Post Cambridge | Jordan Shipley

21 January 2023

Jordan Shipley chatted to the media following Shrewsbury’s thumping 5-1 win against Cambridge.

Shipley sent Town into the break with a two-goal cushion when he scored with a stunning 25-yard strike in first-half stoppage time.  

Skipper Luke Leahy had opened the scoring in the 33rd minute when he converted a penalty after Matthew Pennington was fouled in the box.

Speaking to the media post-match, Jordan discussed the team's performance, his goal and the confidence that comes from having scored nine goals in our last two matches.

ON THE VICTORY:

“It was a big performance. We knew we had to back up the Burton game with another win and keep the momentum going.

"It was a good performance from the lads - we won convincingly today.

"We didn’t start the game as well as we wanted to, and in the second half we didn’t start as well as we wanted to either so we know we can do better.

'We were also disappointed to concede the goal as well because we pride ourselves on getting clean sheets.

"It has been a good day and you can’t complain with a 5-1 win. We move on to MK Dons on Tuesday.” 

ON HIS GOAL:

"It's nice to score any goal. It could be from the edge of the box or it could be a tap-in - every goal is key for us.

"I'm happy with my goal, and I'm happy with all the other lads getting goals as well.”

ON THE COMPOSURE CHRISTIAN SAYDEE SHOWED FOR HIS GOAL:

“He is a really good player. He is young and strong, he is quick as well you can see that when he beat the centre-back to the ball.

"And he is composed, he took a few extra touches and slotted it in perfectly.” 

ON MATT PENNINGTON'S GOAL:

"He is getting his head on a few now, it's all good for Pennington, and it's good that the goals are coming from areas all over the pitch.

"Luke got two today as well from midfield, and Saydee scored as well so it's really good.” 

ON LUKE SCORING HIS SIXTH PENALTY OF THE SEASON:

"All the boys have battered him as he hadn’t scored a goal from open play, so when he scored the fifth today he was like ‘Yes! I've finally got one!’

"If we get a penalty, I have no worries about him scoring because I think he will score every time.” 

"It boosts everyone’s confidence. We will have tomorrow off, and on Monday we will come bouncing into the training ground.

"The lads will be ready for MK Dons and we will be looking to go down there and get three points. 

"We are going there with the same mentality as it was today and Burton - we are going there for three points, nothing less.” 

“It is always nice to see us back up there, but you know we need to push on now and go further up and see where we can finish by the end of the season.”
