Nathanael Ogbeta reflects on Town's win over Swindon Town

By Media Team on 07/02/2021

Shrewsbury Town's trip to Wiltshire ended with Salop traveling home with all three points after earning a 1-0 victory over Swindon Town.

A dominant performance was topped off with a Harry Chapman wonder strike as the away side saw the game out well to earn the win.

Town left-back Nathanael Ogbeta was delighted with the performance and was pleased the Salop squad took all three points back to Shropshire.

On the result:

“It was a different game. We lost Aaron to injury, so we changed the formation - a big change to the system. For me personally, as a wing-back, I prefer to be more attacking, but it was a different type of game where we had to battle, defend and be solid as a back four.

“We all had different responsibilities, but we produced a good display and solid performance as a team.”

On his step up to Men’s Football: 

“You play football your whole life and these are the moments you prepare for, not everything is going to be perfect and that’s what I am still learning.

"Coming here is a step out of my comfort zone but it's what’s going to make me become the footballer I want to be in the future. I love these challenges, so I just try and play the game, not the occasion. I try to focus and be the best I can be and do my bit for the team because that’s the most important thing.”

On Harry Chapman:

“Honestly, Harry is a serious player. To produce a moment like that isn’t new to him, he does it in training so in a way, I was expecting it. To do it in a game is obviously different to in training, but his quality in the final third is something really important to this team.”
