Wroe to face old boss

29 November 2013

Nicky glad to be back in team

Midfielder Nicky Wroe insists Shrewsbury Town go into Saturday's trip to Stevenage with a positive attitude as he faces the side managed by his former Preston North End boss Graham Westley.
 
Wroe, back on loan at the Greenhous Meadow from Deepdale, was signed by Westley two summers ago and responded by scoring 11 goals from midfield for Preston last season.
 
Many of those goals and appearances came under Westley before he left the Lancashire club and later returned to Stevenage to begin a second spell in charge. 
 
Recalling his time playing for Westley, Wroe said: "Stats wise, I played a lot of games last year and scored quite a lot of goals for a midfielder so I suppose it was quite a positive season under him."  
 
Wroe was was disappointed not to help Town to a second successive win on Tuesday night when Oldham came from behind to run out 2-1 winners at the Meadow, but he stressed the squad remained in good spirits. 
 
"We'll go there with a real positive attitude," he said. "There's no point moping around or getting your head down. You've got to focus on your next task which is Saturday against Stevenage."
 
Wroe added he was enjoying his football once again since returning to Shrewsbury on loan following a frustrating first few months of the season at Preston. 
 
He said: "It's got me back playing a lot more so I'm a lot happier - but you're a lot more happier when you're playing and winning as well.
 
"It's good to be back playing but hopefully we can string some more good results together."
