Shrewsbury Town midfielder David Davis spoke to press after yesterday's 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon.
Shrewsbury Town picked up another point on the road after travelling down to London to face AFC Wimbledon at the new Plough Lane.
David Davis played an integral part in securing a share of the spoils for Steve Cotterill’s men and was heavily involved in the middle of the park.
Speaking after the game, ‘Digga’ spoke about the game, the away support, and the birth of his baby daughter this week.
On the fixture:
“It’s a good point for us. I think we’ve been a bit disappointed about the last three games, we feel like we should’ve at least won one of the three but it’s important – especially when you go a goal down – to get back in the game and try to win the game, but obviously not get beaten. It’s been a long week for us all but it was important to get back in the game. I think we started brightly but we had a five-minute period where they were jumping on our mistakes. I thought we probably were the better team but, on the day, we take a point.
“It [the busy fixture schedule] is tough but it’s part and parcel. We’re used to it, but it’s part and parcel and we’re going to have to do it again next week so we dust ourselves down this week and get a good week’s training into ourselves.”
On the goal:
“You can see the patterns we work on. You could see them in the Bolton game and obviously, Gillingham was a bit different but you can see the patterns we’re trying to do and they’re coming off and they’re working. Obviously, we want to score more goals but at the same time, the things that we’re working on are coming. I thought we were on top and I thought we were going to get another goal, but we just didn’t have enough energy in the last 10 minutes.”
On the support from the fans:
“It’s great support. I think especially at home when they’ve got the place bouncing and when that many fans show up away [from home], it gives you that extra boost so when you go a goal down, you get an equaliser. They’re like our 12th man.”
On the birth of his daughter:
“My little daughter was born on Wednesday which I was buzzing about but I was straight into training the next day. She’s the next addition to the family and obviously, it’s a great high for me but at the same time I’ve got responsibilities here and back home, but once my little girl and my Mrs were safe back home, I was concentrating on the game.”
