Luke Leahy reflects on Town's win over AFC Wimbledon

26 September 2021

Luke Leahy reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One home victory over AFC Wimbledon.

Shrewsbury Town's return to Montgomery Waters Meadow saw Steve Cotterill's men secure all three points in Shropshire.

With a goal and an assist, Luke Leahy was the man on hand to help Town on the way to the victory as his cross found Dan Udoh for the winner.

Town's wing-back was delighted with his double contribution to the result but was thrilled Town were able to secure a valuable three points at home.

On the result:

"We worked hard for that win. The three points is the most important thing but topping it off with a goal and an assist is great; I'm happy our hard work paid off today.

"For their goal, I should have just crossed the ball into the box but I didn't and went short - I got punished for that one. I needed the header to get me even. I'm happy with the assist and happy with the win.

"We all showed great character today. We went a goal down against a Wimbledon side who work hard and are doing well this season. To get back level and then go on to win shows the character within the team. A win, a goal, and an assist is a good Saturday.

"Even towards the end of the game, we still had chances but when you have something to hold onto, you naturally drop back five yards and we probably dropped a little too much. Today felt like a big win. We were 2-1 up for around 25 minutes but it felt like forever. When the referee blew his whistle and that three points were certain, it was a nice feeling."
