Micky Mellon On Cheltenham Clash

24 April 2015

Manager Fully Focused On Getting Three Points

  • Micky preparing the same as always
  • Victory guarantees Town automatic promotion
  • Manager praises the fans' support this season
Manager Micky Mellon insists Shrewsbury Town have to focus on getting all three points at Cheltenham Town on Saturday - rather than any other distractions.

"The support has been terrific and consistent all season," said Micky.

"It is brilliant they are all coming to support us again and they will be a big part of Saturday and they know that.

"They will get right behind the boys and give us that extra bit of energy and enthusiasm because we know they have turned out in great numbers. They are very vocal and very encouraging."

And with tickets for the away end selling out, Micky heaped praise upon Shrews' loyal fans.

"I will not lose my focus on what is important and that is the now, getting the boys prepared, reminding them of standards they have set and the jobs they have to do.

"It is all to fight for. We will go out there and make sure we give all we can and try to get the three points."

"Again we are involved another fantastic game for the football club," said Micky.

"They have a new manager and have gone through a lot of personnel, but Gary Johnson is a very good manager who has had a good career.

"He will have them organised and it will be a tough challenge.

"It will be a tough game like they all are in this league but, like we always say, we will prepare properly and go down there expecting the challenge.

"It is up to us to keep our standards high and keep doing what has got us into the position we are in."

Cheltenham, on the other hand, are fighting to keep hold of their place in the Football League, so Micky is anticipating a very tough challenge.

Town take on the Robins at Whaddon Road in Sky Bet League 2 at the weekend (3pm kick-off), with seven wins in their last eight, looking to guarantee promotion back to League One with victory.
