Micky Mellon left stunned by Shrewsbury Town fightback

11 February 2015

Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon admitted he was stunned by his side’s fightback as they scored two late goals to come from behind and beat Carlisle United 2-1.

Charlie Wyke’s second-half goal looked to have won the game for the Cumbrians but a 93rd-minute strike from Micky Demetriou and a James Collins goal 60 seconds later won it for the Shrews.

The result saw them move back to the top of Sky Bet League 2, ahead of Burton Albion on goal difference.

Mellon told “I’ll be honest, I was stunned.

"With a couple of minutes to go you’re thinking about what you are going to say to the players after the game.

"But to say that was dramatic would be an understatement. And what a finish from James Collins at the end.

"When it’s coming across to you like that and you slot it away the way he did was pure class.

"Under all that pressure it really was top draw.

"English football lasts until the 94th or 95th minute and I’m very glad we have come out on the right side."
