Matthew Pennington reflects on Town's loss against Wycombe Wanderers

Matthew Pennington reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One home loss against Wycombe Wanderers.

Shrewsbury Town's second consecutive home game came to a conclusion with visitors Wycombe Wanderers taking home all three points.

Despite Matthew Pennington pulling a goal back for Salop, Steve Cotterill's men were unable to go one better to find the equaliser as Gareth Ainsworth's men left Shropshire with the win.

Despite getting on the scoresheet for Salop, Town's defender was left frustrated with the result and felt Town did enough to earn a point.

On the result:

"I thought we had enough chances to take something from the game and to concede the way we did was disappointing. Wycombe are awkward to play against. It's long balls and any free-kick in our half, you know is coming into the box. It was tough to deal with and they're effective in what they do.

"I thought we dealt with them really well in the first half and second half we had a period where we didn't deal with things well enough. It's all about the second ball when it drops and they're trying to get on it. As I said, there was a period of around 15 minutes where we didn't deal with things well enough.

"The goal we scored was the first one from a set-piece I think. We all need to chip in with goals and that's something we need to improve on. We should score more really because we have some big lads and lads who want to attack the ball. Hopefully that will come and we'll score more goals.

"When you pull a goal back, the task then is trying to keep the momentum going and not get frustrated trying to get the next. You want to get on the front foot but they're good at frustrating teams. It's disappointing because we wanted to keep our run going with a draw or a win tonight. Luckily for us, we have another game on Saturday and we can go again."
