Wilson: "We're very annoyed with ourselves"

Manager Danny Wilson felt his side produced a performance worthy of far more than their 2-1 loss to Shrewsbury on Saturday, in their first league loss of the campaign.

The Spireites had taken an early lead through Jay O'Shea but fell to two headers from two corners as Junior Brown and Adam El-Abd turned the tables to give Shrewsbury the win.

After the game Wilson spoke to PlayerHD, saying: "We're very annoyed with ourselves really, but it's not from the performance, we had a terrfic performance from my perspective and I even think the fans thought that as well.

"We created lots of chances, had lots of shots on goal, which is what you want in a game. Away from home you don't necessarily get those sorts of stats.

"What's disappointing are the two goals we conceded: two soft goals, two free headers. That's been the difference between the teams."

Wilson felt his side could have made more of the opportunities they created, but was also critical of referee Ben Toner, who missed a number of key decisions, including a late challenge on Spireites captain Gary Liddle.

"I thought we had lots of pockets of play in the first half," said the manager. "We've had a lot of decisions that haven't gone our way thorugh the officals which I was very disappointed with.

"It disjointed us sometimes, but they did score the two goals and they didn't have two goals in from the referee.

"As our performance goes it was fantastic."
