Martin Woods On Wolves Draw

26 July 2015

Midfielder Hails Strength Of Shrewsbury Squad

"I’m really enjoying it,” added Martin.

"The boys have been superb. They make me welcome and are very welcoming to all of the new boys who are all settling in well.

"It’s testament to the boys who are here that make that period very comfortable so it’s been good."

And the midfielder, who started the game in the middle of the park with captain Liam Lawrence, admitted he is enjoying life back in England and his recent spell north of the border.
"I feel alright and that 65 minutes will do me the world of good," said the 29-year-old.

"I’ve only played 45 minutes per game up until now so I’m getting there.

"There’s a couple more games left before the start of the season so hopefully I can pick it up and get a few more minutes under my belt and take it from there."

The former Sunderland and Doncaster player was also delighted to step up his pre-season preparations, having played over an hour against a very fit Wolves team.

"I felt as if the boys went out and were really organised,” said Woods.

"We stuck to the game plan and I would say a draw was a fair result, if not us maybe sneaking it with the chances we created.

"We had a few chances in the first half as well.

"Obviously they changed their team completely in the second-half and brought on fresh legs which was a bit of a test for us at the start because they were really fresh and we’ve had 45 in but that was something we had to get our head around and the boys adapted well.

"With the subs that came on it was a really good squad display.

"With the work we’ve done in training it feels like anyone that comes in now knows what the manager wants.

" I feel all the boys in the squad are capable of going on and doing the same job."

And Town’s summer acquisition from Ross County believes a lot of the credit should go to his side’s strength in depth.

It was Town’s third testing game in a week following games against Cardiff and Birmingham City respectively.

Summer signing Martin Woods hailed the strength of the Shrewsbury Town squad following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Wolves at Greenhous Meadow.
