Ben Godfrey: Shrews focus will switch quickly

8 April 2018

Norwich City youngster Ben Godfrey says loan club Shrewsbury Town will move on quickly from Sunday's Checkatrade Trophy final defeat to Lincoln City.

The defensive midfielder completed 90 minutes - as did fellow City loanee Carlton Morris - as Paul Hurst's side were edged out by Lincoln City.

That leaves Shrewsbury to focus on their challenge for promotion from Sky Bet League One, with their next fixture taking them to Bradford on Thursday evening.

"The feeling of losing here is not nice, I'll tell you that," Godfrey told

"I'm looking forward to getting back to winning ways. We've got no time to sulk as we've got a job on our hands.

"We can be disappointed today, but we can't change things. We'll be back in and ready to go soon.

"We're a professional bunch of lads so that's what we'll do."

Reflecting on the final itself, the 20-year-old added: "We didn't start as well as we would have liked to.

"They had the upper hand for the whole of the first half really. They made it ugly and we didn't stand up to it.

"That's meant it's been them who have lifted the trophy, which is massively disappointing. 

"You play football to be involved in big games but d unfortunately we came up short."
