13 August 2022

Goalscorer Matthew Pennington spoke to the media following Shrewsbury's first league win against Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park.

Pennington's header from a George Nurse long throw and Luke Leahy's 88th-minute penalty secured victory for Salop win after they came from behind to win 2-1 at Adams Park.

The central defender spoke about the first league win, the game conditions, his goal and the away fans.

On the first league win:

"I am buzzing to get the three points. We needed that after the first couple of games.

"It's nice to get us started, we felt like we started okay the first couple of games but didn't get the result so it's something nice to build on going into a tough week."

The game conditions:

"Yeah (tougher conditions to play in than Cardiff) as that was a night game, and this was three o clock in the baking heat. It was tough. The conditions definitely played a part on the game as it slowed down in certain stages."

His goal:

"It was a dangerous throw-in from Nursey (George Nurse), and it caused them a few problems. I peeled off someone at the back post and got a chance to score."

The away contingent:

"It was brilliant to see them all bouncing up and down. My mum, dad and fiancé were there as well so I could see them bouncing as well and that was brilliant. I really enjoyed seeing them do that. To send them home happy today was just brilliant."

Chey Dunkley:

"It's brilliant to have him next to me. He wins all sorts of headers and he was really solid again today."

Marko Marosi's performance:

"We gave them too many shots in the first half and they had quite a lot of looks at our goal but when they did get a chance, Marosi was there to save it, so credit to him today."

Upcoming games against Derby County and Ipswich Town:

"Yeah, (they're) definitely (tough fixtures). Football is all about momentum and thankfully we have that now so hopefully, we can continue that."
