A James Collins header in the 38th minute signalled the start of a huge celebration from a record Greenhous Meadow crowd as Shrewsbury clinched promotion to League One.

"It was a disappointing result but the performance was good," Still stressed. "I thought we pushed them all the way and Chris Lewington, our keeper, wasn't really flying around his goal.

"For what Shrewsbury were playing for, they might have been a bit edgy and I thought we started well. They scored their goal without us being under any pressure but late in the game we pushed them right back and I thought we put in a good performance against a very good team."

Still was quick to congratulate Shrewsbury on their promotion and insisted they were worthy of runners-up spot.

"I'm delighted for Shrewsbury," said Still. "They're a proper football club, proper people on the management side and they've gone up by right. The table doesn't lie and they've deserved to go up and I congratulate them on a fantastic season."

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!
