Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's draw with Charlton Athletic

Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One draw with Charlton Athletic.

Shrewsbury Town's trip to London ended with Salop taking a point back to Shropshire after a 1-1 draw witrh Charlton Athletic.

Despite taking the lead through Sean Goss, Conor Washington stepped up for the home side to secure a point in the final minutes of the fixture.

Aaron Wilbraham was pleased with the Town performance and notes the Salop squad were disappointed to have not won the game.

On the result:

"I thought we played really well. We got stronger as the game went on and we had enough chances to go on and win the game. There is a tinge of disappointment in the dressing room from the lads because they feel we could have won the game.

"We can't be too disappointed because everyone played really well - we could have definitely won the game. Second-half, we were the better team and we had the better chances - we weren't exactly hanging on. We got stronger and stronger as the game went on.

"The subs that came on gave us a freshness and we were unlucky not to have won the game in the end. Like I said before, it's a good sign when the lads are disappointed with coming away to Charlton Athletic and not taking all three points."

On the goals:

"The Manager spoke to us at half-time about Gossy making those runs forward and he did that well in the second half - he found himself in some great positions. We saw Goss do that against MK Dons as well with his two goals. It was a great ball from Matthew Pennington, who was excellent today, and a great header from Sean.

"We watched clips on Conor Washington this week and we knew he likes to cut in on his right foot. I think the lads could have helped out and got a block on it."
