Mellon Proud Despite Draw

Mellon Proud Despite Draw

Manager Micky Mellon has said it's very much a case of two points dropped for Shrewsbury following the game against Northampton Town but inspite of that he couldn't have been prouder of their performance.

Accepting that Liam Lawrence was dismissed for a two footed tackle, Mellon told the Official Site that he was delighted with how we performed when we were down to ten men, and having taken the lead with 25 minutes to go, he knows we could've and probably should've added to that long before they grabbed their late, late leveller.

'I'm absolutely proud because we had so many things to contend with. Anybody who was here will know what I mean, to have been down to ten men for so long and given the performance we did in front of fantastic backing from our fans, yeah, it was disappointing to concede at the very end but I've got nothing but praise for my lads.'

Saying as much as he needs to about the performance of the referee on the day, but leaving out what he probably wanted to say, he said of the sending off of Lawrence.

'I have to admit that he got that one right.'

Adding in relation to his performance that the fans themselves would probably agree with the following summation.

'All I can say is Wow! Wow, just wow! I don't know what else I can say as I don't think I've seen anything as bad as that for a long time.'

Moving back to the performance though he went on to say that he wasn't going to let anything ruin his day or spoil it, because he was just proud of the team for absolutely giving 'all they had' and on top of that in the second period for him we really did play some fantastic football as well.

'We can find ourselves very unlucky not to have come away with a victory that's for sure. It's a great thing when a manager can walk into a dressing room and say how proud he is and I've had that moment today.'
