Rosler still smil­ing as Bees held by Shrews


The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Stu­art Dunn

Matt Richards free-kick wide.

Trotta bus­tled his way through to graze the post with a rasp­ing drive on 42 min­utes but Shrews­bury were a frac­tion away from tak­ing the lead as a Connor Gold­son’s 25-yarder whis­tled just past the post.

It was end to end at the start of the sec­ond half as Rodgers sent a ris­ing drive over the Brent­ford bar and Trotta was poised to cel­e­brate in the 55th minute when his block­buster was palmed away by Chris Weale.

Shrews­bury came sweep­ing back in the 67th minute as Gold­son swept the ball into the path of Jon Tay­lor whose ef­fort was headed off the line by Har­lee Dean to set up a fran­tic fi­nale.

Rosler said it was a fair re­sult and he was happy with a point.

“At this time of the year it is all about get­ting points and I thought it was a very good one," he said. "We went to a 4-4-2 and went for it.We had some good op­por­tu­ni­ties but they did as well on the counter.

"Tay­lor is a threat, Mor­gan is a threat but we coped very well as a group.

"Com­pli­ments to Shrews­bury as they had a game plan at our place and we drew 0-0. Both teams were equal and we got a draw. I can live with that es­pe­cially when you see the re­sults from other teams."
