Aaron Wildig Post Oldham Athletic

1 January 2014

Aaron Wildig was back in the starting line-up and back on the scoresheet

Town picked up their second away win of the season and first win on 2014 with a 2-1 win at Oldham thanks to goals from Jon Taylor and Aaron Wildig.

Wildig was handed his first start since getting injured in the home win over Notts County and popped up with the winning goal.

He spoke to the press after the game and was asked for this thoughts on the game:”I've scored five or six goals for Shrewsbury but they've always been in a good win and never has actually been the winner.

“I'm delighted to get the goal but also delighted for the boys who held out, there were a few scary moments though watching from the bench.”

Aaron returned to first team action in the final minutes of the home defeat against Preston North End on Sunday.  GT brought him back into the first team for the important game at Oldham as Town looked to get back to winning ways:”I didn't know what to do when I scored, I wanted to go mad and celebrate but didn't really know what to do when it happened.

“I've put the shot in and then seen it hit the post but luckily I'm in the right place and managed to get the rebound and put it in.”

Town lined up with Tom Eaves as the lone forward with Aaron Wildig in behind supporting from midfield. It was a roll he hasn't played for at Town but one he's played before in his career:”To be honest I found it difficult, it was a difficult game with the conditions.

“I've played in that hole position before but to be honest I didn't have too much of an affect on the game in the first period, there were a few passes where I nearly managed to get people in.

“Luckily in the second half Summers has  played me in and I've managed to get the goal and I'm delighted.”

Aaron picked up a serious looking injury in Town's home win over Notts County that looked like it might leave him out of action for a long time.  In the end it turned out to be a badly bruised bone and after rehab he was back in training and back in the first team in a few weeks:”I was tired, I was tired at half-time as I've only had four training sessions since being given the all clear to resume training.

“The amount of training I've been able to do has been restricted due to the weather and we've only been able to get on the 3g pods.

“I've managed to get through about 60 minutes and have managed to help the boys to get the win today.”

After a string of defeats Town were looking to get a win under their belts and today's victory could be a big result in Town's season:”I said in an interview recently that we need to start getting back to back wins, our next game is against Leyton Orient on Tuesday and there's no reason we can't do that.

“We played there early on in the season and for 55 minutes there wasn't that much between the teams.

“They've got a cup game at Yeovil at the weekend so there's no reason we can't hit them and win the game.”
