Matt Tootle On Chesterfield Clash

17 August 2015

Defender Says Mood Is Good After Last Two Games

"I see Shrewsbury being a team who can challenge," he said.

"I wanted to come to a side who I felt were signing well, and having spoken to the gaffer and Jacko and looking at the signings they've brought in it was obvious for me really.

"I had a little bit of interest from other clubs as well. When players say it was an easy choice it really was an easy choice with it being local for me as well.

"It was an easy choice for me to come to a team who I feel are going to be challenging."


Tootle signed for Town in the summer from Crewe Alexandra and admits it was an easy decision to move to Greenhous Meadow.

"It's good (the mood) and it's a lot better after the week we've had," said

"The Millwall one was disappointing because I think we knew we were as good if not better than them.

"We just didn't quite get going in that one but then on Tuesday (at Blackburn) and Saturday (at Bradford) we proved what a good side we are.

"Going into Tuesday now I think we know that if we play our game then we'll hopefully get our first win of the season in the league."


And Tootle believes Town proved just how good they are in the last two games.

Despite suffering a narrow defeat at home to Millwall on the opening day of the season, Shrewsbury have responded by knocking Championship side Blackburn Rovers out of the Capital One Cup away from home and battling to a hard-earned point at Bradford City.

Town host the Spireites at Greenhous Meadow in Sky Bet League 1 (7.45pm kick-off) looking to pick up their first three points of the season.

Defender Matt Tootle says the mood in the Shrewsbury Town camp is good heading into Tuesday night's clash with Chesterfield.
