Jules: We got a point, but it feels like two dropped

Defender Zak Jules spoke to the club after Fleetwood Town’s frustrating Sky Bet League One draw against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday afternoon.

The Cods managed to take the lead in the away clash through an Anthony Pilkington header from a Callum Johnson cross, but a second-half penalty, which was converted by Luke Leahy, saw the points be shared at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Here’s what Zak said after the game:

On the draw against Shrewsbury…

“Everyone in the changing rooms is disappointed; we came into this game fully expecting to get three points as it was a game that every one of us thought we should have won. It should have been a winnable game, and you have to look at it a positive way and say that we’ve got a point, even though it feels like two points dropped.

“It’s disappointing but the lads know that we are more than capable of stringing a few wins together which would see us pull away from the zone we are in. We just need it to drop for us and I’m sure it will come.

“This result shows how tight the league is, if you manage to get a couple of wins, you will look a lot more comfortable and safer, even though you could be sucked back into the battle again, so, we are all looking towards the game on Tuesday now and will look for three points there.”

On the fighting spirit in the squad…

“When you get caught at the end of the table we are at the minute, you’ve got to fight for every single point you can get and I feel like we’ve shown what we can do against top sides like Rotherham, who are flying high at the top end of the table, we’ve shown we can dig in and get results.

“We were saying today that if you keep a clean sheet here, you win the game, and I feel like we go into every game likely to score so if you have that quality in the group, where we can put it in their net and keep it out of ours, we will win games – but we have to improve on what we did today.”

“I don’t think anyone in the changing room is concerned or worried, it’s just a case of today’s result being a bit disappointing so we’ve got to dust ourselves down and pick up some more points in the coming weeks and games."
