Quinn: We should have won

Shrewsbury were twice ahead in the match but in the end had to settle for a point.

Gaffer Quinn told ShrewsWeb: 'I'm not happy with the result as I think we gave away two bad goals and after taking the lead - we should have been more solid at the back.'

But the Town chief did pay tribute to Ben Smith, who grabbed the second Town goal, 'Ben is probably the only player we've got who could have got that goal, he kept going and didn't give up', he said.

On a more negative point, the manager added: 'If I was to be ultra-critical today, I'd say we could have showed a little bit more composure when we had the ball, because they were banging balls into our box we were just banging it away.'

Boston manager Steve Evans was not a happy camper either. He aimed the blame at the referee as well as his players.

Evans whined: "Performances like that are not acceptable for this club and I won't tolerate them.'

He moaned: 'We were slack from the start and in my opinion dropped two points, I question whether Jason Lee's goal in the second half was actually offside and we should perhaps have had a penalty for a foul on Courtney Pitt.'

Nevertheless, it was another point gained for Town who seem to be finding their feet after a shaky start.
