Hurst: It's a collective effort

29 September 2017

Gaffer would love to see big crowd against Scunthorpe

Shrewsbury Town boss Paul Hurst has admitted his would be nice to get another good crowd on Saturday.

Over 8,000 fans came to Town’s last home game against Blackburn, including over 6,500 home fans.

Hurst is hopeful that a number of those fans will return for Town’s game against Scunthorpe tomorrow and believes they can make the difference.

“Although it wasn’t a win, I think it was as close to the feeling you can get to winning on the day”, Paul said of the Blackburn game.

“We were winning for large parts of the game and I think the atmosphere, the feeling in the ground and the fact that so many waited for the final whistle and still clapped the players off is an indication that they were pleased with what they’ve seen.

“It would be great if we could get similar support at home again and get behind the team again because they genuinely do make a difference if you are behind in a game or if you are tiring.

“If everything’s fine and you are flying you maybe don’t need the crowd as much, but if something goes against you, like a refereeing decision, then the crowd get up, the lads find that extra yard, that little bit of determination and I do feel it's a collective effort.

“Ultimately, it’s the players that go out on the pitch, but I try and have a little bit of influence and the fans fall into that category as well, so hopefully they will turn up in their numbers again and cheer the team on.”
