30 April 2015

Manager Pleased To Still Be In The Title Hunt

  • Micky says his side are in a 'terrific position' to win the league
  • Town trail leaders Burton by two points heading into the final day

  • Manager also speaks about Shrews' leading goalscorer Collins
Micky also confirmed that he had no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday with everybody available for selection.
"Obviously he (James) has scored a tremendous amount of important goals for us at critical times," said Micky.

"The pleasing thing is we know James can keep improving and there is much improving to be done and that can only be exciting for the club and the fans as having a good young striker.

"He will know that we will keep prodding him and keep pushing him to keep improving so he can keep helping this football club moving forward."

Micky also spoke about Shrews' top goalscorer James Collins, who the manager insists can still improve to help the club to continue to progress.
"With one game to go we are over the line and have given ourselves a chance of winning the title, which is a fantastic position to be in," said Micky.

"Winning the league is what it is all about. Of course the objective was promotion, but with a game to go to be head-to-head to win the league is a terrific position to be in.

“We will be approaching the game like we approach every game.

"There is still work to be done. There are things we still want to learn, there is no way we will let contentment into the building and we just want to keep learning.

“Hopefully that continues this week and we are expecting a performance on Saturday and if we play well we will expect a result."

Although Micky is just pleased that his side are still in a position to win the league on the final day of the 2014/15 campaign.

The Shrews are two points leaders Burton Albion, who travel to Cambridge United at the weekend, going into the final day and know victory, with a slip-up for Burton, would see Town take the title.

Town host the Pilgrims at the Greenhous Meadow for the final game of the season (3pm kick-off) having already secured promotion to League One.

Manager Micky Mellon insists Shrewsbury Town are still in a 'terrific' position to win the Sky Bet League 2 title ahead of Saturday's game against Plymouth Argyle.
