Bennett braced for Bournemouth

6 November 2012

Looking forward to getting the chance to during loan spell

Latest loan signing Julian Bennett is looking forward to showing what he can do in a Shrewsbury Town shirt after linking up with the club on a month's loan from Sheffield Wednesday.
Manager Graham Turner has indicated the experienced defender, comfortable at either the heart of the back four or left back, will go straight into the Town side at Bournemouth tonight.
Bennett is no stranger to League One having helped both Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday achieve promotion from this division.
Now the 27-year-old is raring to go having not featured at first team level for the Owls this season.
"I'm here to help out as best I can," said Bennett. "I know Mark Wright from my days at Walsall a good few years ago so it's nice to see faces you know and everyone here has made me feel welcome.
"The stadium looks very nice and everything's in place. I've been at some big clubs and there's not much difference to be fair so this club's definitely heading in the right direction."
Bennett stressed there was no point in dwelling on last weekend's FA Cup exit at Hereford United, insisting it was more important to look ahead, starting with tonight's clash with Bournemouth at the Goldsands Stadium.
"Bournemouth have picked up and they're scoring goals as well," said Bennett. "But it's all about us, Shrewsbury, and if we can keep working hard and keep builing up the confidence.
"The boys look good and it's not looking like a case when everyone's heads are down. It's a case of keeping going, keep battling and get as many points on the board as we can."
