Manager Graham Turner has given his thoughts following our narrow one nil defeat against Brentford today.
Turner knew it would be a difficult game, and he was disappointed with us conceding the early goal in the match, but after that we dug in properly and started to play to our strengths more, but you'd have to be blinkered to say Brentford didn't deserve the victory given the chances they created.
The positive for us was that we kept it at one nil and weren't thumped really, but with that said, we had chances to nick a point but again it wasn't to be.
Speaking to the Official Site following the match Turner said he felt the team were in 'their shell' in the first half, and it took us too long to wake up and show what we are capable of doing, and in the second half he was much more pleased because we really started to go at them, but it really was a case of too little too late, especially as we still struggle to find the net and make the most of what we do create.
'The disappointment for me is that there were a number of crosses going into the box but there was no one there or we lacked the movement. Again it's a game where there haven't been many clear cut chances, we've blocked shots and defended well but once again our problems are at the other end.'
As for whether we deserved a point or not, the gaffer added that he felt we had the chances late in the second half to nick a point and he points to Jon Taylor who he thought seemed determined to get the ball on his right foot, when a quick left footed effort would've been the better option.
But that's where Shrewsbury are at the moment confidence wise, nobody is really taking a punt at goal and thinking if it goes wide 'sod it' we're a bit too focused in attack on wanting things to be perfect to increase our chances of making things count and we are probably over thinking things, and trying to be overly technical instead of just smacking the ball and seeing where it goes.
