Gudjon Disappointed With Defeat
Gudjon Thordarson was unhappy that his side failed to make their chances count after falling 2-0 at Shrewsbury Town.
The Iceman felt the Alex had more than enough chances to win the game but were just never clinical enough. Shrewsbury's Dave Hibbert punished the poor finishing (and defending) on the half-hour mark before Joss Labadie wrapped it up in the second half.
Gudjon gave his reaction to the defeat on the official website after the match:
'We need to take our chances and in the second half, both Anthony and Byron have hit the woodwork. It was one of those days for us and we have to learn from it and take that into our home game with Aldershot next weekend.
'Shrewsbury are a good side and we knew it was going to be tough because they lost at home last weekend. We knew they would come at us and I am disappointed with the first goal because we didn't pick him up (Hibbert) after we had cleared the corner.
'The second goal was a good execution from their midfielder but we didn't pressurise the ball as well as we should have. It was a good strike and Button didn't stand a chance with it but we invited the danger.
'We went with five strikers on the pitch at the end because I just felt we needed that one goal to get back into it. I still felt we could get something from the game if we had got a goal back with 15 minutes left but we couldn't take our chances and that was the story of the game.'
We now face Aldershot at Gresty Road on Saturday, a win will be vital if we want to keep pace with the front runners.
