Micky Mellon On Doncaster Rovers Clash

20 October 2015

Manager Glad To Have Another Game So Swiftly

Micky admits he has had to throw in younger players in the squad following the departures of players to other clubs and injuries.

  “I am just glad there is another game so quickly,” said Micky.

“On the weekend you suffer after a loss, I reflect on what went wrong and it is very difficult.

“The game on Tuesday gives us a chance to get the defeat out of our system as soon as possible and move on and put things right.

“We have to be wary of Doncaster but we have to be wary of everybody. We are working very hard on the training pitch to keep moving it forward but every game is tough in this league.”

And Micky admits his side must be as wary of Doncaster as they are of any other team in the league.

Town host Rovers in the Sky Bet League 1 clash at Greenhous Meadow (7.45pm kick-off) looking to bounce back from the weekend defeat to Scunthorpe United.

Manager Micky Mellon is relieved Shrewsbury Town are back in action so swiftly against Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night. “We have had to rely on some younger players like Dom Smith but I feel he has done very well,” said Micky.

“Zak Whitbread will hopefully be close to full fitness soon.

“I think he needs another week of training before we can start him.

“We want him available as soon as possible because he is a great player.

“Ian Black is also not quite at full fitness. He missed seven months of football and didn’t do pre-season so that is why he hasn’t played many minutes.”
