Andy Mangan On Fleetwood Town Clash

6 February 2016

Striker Putting Friendships Aside For Sunday's Clash

"I just want to continue and help the side, so they’ll be no targets," he said.

"You just want to be consistent in your performances.

"Could I be better? Yes, I want to be better every game.

"I should have more goals but I’m playing a level above what I’ve played before so I’m getting used to things still and hopefully more is to come from myself."

Mangan already has three goals since returning to the Club  but revealed he won’t be setting any targets for the current campaign.

"It’s just about belief," continued the 29-year-old.

"The fans were great on Tuesday and if we can cut out the silly mistakes we’ll find that level of consistency to move up the league.

"This game is no more or less important than any of the games we’ve played so far. It’s an old cliché, but it’s true.

"Every game’s important, whether you’re at the bottom or the top, and we’ll be doing everything we can from now until Sunday to get the right result."

The forward, like many at the club, believes Town’s consistency has let them down this season, but he knows what is required to improve.

"It’s the first time I’ll be playing against them and I’ve still got some friends there, like the chairman," he said.

"I had some great memories at the club, as did the gaffer, but we’re obviously going there to win so it’ll be friendships to the side and ready for battle.

"When I was there, there were 13 scousers so it was like going to work with your mates for me, and we won the league and got a lot of records coming out the Conference.

"But we didn’t get the right result on Tuesday [against Southend] so hopefully we can put that right on Sunday. We’ve been working diligently towards that."

And Mangan, who played for Fleetwood for two seasons between 2011 and 2013, is ready to put his memories on the back burner in order to pick up a result on Sunday.

Shrewsbury Town will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday’s defeat to Southend United when they take on the Cod Army at Highbury Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Andy Mangan insists he’ll be putting friendships aside as he returns to former club Fleetwood Town on Sunday afternoon.
