Disappointed we didn't win!

Shrewsbury defender Mat Sadler believes his team can still knock West Ham out of the FA Cup following today's goalless draw at New Meadow.

The League One side were the more likely of the two teams to score this afternoon but had to settle for a second bite of the cherry having been held to a draw by a West Ham side featuring several youngsters.

And Sadler - who required lengthy treatment during the second half - firmly believes that his team can upset the apple cart when the two teams meet again in the replay, the date for which will be confirmed soon.

"It's a game we're disappointed we didn't win in the end," he told the BBC. "We've had a couple of good chances and limited them to very few.

"We've now got the opportunity to go to the Olympic Stadium and go again - and I see no reason why we can't win there. I see no reason to think it won't be a similar game when we go there, so we'll look forward to that."

West Ham managed just four shots at goal during the game compared to Shrewsbury's nine, three of which were on traget (compared to West Ham's two). The hosts enjoyed 56 per cent of possession, with West Ham some way behind with 44 per cent.
