Summers eyes first away win

7 December 2012

Luke hoping for hoping for better away form

Shrewsbury Town set off for Sussex today in the hope that tomorrow's clash at Crawley will produce a confidence-boosting first away win of the season.
Town are determined to improve on a lean run of results which have seen them collect just three points from a possible 30 up for grabs on the road this season.
It will be only a second visit for Shrewsbury to Crawley's Broadfield Stadium having lost 2-1 there last October during a season which ended with both clubs gaining promotion from League Two.
"We've been struggling away from home and it's not been going too well for us, but every game we go into with the same confidence," said midfielder Luke Summerfield.
"We know how good we can be and hopefully Saturday will be no different.
"We all know how tough a place it is to go but hopefully the three points will go for us on Saturday and will get us on a bit of a run.
"We all know as a squad, as a unit, as a whole club, what we need to do to achieve away wins. It's not a different mindset away than it is at home and we need to get our heads around things away from home and pick up the first win sooner rather than later."
Luke stressed the importance of being switched on throughout given that early and late goals have proved so costly to Town in a number of games this season.
"We struggled early on with a few early goals," he said. "And obviously the late goals have been killing us recently with a few different results, obviously the MK Done one. We played so well throughout that game and we definitely deserved to win.
 "We've got to keep our concentation from the word go right to the final whistle."
