Danny Coyne looks ahead to Town's FA Cup replay against Salford City

Shrewsbury Town are back on the road tomorrow night as they head to the Peninsula Stadium to play Salford City in a First Round Replay of the Emirates FA Cup.

Danny Coyne will be looking for his team to push forward with their impressive form after a couple of convincing performances.

Rochdale were Town’s last opponents in a rollercoaster 3-2 victory. Danny spoke to Shrewsweb about how pleased he was with his teams performance.

“Yeah a great win, the lads were different class. A great win at home like we wanted, it just lifted the spirits of the lads and sets us up for the game against Salford on Wednesday.

Danny was really impressed with the teams character throughout the game.

“Definitely, we said to the lads at half-time, stick to what we’ve been working on, keep your composure, even if we did go a goal behind we knew what we were able to do and what we had been working on. They did it, they kept their composure and we were still creating chances and we got the win in the end which is great.

“We've been working on how we can create chances and have more strikes at goal and give them a bit more freedom in those areas and to not be afraid to shoot.

“I think earlier on in the season we were a little bit hesitant when we got ourselves into areas, about pulling the trigger. So now we’ve been saying to them, just go and shoot, what are you waiting for. If it’s there to be hit, hit it.

“Every three points is a big three points and every league game is important. That’s how we approach every game it doesn’t matter who we are playing.”

Danny has been pleased with training so far this week and was quick to praise the team’s efforts.

“Yes we trained today everyone was lively, everyone was at it. We just did a little bit of work on shape and a little bit of detail on tomorrow. Everyone’s come away from that alright.”

Salford City are Town’s next opponents in the first round replay of the Emirates FA Cup. Danny told Shrewsweb what he expects from the opposition.

“I think we saw when we played them at home, they’re a team that like to play out from the back, they’re quite expansive. They’ve got a good squad, a good team and good staff.

“Everything’s based around lads who have had league experience, the manager, the backroom staff, they’re all completely the same.

“It’s well documented how the clubs been in the past and what they’ve got with their ambitions and where they want to be and see themselves in a few years time. It’s all geared for that club to be successful, so it’s going to be tough for us.

“You’ve got an idea of what to expect, we’ve done our homework on how we think we should approach the game, we’ve got our ideas on how we should approach the game and how we think things might pan out, but it’s football at the end of the day and it’s the FA Cup so you never know what to expect sometimes.

“They had a great win on the weekend as well, they can score freely, like I said they’re a decent team. The front two with Rooney and Gaffney, they can score goals and their movement is good as well.

“Clever players are much more difficult to play against. When everyone says they’re a conference team, they’re not really with the squad and players that they’ve got."
