Keates frustrated with Shrewsbury stalemate

2 October 2018

Manager Dean Keates cut a frustrating figure after the Saddlers' goalless draw with local rivals Shrewsbury.

The Saddlers created a plethora of chances, with Morgan Ferrier, Zeli Ismail and Josh Ginnelly all going close, and Keates felt his side should have put Shrewsbury to the sword.

The boss admitted it was a game of fine margins and felt on another day the Saddlers could have won comfortably.

“I have no idea how it stayed goalless,” said Keates.

“We have created chances but we need to be more ruthless. Yet again the keeper has pulled a few decent saves off.

“It is fine margins and we are just falling short at the moment. It needs addressing but we asked for a reaction and I think we got that.

“Roberts made two decent saves from distance.

"We have kept their efforts to a distance but we need to look at ourselves and we should have put them to the sword.

“We should have taken our chances”
