Wildig says fans have big role to play

17 April 2014

Aaron urging everyone to push together for the final four games

Aaron Wildig says Shrewsbury Town supporters have a big part to play in helping the team push for three much-needed points when Crewe Alexandra head to the Greenhous Meadow on Good Friday.
 
The midfielder said the backing of the fans has been "brilliant" in the last two matches with the Meadow faithful roaring Town to a 1-0 win over Stevenage in the last home game.
 
Then nearly 900 travelling supporters headed to Tranmere Rovers last Saturday when Town were beaten by a late goal.
 
Wildig said: "I sent a tweet out after the Stevenage game saying how good they were. They were brilliant.
 
"They've had a difficult season watching us. We haven't played the best of football throughout the season so I expect it's been very frustrating for them.
 
"Their support is massive for us at this stage so we can only thank them for it."
 
Wildig added: "I thought the fans who went to Tranmere were brilliant. They were outstanding and it was a shame we couldn't get a result.
 
"When it went to 1-1 I thought there was only going to be one winner and it was going to be us.
 
"Then the pattern of the game changed slightly and they got that scruffy goal, the second one, but the fans were superb and hopefully we get that again tomorrow."  
 
Wildig and his team mates are determined to pick up three points against Crewe to keep them on course to pull off a great escape.
 
It's the first of two vital matches over the Easter period with Town travelling to Preston North End on Monday afternoon.
 
Wildig said: "There's no point going into these games thinking we can't win them because we're in a situation now where we've got to win them.
 
"We've got to try and enjoy it as much as we can. They're big pressure games but at the same time if you come out of it the right way then it's a great way to finish the season so hopefully we can get a positive result in both games." 
 
There is another special ticket offer in place for the Crewe game with the club eager to attract a bumper crowd to really get behind the team.
 
All Greenhous Meadow season ticket holders or anyone who buys a full price ticket for the game can bring an additional adult with them for just £5 or a child under the age of 12 for only £1.
 
This offer is also available for the last home game of the season against Peterborough on April 26.
