Gaffer looks ahead to final home game of the normal season
Paul Hurst’s men take on an already relegated MK Dons this Saturday at the Montgomery Waters Meadow in the penultimate game of the regular season.
Hurst’s men will be looking to end the regular season on a high and look to gather momentum prior to their first Play-Off game.
Hurst has been experimenting with his squad over the past few games with a look to giving players an opportunity to impress before the first Play-Off games, he said: “All we have been doing is looking at one or two options in terms of systems and personnel.
“Overall, it has just been to give everyone the best chance to be ready for these Play-Offs. We have one more league game to go before we get to that point but I am glad we’re almost there.
“Were trying to kind of push the buttons of certain individuals and the group overall. We’re almost at the point where it is make or break in terms of finishing the season off. Now we’re looking forward to putting the best Shrewsbury Town out there and trying to give the best performances possible.
Hurst feels it is important to try and win the game on Saturday and keep pushing forward and end the season on a positive note, he said: “I want to win the game, we want to get to 90 points. I want us to play better in longer periods of the game than what we have done.
“I’d like to finish the regular season on a high in terms of getting a win in front of our own fans. We will applaud the fans. MK Dons are certainly a very good size club; they’ve got some very good players.
“We spoke about MK Dons in terms of what team are they going to put out. If I were in that position I probably wouldn’t be looking at involving players who may not be at the club next year, whether that’s loan players, players who are out of contract or players that you are going to release.”
