Luke Leahy looks back at yesterday's 0-0 draw with Cambridge United

6 March 2022

Shrewsbury Town midfielder Luke Leahy spoke to the media after yesterday’s 0-0 draw away to Cambridge United.

Leahy had a chance to win the game in the dying moments of the match that Salop dominated and were unfortunate not to take all three points back to Shropshire.

Leahy said the side were frustrated at not picking up all three points but felt there were plenty of positives to take from the fixture.

On the game:

“I don’t think we can get much closer [to winning]; that’s frustrating you know. We’ve come so close to going two or three nil up but another 0-0, another clean sheet, another point – we’ve got to be positive.

“We’re frustrated. We started the game really well and for the first 30 minutes, I thought we were on top. We were ruthless, and we were relentless, so we’ve got to take that into every game. There’s been a few times where we haven’t started games well and it has taken us a while to get involved in the game, but today that was completely different, we started really well. We were pushing them back and playing good football and then obviously they’re going to get a spell in the game, they’re at home and that. [In the] second half, they started a little bit better than us but once we got the ball down and started playing and crossing and getting onto second balls, there was only one team that was looking to win the game.”

On his late chance:

“I knew that Benno [Elliott Bennett] was going to lift it in and knew [Ryan] Bowman was going back post so I just went front post, and I knew that Ryan was going to head it back across. I’m not making excuses but the goal area isn’t the best and the ball didn’t really bounce properly, it’s just one of those. If I had it differently I’d have just thrown my whole body into it, but it’s just one of those, we created a lot of chances and there have been games where we haven’t created chances or anything like that, so it was good to create a lot of chances and test their 'keeper. Marko’s [Marosi] come in with a clean sheet and a clean top so it just shows you the way the game went.”
