Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's clash with Ipswich Town

11 February 2021

Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's Sky Bet League One clash with Ipswich Town.

Shrewsbury Town welcome Ipswich Town to Montgomery Waters Meadow this weekend for another Sky Bet League One fixture.

Salop will be looking to make it a trio of wins following on from league victories over Swindon Town and Sunderland AFC.

Aaron Wilbraham is looking forward to the test and notes the Shrews squad is feeling positive going into the tie against the Tractor Boys.

Update on the Gaffer: 

"I am in contact with the Gaffer every single day and he's had a tough week. The hospital has decided to give him a three-day course of high dose steroids intravenously. They are hoping that will give him a boost so he can kick on and recover.

"He's having that done and that will hopefully send him in the right direction. He'll still be in the hospital for the rest of this week and hopefully next week he can come home. We have to wait and see how he recovers.

"It's incredible how much he's putting his body on the line for the Club. Other people in his position would take time away to recover but he's not like that - he's constantly on it. He's been looking at footage of Ipswich and he's doing everything he can to help."

On the visit of Ipswich:

"The lads have shown great character recently - especially when we went a goal down against Sunderland. Looking at the footage this morning, they all work for each other and show that team mentality. Everyone knows their jobs going onto the pitch and that's the main thing.

"Paul Lambert is my old manager from Norwich and he's someone I always speak highly of. I know he's a great manager and their lads will be fired up. He has high standards and we've looked at them in the same way we would with any team. We have to be on our guard and be ready for the game."
