirmishes and his knowledge and experience always places him in the right place."
