“The lads didn’t feel they played with enough confidence,” said Warne. “Which is odd because they’re top of the league, but credit to Shrewsbury, they gave us no time on the ball and I don’t know if it reverberated around the team that they didn’t want to be the one making the mistake.
“From our performance I thought it was a good point earned, I thought we were the better side in the first half considerably and should have taken a couple of chances.
“I don’t think we were at our flamboyant best but we could have gone in two or three up comfortably, but then in the second half Shrewsbury were in the ascendancy virtually the whole 45 minutes – we even considered changing shape which we haven’t done all season but they put it on us and they deserved at least one goal second half.
“It was always going to be a tough game and they were definitely up for it, we’re top of the league and people are going to hunt us down and I made changes because of the state of the players.”
“We had some leggy players in the camp. Everyone could see that. We kept another clean sheet. We go into Saturday and we know we will have to be a lot better.”
