Ethan Ebanks-Landell reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One 1-0 win over MK Dons.
Shrewsbury Town's return to Montgomery Waters Meadow coincided with Steve Cotterill's men securing three points over MK Dons.
A goal in the second half of the fixture from Town winger Shaun Whalley was the difference between the two sides as all three points remained in Shropshire.
Town captain Ethan Ebanks-Landell was pleased with the Salop win and was delighted the Town defence could secure the clean sheet.
On the result:
"We are buzzing with the win and it feels like a long time coming. We are happy with the win and happy with how we played. We knew we would have to stick together and we said that before the game. We've been working hard in training and it all came to fruition today. Keeping clean sheets is my job and hopefully there is more to come. You can look at the strikers and ask why they aren't scoring but we've not kept any out all season. We are a team but the defenders need to keep them out as well.
"Shaun is lucky he scored because the Gaffer always talks about squaring the ball to get the goal. But, he scored so we can't say anything to him on that. There's not another player you want in that position really and he's done that over the years - he's done it against me before.
"We have a tight-knit group and it's a small squad. We have to be tight and there's no cliques or anything like that - we all get on well and that's kept us together through the testing times. Hopefully now we can kick on and get more wins. It's all about action now and we have to go again on Tuesday. Oxford play a similar style to MK, so I think the game-plan will be similar. It will be a tough game but we are ready for it."
