Bradshaw keen to trouble Walsh

13 September 2013

Tom looking forward to getting back in action

Tom Bradshaw wants to put one over on his Wales under-21 team mate Joe Walsh when Shrewsbury Town head to Crawley on Saturday.
Bradshaw has just spent 10 days with Walsh on international duty in San Marino and Moldova, getting to know the Crawley central defender well.  
"I was speaking to Walshy who's a centre back for Crawley, giving him a bit of stick, saying I'm going to score a few past him," smiled Bradshaw, Town's three-goal top scorer.
"It's weird playing with the lads I'm now going to be playing against."
Bradshaw has clocked up plenty of travelling in the past week, travelling from San Marino to Moldova via Munich, while his return home from Moldova on Wednesday took 13 hours.
"We had a bit of a disappointing week as we only got one point out of the two games," said Bradshaw, who appeared as a substitute in both matches.
"We definitely should have got more out of the San Marino game and all the lads were almost a bit embarrassed with the result we had against them. I was told it was their first win in about 90 games!
"We did very well against Moldova and could have won 3-0 or 4-0. It was just one of those games where we were a bit unfortunate in front of goal."
"It's always a brilliant experience going away with the lads. It was a different set of lads to the last time I was involved so it was good meeting them.
"The way that we're playing there's definitely the potential to be a good team. We didn't quite click on this trip."
Bradshaw added he was enjoying his football and was keen to keep the goals flowing 
"I'm happy at the moment that I'm scoring," he said. "Things change in a second in football. One minute you can be out of the team and haven't scored in a while, the next you can be scoring three in three and back on international duty so I'm happy."
