Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's Wigan Athletic fixture

Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's Sky Bet League One home fixture with Wigan Athletic.

Shrewsbury Town welcome Wigan Athletic to Montgomery Waters Meadow tomorrow evening for the latest Sky Bet League One fixture.

Salop will be looking for a return to winning ways with the visit of the Latics after losing out 0-2 to Doncaster Rovers last time out.

Town Assistant Manager Aaron Wilbraham expects a tough test from the away side and admits he is impressed with the club's resurgence under Leam Ricardson.

On the fixture:

"We always want to bounce back from defeat and tomorrow is another opportunity to do that. The lads will want to put the last couple of results right with the visit of Wigan. We want to take the good bits from the recent performances and cut out any mistakes. We can't give teams leg-up but sometimes those freak goals happen.

"Wigan have picked up some really good results recently and they've given themselves a chance of staying up. They're fighting for their lives and we know it's going to be a really tough game. They have been on a really good run and their results have been great.

"They have a good squad and they are starting to pick up the results they want. They loo strong and organised so we have to make sure we are ready to do what we are good at. We need to fight like we know we can do to get the three points.

"The lads have spoken about Callum Lang and mentioned how hard he works. I hear he's got a good attitude and he can score a goal. They have some dangerous players and we certainly have to be aware of them.

"The lads are in good spirits. We don't get too high with the wins and too low with the losses. We were unfortunate to be without a couple of players for the last game. Everyone came through the last game fine and we are looking forward to the fixture."
