Assistant Boss looks ahead to Posh game
Shrewsbury Town Assistant Manager, Chris Doig, admits that they may use Tuesday night’s game against Peterborough as another opportunity to experiment.
Town tried out a different system against Bury on Saturday and whilst Doig believes that certain aspects worked better than others, he isn’t afraid of trying something different again.
“It was okay in patches”, said Chris.
“To be fair to the lads we didn’t really do any work on it, it was kind of thrown at them last minute, so from that side of it I thought they took certain things on very well, but there were other things that we’d want to do a lot more work on and be better at.
“It was an opportunity to do it and I think it would be amiss of us if we didn’t take opportunities like that with the position we are in currently. It was good to see how it worked and it was something that we might look to do more of.
“We had quite a few miss training today, so I couldn’t tell you the squad as it stands, let alone the team. We will have a discussion later on today and see how people are tomorrow morning, but we are looking at all things really with an eye to the future and what we think might give us more impetus in games.”
Peterborough United are the visitors to the Montgomery Waters Meadow tomorrow night and Doig is well aware of the attacking threats they pose.
“They’ve got some very good players”, Chris admitted.
“They will probably be a bit disappointed that they are in the position that they are. I think they will have certainly expected to be higher in the league and they’ve definitely got the players to be higher in the league, but for whatever reason they’re not.
“They will be high energy, they will be on the front foot and they will have a go for sure. They are obviously fighting for that Play-Off spot for them come the end of the season, so it will be a big game for them and an important three points.
“If they get that three points tomorrow it puts them right back in the picture, so they will be at it, no doubt about it. They will be quite direct, but they’ve got some good players and when they get in attacking positions they can cause you a lot of problems.”
