Harry Chapman reflects on Town's draw with AFC Wimbledon

Harry Chapman 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.

The forward was pleased to have contributed another stunning goal for the team but was left frustrated that Salop didn't secure the extra two points.

On the result:

"It definitely feels like two points dropped. We dominated large parts of the game but we need to be more ruthless in front of goal. On another day, decisions go our way and we are 3-0 up.

"With the two goals being chalked off, it gave them more incentive to get back into the game. With our goal, it's a strike I work on all the time and I enjoyed seeing it hit the back of the net.

"When I found out I wasn't starting, I stayed out on the training pitch and worked on that finish with Harry Burgoyne. Luckily the chance fell for me today and I replicated what I've been working on."

On squad rotation:

"I've played eight games on the bounce now and I was definitely feeling it. I had a chat with the Manager and Aaron Wilbraham and they decided to take me out for this game.

"When Ollie Norburn went down, I had to make sure I was ready to come on and make an impact for the team. Thankfully I was able to help the team and I'm pleased with that.

"I have really enjoyed my time here so far. It's the furthest I've ever been away from home so my sole focus has been on football - my performances are hopefully reflecting that."
