Micky Mellon On Gillingham Clash

21 April 2016

Manager Wants Consistency Over 90 Minutes

Manager Micky Mellon is confident Shrewsbury Town can pick up an important result at Gillingham - if they remain consistent throughout the match.

Midfielder James Wallace also comes back into contention after being unavailable against his parent club Sheffield United on Tuesday night.

Micky has no fresh injury updates to worry about. Junior Brown and Mickey Demetriou remain out until the end of the season.
"We come back in ready to work hard and participate in the games and fight for results and we will never change from that," he said.

"A win would change things massively and we are aware of that and we will prepare a team that can do that.

"It has been a tough season since it started and we knew it was going to be like that. It isn’t something that is stopping us from sleeping at night, though.

"You always want influences in the group available when the games are coming to the final furlong.

"You want them all available so it is massively important they are available and playing well."

The Town boss is confident his side can pick up the points needed to move away from the relegation zone.

"They are very athletic and they have a lot of energy in their team," said Micky.

"They will work very hard on and off the ball and make it very difficult for us.

"That has enabled them to be at the right end of the table so they have stuck to that.

"They have good players who go out and get them results.

"We have shown that we can match them, but we have to be consistent and do it over ninety minutes.

"We will do what we always do and try and get a victory."

And Micky feels Town can match Justin Edinburgh's side as they did in the 2-2 draw at Greenhous Meadow earlier in the season.

Gillingham are sixth in the League One table, level on points with seventh-placed Barnsley, but have lost their last two at home.

Town take on the Gills at Priestfield Stadium in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday (3pm kick-off) looking to pick up the points to steer them further away from the relegation zone.
