Ryan Bowman reflects on Town's draw with Sheffield Wednesday

Ryan Bowman Steve reflects on Town's Sky Bet League One 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday.

Shrewsbury Town's afternoon at the Hillsborough Stadium ended with Steve Cotterill's men securing a point away from home.

Despite Darren Moore's side breaking the deadlock early on, Town battled back through Ryan Bowman to ensure Salop weren't left empty-handed.

Town's forward was delighted to have notched his first goal for the Shrews and was pleased Town travelled home with a point in the bag.

On the result:

"We didn't start the game great and that's something we need to improve on. We showed great character to get back into the game and we deserved the point. Going one goal down at a place like this makes things very, very difficult. The crowd gets on top of you and they cheer their own team on. We had great support ourselves but going a goal down deflates us and the supporters.

"Their penalty miss was probably the turning point after we started poorly. If they'd have scored that, it would have been a different game. We still would have given absolutely everything but that penalty miss was the turning point. We dug in and showed great character to earn a point. The main thing is, we didn't get beat.

"For the goal, Bennett and Vela combined well and they got the cross in. I went to the near post and managed to get a little touch on the ball but their 'keeper saved it. The ball was rolling out but luckily I was able to put it in the net.

"It has taken longer than I expected to get my first goal and it's been a stop-start season for myself. I picked up an injury in training, which was frustrating. I felt like we had the better chances in the second half and we were on top. We were causing them all sorts of problems and you could tell from the atmosphere."
