MATCH REACTION | McLaughlin frustrated by Shrews draw

31 October 2016

Blues winger reacts to Saturday's 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury Town

Stephen McLaughlin felt Blues dominated Saturday’s game against Shrewsbury Town but didn’t create enough clear cut chances.

The speedy winger brought Blues level after Adam El-Abd’s excellent strike put Shrews in front.

Blues couldn’t find a winner despite being on top and McLaughlin sensed a resurgent Shrewsbury with a new boss in the dugout.

“Of course it’s frustrating, drawing 1-1 at home, but you’ve got to think they’ve just got a new manager and they’re in high spirits trying to impress him for a place in the team.” He said.

“They came here for a point, which they got, so we’re frustrated.

“The goal they scored is enough to win any game. It was a well taken goal.

“Other than that, they didn’t threaten us at all and I thought we bossed the game.

“In the final third we could have been a bit more creative but a point is good and we continue this unbeaten run we are on at home.”

McLaughlin moved onto five goals for the season with his strike, level with Anthony Wordsworth.

He believes that when the strikers find their rhythm, they won’t be far behind and Blues will put games to bed.

“It’s always good to get a goal to help the team [with a goal].

“If we can get Simon Cox going, Nile Ranger going and the rest of the strikers and spread the goals about in the team then we can really push on in this league.”
