Micky Mellon On Burton Albion Clash

27 August 2015

Manager Insists Town Will Be Well Prepared

"We have won one, we have beaten Blackburn and we have had four of the last five games away from home," said Micky.

"Four very tough ones. We have to bear that in mind. We have lost two out of the four but it is unusual for us to lose home games.

"We don’t want to lose home games. I absolutely know we will win home games.

"If we can carry on playing the way we are away from home and picking up points and can marry that up with home performances and results we will be fine."

Micky is confident Shrewsbury's first league win of the season will come quickly despite the four games that have already gone.
"They still have the same gameplan, if you like," said Micky.

"We know what they are all about, we know a lot about their personnel and we know the manager well.

"They have good players and good threats from wide areas.

"We know what their main threats are and we know it is going to be a very tough game. We believe in ourselves and we know we have players who will cause them problems at the other end of the pitch."

Although Micky believes his side will still know what to expect when the Brewers visit Shropshire.

The Brewers have added 12 new players to their squad for the League One campaign.

"We were both promoted and both into a new challenge, Burton albeit have made probably a better start than us, wins wise," said Micky.

"We are looking forward to locking horns with them again.

"We know each other very well and I believe I know the style they will come here and try to play.

"We will be well prepared for the game and will try to pick the best team possible, as we always do, without being reckless and the best shape possible in order to give us the best chance of winning.

"If we get that right I believe we have a good chance of winning."

And Micky insists his side will be prepared for the clash at the weekend, with Burton having won three of their opening four fixtures and sitting fifth in the table.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's Burton were promoted as champions of League Two last season, with Town and Albion both recording 1-0 victories over each other at home in the 2014/15 campaign.

Town host the Brewers in the Sky Bet League 1 clash at Greenhous Meadow (3pm kick-off) at the weekend looking to pick up their first league win of the season.

Manager Micky Mellon is looking forward to seeing Shrewsbury Town 'lock horns' with Burton Albion on Saturday.
