Lions boss Neil Harris rues missed chances

10 December 2016

One defensive lapse also proves costly

Lions boss Neil Harris could scarcely hide his frustration after watching his side create a hatful of chances against bottom club Shrewsbury Town, but finish pointless after failing to find the breakthrough.

"Well what do you say after that?" he asked.  "The initial stats say we had 19 shots on goal. They've had three, one being a header from 15 yards. Two things really, we couldn't score today, but even so we should have had a point from a 0-0 draw.

"It was a rubbish goal to give away once more. At the other end some of our play around their box was good and we just couldn't find an end product, but some of our finishing was also wasteful.

"To win football matches it's all about what you do in both boxes. My team is never going to be short of effort or competitiveness, but at either end we have to be better.

"It's not often I've bemoaned bad finishing because we've scored plenty of goals this season, but today we looked a bit nervy and lacked composure, and we can help ourselves in that respect by not conceding the first goal."
