On loan striker Bobby Grant has said that everyone was disappointed in the dressing room at full time following the game against Cambridge United because it was a completely dominating performance from Shrewsbury.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, the forward explained.

‘It’s a game I thought we totally dominated. We’ve had 5 or 6 chances and on another day we win 3-0. As the manager said it’s another very good team performance both in the first and second half which is pleasing. We’re normally good in one half, but not so much in the other. We take the positives and move on.’

Echoing the thoughts of manager Micky Mellon, he also said it was ‘one of the most complete’ performances that we have put in this season, certainly since he joined us on loan, but this goes down as another game that we should’ve won and we didn’t.

Grant of course had his own chances in the game, and he admits he thought his long ranger that cannoned off the bar was going in and he was gutted to see it come back out, and of course the other chance the keeper made a great save from, but of course other chances fell to other players and they were equally as unlucky on the day.

Like the manager’s comment given Cambridge have scored the second most goals in League 2, Grant also thought we were fantastic in defence and given everybody was disappointed with our defending in the loss to Exeter, it was the perfect response and we looked completely solid at the back and largely untroubled.

‘We’ll go into the Christmas games very confident. If we play the way we know we can we’ll beat anyone in this league. That’s not being overly confident, that’s the way the dressing room is. Anyone who dips below the standards that we’ve set, we know there are lads who’ll come in and do as well or even better.’

With Grant’s loan spell from Blackpool coming to an end on January 3, he admitted his mind was open to extending the spell and having a longer future at Shrewsbury.
