Opposing Manager's View

Shrewsbury Town manager Graham Turner was a relieved man as his side recorded their first away win of the season with a 1-0 victory at Coventry City.

Speaking to the Press Association, Turner said: It's a relief. "I think I am right in saying that we are the last side in the division to get an away victory and I'm delighted that we have got it at a place like this.

"Coventry had a number of near misses, but likewise we got into one or two really good positions. But it's pleasing to have another clean sheet, that's two on the trot now.

"It was an excellent defensive performance, typified by the goalkeeper, who I thought had another outstanding game for us.

"The anxiety comes from the record we have had. We have been prone to conceding late goals, equalisers or winners against us, so you get that anxiety and you get that anxiety on the pitch as well, so we are glad to have come through it. It won't change our philosophy, home or away."
