Sam Ricketts pre Wolves

25 January 2019

Sam Ricketts looks ahead to Town's FA Cup clash with Wolves.

Shrewsbury Town return to FA Cup action with a fourth-round tie with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Town progressed into the next round with a 3-2 win over Stoke and will welcome Wolves to the Montgomery Waters Meadow this weekend.

Sam Ricketts was pleased with the last FA Cup tie and feels his team will be able to utilise that momentum.

“We were the most clinical I have seen us against Stoke,” said Sam. “They are the levels we need to hit more often than not.

“If you’re going to win games you have to be clinical and the chances to score in the bigger games are going to be fewer.

“When you do get a chance you need to make sure you try and take it.

“I had a fair idea the change at half-time would help us. The players showed their ability to carry out what I wanted them to do.

“For that 10 or 15 minutes our final action and last ball was spot on. To win the match after two games shows it wasn’t a one off game.”

Sam is looking forward to taking on one of his former clubs but knows his team will have a tough test ahead.

“It will be a good game with a great atmosphere,” said Sam. “It is something to look forward to.

“We will approach the game the right way and play to our strengths and try to cause Wolves problems.

“We won’t change our preparation too much. I will focus on what we need to be good at in the game.

“I will touch on what they try and do obviously and we will work on trying to nullify that and capitalise.

“It will be a good game at home as well. It gives us a good opportunity in a good atmosphere, which has caught the imagination for a number of years.

“It’s something to look forward to, something we will relish and we will have a good go at it.”
