“We had 30 crosses, 15 shots, and missed some glorious chances”, Shrewsbury Town head coach Matt Taylor on the 0-0 draw with Charlton Athletic

Former Portsmouth, West Ham and Burnley midfielder Matt Taylor was in a positive mood despite Shrewsbury Town not scoring in their fourth League One game in a row.

Shrewsbury Town had to settle for a point this weekend against Charlton despite putting in a dominant performance.

Salop had 15 shots, with eight of those being on target, as well as missing three big chances – making this their sixth in all competitions without a goal.

Speaking post-match, Taylor told the press, “The players have given me, they have given the fans, and they have given each other everything today. 

“I thought physically we were excellent. In the first half, they couldn’t live with us. 

“Why? Because the players ran, they harried, they chased, and they made good decisions, and we got into some unbelievable positions on the pitch. 

“We have had 30 crosses, 15 shots, and missed some glorious chances. “

The Shrews have managed to get just one point from their previous four matches, so they will be looking to do everything they possibly can to get a win or at least a draw away to Oxford United tomorrow night.

Taylor says his side will push on:

“We have to use this as a springboard going into Tuesday night at Oxford. 

“If we play like that and if the players reproduce that whoever plays in the team, then we are going to pick up positive results in this league. That’s a fact.”
