Lets get on with it - Sharps

Ian Sharps gives his thoughts on last weekends 1-0 defeat to Shrewsbury to todays Advertiser.

Both striker Drewe Broughton and keeper David Stockdale saw the red card in the second half; "It was certainly an incident-packed second half, not one that we will look back on fondly-but we have got to get on with things again." Sharps said.

"I think you can possibly understand the two sendings off, but when you look at how much protection Drewe Broughton was getting it was a bit unfair as he had been fouled at least three times. Town got just one booking between them while Drewe got two. "

"The referee had little option other than to send David Stockdale off as by the book he was the last man, so he had to go."

Ian rued missed chances; "We were by far the better side as we controlled the game (in the first half), although we maybe should have taken our chances to capitalise. They were very edgy when they came out for the second half. They had obviously been told that they weren't doing very well."

"Even when we went down to nine men Town were dropping back very deeply and they were still nervous. They are a good side. It was a game of few clear cut chances at either end while we had several long-range efforts and we snatched at a few with maybe the ball not bouncing right."

"It's worrying now that we have got six league games without a win but I think the Shrewsbury game showed that if we perform as we did against one of the best teams in the league then we should be all right." he added

"Now we have a big game coming up against Aldershot, who did very well to beat Wycombe last week. They were a good side when we played them twice recently so we will be looking for some payback."

"We will have two players missing through suspension so that will test the strength of our squad. However, the players who will come in will be more than capable so hopefully it will be back to winning ways."
