Shrewsbury Town boss Steve Cotterill on the high of beating Charlton Athletic

Steve Cotterill said Shrewsbury Town’s 1-0 win against Charlton Athletic yesterday is the biggest result since he started managing the club.
Daniel Udoh’s stoppage-time winner condemned Johnnie Jackson to his first defeat as Addicks caretaker boss.
Cotterill said: “I said the other one the other day [a 1-1 draw with Sunderland] was probably the biggest result since I’ve been here, I’m not sure whether this one eclipses it.
“It’s just been an incredibly difficult week. Everybody connected with the football club needs to be incredibly proud of themselves.
“From our supporters, away at Cheltenham, to Sunderland and again today, if I was to encapsulate a week of how our supporters have been, this week they’ve been at their best.
“The players have given them an opportunity to be at their best. I was just wondering at what stage we might get a bit leggy.
“The work from pre-season, only now will the lads understand the benefit of what they were doing in pre-season. The spirit was there for all to see, everybody connected to Shrewsbury Town will go home with a really nice feeling in their stomachs.”
