Turner reflects on 'bitterly disappointing' leveller
Graham Turner revealed his frustration after Shrewsbury were unable to hold out for victory against Tranmere.
There were just two minutes remaining when Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro levelled matters at 1-1, cancelling out Marvin Morgan's powerful header from a Mark Wright free-kick on the stroke of half-time.
Tranmere were indebted to an outstanding display from goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams, crowned by two fine stops in stoppage time from Asa Hall and Michael Hector.
"It's bitterly disappointing, particularly to concede one as late as that," Turner said. "There were times when we didn't want it to be end-to-end. We just wanted to kill the game off but it was like that for a period.
"I thought we should have killed them off and we had one or two great breaks when we should have picked a better ball out. Then their keeper's made a great save at the end.
"In some ways we can count ourselves a little bit unlucky, but in other ways there was a little bit of naivety about our play. We should have defended better late on."
