Sam Ricketts previews Town's trip to Peterborough United.

Shrewsbury Town are on the road again this weekend as Sam Ricketts’ men take on Peterborough United.

Town will be looking to go three games unbeaten and will be hoping to leave the London Road Stadium with a win.

Sam is pleased his team are unbeaten in two games heading into the fixture and hopes to see his team go a step further and take all three points.

“That’s two games unbeaten now,” said Town’s manager. “We want to get some wins in there as well - there is plenty to work on.

“They were a decent side and try to move the ball round well and the fact we nullified them for the vast majority of the game is good.

“There are many things we want to improve and it’s definitely not a bad point given the results around us.

“That’s two games unbeaten now and we want to keep that rolling and put some wins in there as well.

“Wins will be the big difference because it’s the added points on from drawing games.

“You would always take drawing games and not losing compared to draws and losses.

“This week we have been able to work on a few things to hopefully improve us in the weeks and months to come.”

Sam is expecting a tough game from the home side but feels his team have more than enough to win the game.

““All our focus is on the next game.” Said Sam. “They are a good side with very good attacking players.

“They try to move the ball quickly and have changed shape recently with the change of manager.

“It will be a good game against a team with some of the best players in the league.

“It will be a good test for us but something we will relish. We will go there with a clear idea on how to get something from the game.”

Sam has also confirmed Luke Fogarty has a more active scouting role within the club to aid the coaching department.

“Luke came in at the turn of the year just to add to the scouting and recruitment department,” said Sam.

“He isn’t replacing anyone’s role – he’s just adding to it. He will be brining his knowledge and another pair of eyes.

“He will look at the opposition as well, so it’s another aspect of us trying to be better prepared.”
