Josh Vela previews Town's fixture with Wigan Athletic

20 April 2021

Josh Vela previews Town's Sky Bet League One clash 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.

Josh Vela is looking forward to the test and feels the fixture is a good opportunity to get back to winning ways.

On the fixture:

"We were all disappointed that we lost the game at the weekend but the mood around the camp is ok and we want to put in a good performance against Wigan. We all trained well this week and we are looking forward to the fixture.

"We have to show resilience and fight back tomorrow night against Wigan. We need to show a reaction because last Saturday wasn't good enough. We need to improve the performance and everyone has to take it up a level because Wigan are doing well.

"They have some really good players and they're starting to do well. They were bottom last time we played them so we are expecting a tough test. Callum Lang is there. He's a good lad and a good player. He's gone back there and scored eight goals - he's done well.

"We can't rest and we have to finish the season as strong as possible. People are playing for their futures and we want to finish as high as possible. I am feeling good going into the game but we need to get the win."
