Connor Goldson hurt by Town's position

Connor hoping that tough season can end with Town victories

Shrewsbury Town defender Connor Goldson admits the club's current position at the wrong end of League One really hurts ahead of tomorrow's final home game of the season against Peterborough United.

Goldson is very disappointed how this season has turned out with Town six points adrift of safety with just two matches to play.

He said: "I've been here since I was 15 years old. I don't want to be involved in a relegation but unfortunately at the moment it looks like we have.

"I've played a big part in the season and I don't like it. I want to give my best every game, I want to do my best for Shrewsbury Town, and unfortunately it hasn't been enough."

Goldson's mood is much in contrast to his old Meadow youth team pal Andre Gray who has this season helped Luton gain promotion back to the Football League.

He said: "One of my mates who was here, Andre Gray, has just got promoted at Luton and the way he is at the moment, seeing his pictures and how happy he is, I was saying to Jon Taylor the other day we have to bounce back next year because that's how I want to feel.

"Football's got two different sides. You can either be down one year and can be straight back up the next.

"Hopefully, if the fans stay with us, they're going to see a good season next season."

Goldson added it had been a tough season with Town dragged into a relegation scrap.

"We knew that League One was going to be a much harder league," said Goldson, part of the squad promoted two years ago. "We did well last year to stay up. It didn't look the best until after Christmas and I think Tom Eaves came in and helped us out.

"This year it's been another tough season and I think we've been a little bit unfortunate, but at the same time we can't blame anyone but ourselves."
