Omar Beckles Pre Sunderland

19 October 2018

Omar Beckles looks ahead to Town's fixture against Sunderland.

Shrewsbury Town take on Sunderland this weekend at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Town will be looking to bounce back from a narrow defeat away from home at Fleetwood Town.

Omar Beckles was disappointed with the last result and hopes his team can register a positive performance against the Black Cats.

“We were disappointed,” Beckles said. “It wasn’t what we wanted – we built up a bit of momentum in the previous few games, so we kind of wanted to build on that.

“It was kind of a kick in the teeth when we wanted to build, so majorly, majorly disappointed.

“We want that quick turn around so you can move on from the loss and what was a really poor first half.

“You kind of end up moping about and thinking about it to much.

“We aren’t overwhelmingly excited about how it has gone so far, but it’s always good for confidence to know we are picking up points and performing decent. It shows it’s heading in the right direction.”

Beckles is expecting a tough test from Sunderland, but hopes his team can take the game to the visitors.

“It’s not a game I’m worrying about,” said Beckles. “It was like that for us last season - with that kind of underdog role.

“I think naturally the lads will get themselves up for it. It’s a big occasion – they have sold out their section, so you know it’s going to be a ledge atmosphere.

“I’m expecting it to be a really good game. I think it’s natural for lads at this level to want to prove themselves and Sunderland are probably the biggest scalp in the league.

“It’s going to be tough for Sunderland where ever they go – there is going to be players wanting to prove a point.”
