Coventry City endured a frustrating start to 2013 when they went down by a single goal to Shrewsbury on Tuesday afternoon.
The Sky Blues were bright and busy from the beginning of the game, fashioning chances for Moussa and Baker and seeing a McSheffrey piledriver cannon back off the crossbar.
Shrewsbury defended solidly and showed ambition on the counter-attack, creating two good first-half opportunities down their left-hand side.
After the break the game should have been settled early on in City's favour as they again pushed forward, McSheffrey missing the chance of the game after it was presented to him on a plate by the visiting defence.
The phrase 'one of those days' was on the lips of every home fan and there were plenty of resigned shrugs when Shrewsbury broke the deadlock.
The Sky Blues continued to make opportunities but it was not to be and they end the busy festive period with 7 points from a possible 12 but only 1 from their 2 home games.
Leon Clarke made his debut for the hosts after signing on loan from Charlton Athletic, initially for 28 days, as Robins looked to win the game with Clarke alongside David McGoldrick up front.
That may be the one and only time the two are paired together as McGoldrick's loan spell ends but his replacement showed enough to suggest that he may prosper in the Sky Blues' system.
Reaction: Mark Robins was left scratching his head after the game at the number of chances missed by his side, saying: "We have wined and dined our supporters, but didn't see the job out.
"It's disappointing, we start the year in a negative way whereas we all wanted it to be positive, but we have to take it on the chin and try and move forward and build."
