Bruno Reflects On Shrews Draw

28 November 2016

This past weekend, it was another draw for Vale, as they were held by Shrewsbury Town 0-0 at the Greenhous Meadow.

It was an important point on the road for the Valiants and it was the first they had gained since the win against MK Dons.

Vale had the better of the chances in the game and were unlucky to not come away with all three after Alex Jones hit the woodwork from distance.

After the game, manager Bruno Ribeiro insisted his side will keep going and working hard to ensure that next time they take all three points on the road.

He said: “We did everything on the pitch, we have six former starting eleven players not playing and it’s not easy.

“But, these players that have played have good attitude to win we just needed a goal.

“We did our best and we had the best of the opportunities and it’s one point. We wanted three, but we will keep going and working hard.”

Moments before Jones had hit the crossbar for Vale, goalkeeper Jak Alnwick made a fantastic save to deny the Shrews taking the lead.

It was his fifth clean sheet of the season and wasn’t the first time he had made an important save, something which led to Bruno saying he is the best ‘keeper in League One.

He said: “He’s fantastic for us. When you want to win a game we go with more strikers and we have more space in defence.

“But, Jak is fantastic and for me he is the best goalkeeper in this league he improves week by week like others and I’m very happy with him.”
