McAllister - Good Time To Score Again

McAllister - Good Time To Score Again

Dave McAllister bagged his first goal in over a year for Shrewsbury yesterday, and thankfully it was a strike that returned three points.

The midfielder put the final touch on our fantastic comeback against Notts County yesterday and grabbed what turned out to be the winner 20 minutes from time.

Speaking to the Official Site and obviously delighted McAllister explained.

'It was my first goal in nearly a year, so it's been a while. My last one was at Walsall so it's a great feeling. I'd love to get a few more between now and the end of the season.'

McAllister goes on to say that with how the goal went in everyone has been giving him a bit of stick following the game, with some saying he shinned it in, others saying he tackled it into the net and he couldn't care less, as the bottom line is it went in and gave us the victory.

Being two down as we were so early on, the 25 year old admitted that manager Michael Jackson had some choice words in his half time speech pointing out that it looked like some of the players were just waiting for the full time whistle believing they were already beaten, but with Jon Taylor's opening goal for us, plus the sending off, it was still all to play for and McAllister couldn't really disagree with what Jackson was saying, but thankfully everyone went out in the second half determined to prove him wrong when it came to the 'already beaten' barb.
