EAVES ON SPOT FOR A TRE­BLE

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

TOM EAVES got over it when he was de­niedthe chance to com­plete his hat-trick from the spot against Craw­ley on Easter Mon­day – by scor­ing his third open play.

The Shrews­bury striker had al­ready bagged two against the Red Devils when they were awarded a penalty, but cap­tain Matt Richards stepped up and missed from 12 yards.

But Eaves, who struck late on to round off his tre­ble, said:“You have to lis­ten to the cap­tain and Matt’s got to do what is best for the team.

“But I was dis­ap­pointed not to be able to take the penalty. I didn’t think my chance had gone, it just drove me on and I wanted to score an­other one.”
