David Longwell previews Town's clash with Doncaster

21 December 2020

David Longwell gives his thoughts on Town's Sky Bet League One clash with Doncaster Rovers.

Shrewsbury Town are on the road for a third consecutive away game as Salop take on Doncaster Rovers.

The Shrews will travel to the Keepmoat Stadium in search of three points after victories over Hull City and Lincoln City.

Town Coach David Longwell is expecting a tough test from Donny but hopes to see a continuation of their form from previous Salop performances.

On preparations and the fixture:

“There is a good energy about the players and they were all keen to play the game ahead but that extra couple of days of rest might help. Today the lads have been really good. I can’t credit the lads enough for how they have responded to the Manager coming in.

“We went to watch Doncaster on Saturday against Burton. They are a footballing team and like to pass the ball about. They play with a good style. The Manager knows Darren Moore well and speaks highly about him.

“You can see that he’s done a good job with Doncaster. It’s a really good challenge for the players but we are confident that we can do well. We will respect they are a good team and are doing well.

“We want the lads to take on what they have done recently. Their attitude to learning is second to none. They have done well and recent results say a lot about how well they have worked.

“The lads take things on and go out there wanting to win games of football. There is a good mentality about them and you can see that every day - we want to continue getting results.”

On his role with the first team:

“It has been good. I have been involved with senior teams before up in Scotland and all I want to do is support and assist the Manager. I’ve tried to make sure that things that need doing get done.

“It’s always difficult coming in somewhere and getting your feet under the table. My job is to support him and support the players – it was the same for when Aaron came in.

“I wanted to help him and create an easy transition. The most important thing is that the players go onto the pitch as best prepared as possible. We want to win games and the Manager has had that response.”
