Wesolowski On Gillingham Clash

22 April 2016

Midfielder Wants To Play Part In The Run-In


  "You’ve got to keep positive and keep thinking that you are going to come back stronger and that’s the way I got through it," said Wesolowski.
 
"I knew there would be a stage that I would come back before the end of the season and to get out there still with a few games to go and a lot to fight for.
 
"I’m just hoping that I can help the team achieve their goals for the year."



 
Wesolowski now wants to help Town achieve their goal for the season after returning from his ACL injury.

"They have been consistent, but we have had times where we’ve had patches of it," he said.
 
"If we can take those patches and expand it to a whole season, then we would do pretty good because we are capable of being that good on our day.
 
"In the end, we have to make sure we go out there with the right mindset.

"It is a big game but we’ve also got to play with freedom and express ourselves because that’s when you play your best football."

 
Saturday's opponents have consistently been getting results throughout the season and that hasn’t gone unnoticed by the Australian.
 
"Gillingham will be a tough game, they are a good side and it's also a tough place to go,” said Wesolowski.
 
"It’s a big game for us and it’s a big game for them.
 
"In this league, anyone can beat anyone on any given day so we have to make sure that we’re on top of things and ready to go."


And Wesolowski, who made his return to the first-team starting line-up on Tuesday night after his long-term injury, believes Town are capable of picking up all three points if they perform well.

Promotion-hopefuls Gillingham are currently sixth in the League One table but have been beaten in their last two home matches.

Town take on the Gills at Priestfield Stadium in Sky Bet League 1 at the weekend (3pm kick-off) looking to pick up a result which will move them further away from the relegation zone.
 
James Wesolowski wants to play his part in Shrewsbury Town's remaining fixtures this season and believes Saturday's game at Gillingham will be tough.
