Jackett's men had been looking for a 10th successive win having made it a club record nine with a 4-1 win at Swindon but dogged Shrewsbury were a tough nut to crack as the draw moved Wolves a point clear of second placed Brentford.

Jackett said: "It was a frustrating day and we certainly didn't have our shooting boots on.

"But credit to Shrewsbury as playing five at the back made it very difficult for us to get in behind them.

"Although we got the ball in the box a lot we didn't get on the end of it. They defended their box really and they made switching play tough for us.

"We had a lot of shots and had a couple of those flown in we would have been feeling differently.

"But we didn't hit the target enough and tactically we didn't use the wide areas enough to stretch the opposition.

"I have told the players where I think we could have done better and after that my words were that we take our point and we move on because we have to move on very quickly.

"We are not happy with a point, we wanted three, but we take it and move on.

"We have got two tough games coming up now in in the next week against Crawley and Sheffield United. Both sides will come and attack us and so I think they will be different to this game.

"You can't expect to have everything your own way. But we also feel that we can play better than we did against Shrewsbury. We know that.

"I didn't think we did enough in the final third. But it is not something you can just turn on and off like a tap. You have to keep concentrating and, as I said, I am not happy with it, but we take our point and move on."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
