Parry targets more goals - and points

11 October 2013

Winger backing Town to pick up point

Experienced winger Paul Parry is hungry to keep the goals flowing after his cool late finish rescued a point for Shrewsbury Town against Carlisle last weekend.
 
The former Wales international latched on to a diagonal ball from Ryan Woods and finished in style to salvage a 2-2 draw.
 
Now he wants Town to build on their point against the Cumbrians by sealing a return to winning ways when Gillingham head to the Greenhous Meadow tomorrow. 
 
"A goal was well overdue for myself," said Parry. "It had been a while since I had scored a goal in the league, and with us being 2-1 down with a minute to go it was a well timed goal.
 
"My last goal, I can't remember when it was, the turn of the year maybe. I scored a couple during pre-season and I felt really fit. It was nice to get that one and hopefully I'll chip in with a few more goals now. 
 
"It was disappointing that we didn't win the game as I felt we did enough during it to have taken all three points.
 
"But at the end of the day we've stopped a run of two defeats and we've got to kick on from there."
 
Parry's goal crowned a pleasing return for the former Cardiff City man after missing the previous two games against Wolves and Bradford City with a hip injury.
 
He said: "I picked up the injury at Bristol City and when I did it, it felt really painful and I felt I might be out for a little while.
 
"But I worked well with the physios, had a bit of rest, a bit of rehab and came back feeling good at training last Thursday."
 
Parry is now hoping that Town, who have drawn six of their opening 10 League One games this season, are smiling come 5pm tomorrow as they get ready to take on Martin Allen's Gillingham. 
 
"We've had two home games in a row and if we can take for points out of six it will be a decent return for us, he added. 
 
"We haven't won since the Swindon home game so we're well overdue three points, albeit we could have won a lot more games than we have done. Saturday would be a timely three points for us."
