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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
