Nicky Shorey has said he feels he hasn't done anything to deserve being dropped for our recent match against Blues.
Speaking to the Express and Star Shorey has said he didn't deserve to be dropped for Stephen Warnock for the derby match as he felt his performances had been fine in the games so far, afterall we had 3 wins on the bounce.
'I wasn't fearing the worst last Sunday. I thought I'd be playing but I wasn't.'
Shorey had received plenty of praise for his other performances this season and many fans did expect to see him keep his place in the team despite Warnock's signing.
Shorey also spoke about rejecting a move to Pompey at the close of the window, explaining that their interest came late in the day and he just didn't think it would be a good move for him. In was in the team who were on a mini winning run and he was playing well.
Despite being dropped, and now presumably being second fiddle to Warnock, Shorey stands by the decision and still believes it was the right one for him.
Now he's just focused on getting back in the squad if he can and taking it from there.
