Jordan Clark On Northampton Town Clash

27 February 2015

One Game At A Time For Midfielder

“One hundred per cent yeah, we showed it against Preston in the FA Cup when we played some fantastic stuff and were unfortunate not to get the result.”

And Clark is also optimistic if Town do achieve promotion then they could compete in League 1.

“And if we do that we know here with our squad and our capability we can win the league so that is what we are aiming for.”

“We are never unbeatable, it’s a tough league so wherever we go whether it be at home or away we know there will be a battle first and foremost and then its down to us to play the nice football then create the chances and score the goals.

“It is a nice thing for him to say but we know its not going to be easy and we will have to keep our feet on the ground and keep working hard in training and obviously keep putting in performances to get results.

And although Northampton boss Chris Wilder this week suggested Shrewsbury are title favourites Clark nevertheless insists he, the squad and the staff will not get carried away.

“I have enjoyed it this season, but have obviously a little disappointed not to have been playing that much over the last few months but the lads who are in there have done well so I can’t moan as that’s why we are so high up the league.”

“So I now I have to keep going, keep working hard like I have been doing and try stay in the team and then win more games like we have doing.

“I got my chance two weeks ago against Wimbledon and I thought I played quite well and the manager seems quite pleased with me and we won” said Clark.

And Clark, 21, who signed last summer from his hometown club Barnsley, is optimistic of recovering a regular place in the team on the closing stretch of the campaign

The Shrews welcome the Cobblers, who are currently eleventh, to Greenhous Meadow on Saturday (3pm kick-off) in Sky Bet League 2, as they look to make their place in the top three extra secure.

Winger Jordan Clark is buoyant over Shrewsbury Town’s promotion chances but insists the club must continue take it one game at a time as they prepare to take on Northampton this weekend.
