Boss spells out importance of April

1 April 2014

Jacko talks of the month to shape Town's season

Mike Jackson has underlined the importance of the next six games as Shrewsbury Town push to achieve League One safety.

The manager, who conducts a question and answer session with supporters at the Greenhous Meadow tonight (7.30pm), stressed everyone needs to pull together as Town prepare for Saturday's home game against Stevenage.  

He held a meeting with the players this morning to talk about the next month and what's required of everyone.

"The lads have got a month of their lives to shape, some of them, the rest of their career," he said.

"That's the same for me and the staff. We've got a month now that could make or break your life in some ways.

"It's an opportunity for everybody so we've got to make sure we commit now to this last month, that nothing's left, there are no regrets...

"These lads have got to realise now what's at stake. We do and it's just about giving them the confidence to go and have a go for it.

"That's the thing that can separate it now.

"We need somebody to go on a little run of goals. Notts County have done it. Their centre back's gone and scored three, Ronan Murray's gone and scored four.

"We need a little but of luck but you earn that by the work you put in out there on the grass now.

"I've mentioned to these lads today that you're not remembered for your car or your clothes or your hair cut, you're remembered for what you've done for the club and it will shape the rest of your career so that's where we're at."  

There is a special ticket offer for Saturday's match against Stevenage with the club urging all Town supporters to get behind the team. 

We want to create an atmosphere of passion and excitement that will push the team to victory and we know the backing of a noisy home crowd is vital.    

Anybody who is a Greenhous Meadow season ticket holder or buys a full price ticket for the Stevenage game can bring an additional adult with them for just £5 or a child under-12 for only £1.
