Aaron Wilbraham reflects on Town's draw with Hull City

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

Shrewsbury Town's unbeaten run was extended as Salop secured a point against Sky Bet League One leaders Hull City.

Despite the away side building back into the fixture after Nathanael Ogbeta's goal, Town held on to secure a valuable point at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Town Assistant Manager Aaron Wilbraham was pleased with the Town performance against strong opposition and feels proud of the team for taking four points off the Tigers.

On the result:

"I think it's a good point taken from the league leaders. To take four points off the league leaders as we have done is a great effort from the boys. I think it shows how far the lads have come under the Gaffer. I think it was probably a fair point in the end. We wish we could have held on to the lead. That was their 41st goal away from home this season. 

"The togetherness and team spirit was there again as always. Speaking to a number of Hull lads that I know after the game, they were telling me how difficult it is to break us down. We have a great work-rate and that's why churn these kinds of results out.

"There were a lot of stoppages and a lot of breaks in play. It was a stop-start scrappy kind of game. To take the lead was nice and we couldn't hold on to that. Nathanael fancies himself on free-kicks and he practices all the time. It's an own-goal but it doesn't go in unless he hits it as well as he did."

On the City goal:

"We managed to block the first shot and then he got the ball back. The lads throw their bodies at shots as they did all game, and they'll all do that. We all know about Greg Docherty's shooting and we were unlucky to not get the block in.

"Both teams were going for the game. It shows you the belief that both teams have got. I think our lads just needed that hint of belief at half-time. The way we started the second-half shows you how determined the lads were to win the game."
