Jack Grimmer On Peterborough United Clash

29 April 2016

Defender Expects Tough Peterborough Test

“I want to go out and have a good performance,” said the defender.

“You know, pay back some of the support they have shown me since I have come back here from the first minute that I announced that I would be returning.

“They have welcomed me with open arms and it has been better than I could have hoped for.

“I’m hoping that we give a good send off to the fans on Saturday.”


But Grimmer wants to show the fans a good performance in response to all the support he has received throughout his return.

“I expect them to come out fighting,” said Grimmer.

“You know, they recently lost their manager so as any team that does that, you expect a reaction from the players.

“We are desperate for the win, we’re still not safe in any stretch of the imagination.

“We don’t want to rest on the points we have gotten already so we need to go out and make it safe with our own performances and we can do that on Saturday.

“With it being the last home match, I especially want to give the fans something to cheer about in the last game of the season.”


The defender isn’t expecting an easy game for the Shrews even after Peterborough recently losing their manager.

“I think if you’d ask any of the teams around us, they would want to be in our position,” said Jack.

“Without being complacent, the job is not done. You go into it on Tuesday and you don’t get a different result, maybe you could ease off.

“The points aren’t there yet and the other teams can catch us and as long as that is the case, we will keep fighting.”


And Jack thinks that the Shrews have the best looking run-in towards the end of the season compared to the teams around them.

Town take on the Posh in a Sky Bet League 1 clash at Greenhous Meadow (3:00pm kick-off) and will be looking for three crucial points that would ensure safety in the third tier of English football for next season.

Defender Jack Grimmer is expecting the last home game of the season to be a tough one against Peterborough.
