'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jackson Frustrated With City Loss

Manager Michael Jackson has admitted frustration following our three two loss to Bristol City on Saturday.

Shrewsbury came from behind twice in the game thanks to goals from Tamika Mkandawire and Paul Parry, but unfortunately City still went on to take the lead for a further time and at the third time of asking we couldn't conjure another equaliser sadly and our three match unbeaten run came to an end.

Speaking to the Official Site following what was a game with real attacking intent from both teams, whilst there were positives, the overriding factor was simply we lost and it's difficult to be too happy with that in any event.

'It's disappointing, you look at the goals we've given away and they have been poor. The first from a throw in, the second is a mistake and an own goal, and third is from a set play. We should have done better.'

The gaffer goes on to say that you always end games, regardless of the result, looking for positives and things that you can take and build on, and he certainly can in this game in terms of how we attacking and the freedom with which we did that, adding to showing the character to come from behind twice, and they are all good positives things to have taken, but they'd have counted for more had we come out with at least a point.

'When it was back to 2-2 I felt we were in the ascendancy and there was only one team going to go on and win it but then you hand them something like that and then they just shut up shop. We continued to have some good chances, but it just didn't go in for us.'

Jacko goes on to say that given how the game played out he certainly doesn't feel a draw would've been unfair on either side, as he knows the players really did give their all which is all you can ask sometimes but in our position, a point is certainly better than nothing, and we've come out with nothing to show for our efforts.

Of course the fight is not over and we continue to face teams in and around us, so positive results in those matches will certainly change the makeup of the league table and that's what we have to focus on because there are certainly enough points left to fight for that will make a major difference to our season.

On to Crawley and hopefully the start of another unbeaten run.
