Parry ready for Doncaster

26 February 2013

Paz hoping Town can finish February on a high

Winger Paul Parry is hopeful Shrewsbury Town can wrap up what has so far been a very productive February with three more points at home to promotion contenders Doncaster Rovers tonight.
Town have won three of their four games this month, beating Preston North End, Tranmere Rovers and Stevenage, with the setback a home defeat against current leaders Sheffield United.
Parry is now looking forward to trying to help Town widen the gap between themselves and the relegation zone after surging eight points clear following Saturday's fightback win over Stevenage at the Greenhous Meadow.
But he knows Doncaster, now manager by Brian Flynn after Dean Saunders left for Wolves, will provide Town with tough opposition.
"It was nice to get the three points on Saturday, it's back-to-back wins for us now and takes us into the Doncaster game full of confidence," said Parry.
"I don't think Doncaster come into the game in the best of form but they're a strong team and one of the fancied teams to go up this year.
"The new manager's taken over and they'll certainly be looking to go up automatically, the worse case scenario into the play-offs, so it will be a tough game for us but we're in good confidence now and we'll look forward to it."
Parry was pleased to play a leading role in Saturday's triumph over Stevenage with his well taken equaliser pulling Town level before half time.
"It was all right for a standing foot shot," he smiled. "They don't come along very often and they usually fly into the top of the stand!
"It was nice to score a goal on my weaker foot and it was an important goal and a good time for us to get the equaliser.
"When we got level we looked good and I always felt confident we would go on and win the game."
Parry is now keen to continue to play a leading role after being in and out of the Town team during the last few months.
"At the moment it's going all right," he added. "The season started well for me. I had a bit of a patch between then and now when I wasn't playing a lot of games and my form dipped.
"Hopefully the goal on Saturday has given me a bit of confidence and I'll kick on from now until the end of the season."
