Dom Smith On Bury Clash

18 March 2016

Defender Wants Repeat Of Reverse Fixture

"Wales is my second home after Shrewsbury and to be called up is an honour," he said.

"I want to do my best when I go away there.

"I've got lots of experience to get and will improve in the years to come as well.

"Shrewsbury has taught me to be commanding and vocal as a defender."

Smith has also been called up to the Wales squad for their upcoming 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifiers and believes it will be another great experience for him.

"The last time we played them we won 2-0 so if we can keep our mindsets back to that and keep everything comfortable, do things basic and we should do okay," he said.

"I think we can go even better.

"We've showed the potential against the big teams like Burton (Albion) and Coventry (City).

"If we can beat them and they're up the league then why can't we push towards there."

And 20-year-old Smith, who recently signed a new contract with Town, believes Town can beat the Shakers with the same mindset they had in the reverse fixture at Greenhous Meadow in October.

Town take on the Shakers at Gigg Lane in Sky Bet League 1 at the weekend (3pm kick-off) looking for their fourth victory in March.

Defender Dom Smith believes Shrewsbury Town have shown the potential to be in a higher league position ahead of Saturday's trip to Bury.
