Leutwiler On Burton Albion Clash

28 August 2015

Goalkeeper Confident That Clean Sheet Is Coming

“I really like the games coming thick and fast," said the goalkeeper.

"We are footballers so it is great to play football as much as we can. I enjoy playing the games more than training so I am happy with all the matches."

Despite the fixtures being coming thick and fast for Town, Leutwiler admits he likes to play as much as possible.

"I think our home form last season was down to us being one of the best teams in the league.

"That has changed now we are in a higher league so we have to fight more for every point. The home support here is great and continues to be great so hopefully that will continue.”

"We had a great start last year in the league.

"We beat them (Burton) at home last season but lost away," said Leutwiler.

"They are a strong team that plays good football so it will be tough for us. We need a win so we will give everything to make sure we get it.”

“We just have to keep going like we did on Tuesday.

"We played some great football in that game so we need to keep that with us and keep working hard and the results will come.

And Leutwilere insists Shrewsbury will do everything they can to pick up their first league win of the season.

Town beat Burton 1-0 in the home fixture last season but suffered a reversal of the same scoreline at the Pirelli Stadium.

"We are working on the defence at the minute," he said.

"We are a league higher so it is harder but we are hoping to get our first clean sheet soon.

"The quality of players who we are playing against is much better in this league so we need time to adapt."

And Leutwiler, who kept an incredible 26 clean sheets in all competitions last season, admits the challenge is made harder by playing in a higher division.

Micky Mellon's side will also be looking for their first shutout of the 2015/16 campaign.

Town take on Burton Albion in Sky Bet League 1 at Greenhous Meadow on Saturday (3pm kick-off) looking for their first win of the season.

Goalkeeper Jayson Leutwiler is confident Shrewsbury Town's first clean sheet of the season is on its way.
