Shrewsbury manager Michael Jackson believes their 0-0 draw with Coventry was a missed opportunity to get three points.
In a game of few openings at Sixfields on Sunday, Shrews striker Tom Eaves was guilty of missing two good chances while David McAllister almost stole the three points for Town who now sit three points adrift of safety in League One.
And while Jackson believes his team should have won the game, he was delighted with the hard work of his defence who kept their second clean sheet in three matches.
Jackson said: "I would say that it was a missed opportunity. I think we've had some great chances to win the game.
"Defensively we worked so hard as a group and I can't remember the last time we went three unbeaten.
"I think the one where Ryan Woods has got down the side and whipped it in for Tom Eaves we should have taken. We should've finished our chances.
"That's been a problem for us but I'm not going to blame people and if they keep working like that then we will not be too far away.
"People have got to see that the team is working together. They're trying so hard to get out of this and I think that's credit to the players and I hope the fans can see that."
