They said it

“I couldn’t wait until half-time if I’m honest because I needed to get them in and calm them down because they could have caved in after the goal.

“The performance in the second half was outstanding, we were unlucky to hit the crossbar and their keeper pulled off a number of saves.

“We looked threatening after scoring the penalty and I am relatively pleased. If things went our way, then maybe we would be celebrating three points today.” Michael Appleton on his side’s performance after drawing 1-1 away from home against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.
