Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's away Sky Bet League One fixture against Swindon Town.

Shrewsbury Town travel to The County Ground to face Swindon Town this weekend for another Sky Bet League One fixture.

Town will be looking to bounce back after their 1-0 defeat against Crewe Alexandra in the week. Salop are still without Steve Cotterill as he recovers from hospital. Assistant Manager, Aaron Wilbraham will be looking to guide Town towards three points against John Sheridan's men. 

Update on the Gaffer:

“He’s getting there, he’s getting better every day and he’s desperate to get out of hospital but I’m sure it won’t be too long before he returns home which will hopefully be some time in the future.

“Everyone knows how serious the virus is and he had a strong case of it. But we have seen signs of improvements when he spoke to the boys the other night on the phone in the dressing room, everyone said how much stronger his voice sounded and that was just from Saturday to Tuesday so his health seems to be frequently improving which is really positive.”

On Saturday’s opponents:

“They’ve done well in the games we’ve watched them play, they play some good football and like I said leading into the Crewe game, we have to be on our guard definitely. We have to go there and stick to what we know and go with a game plan to hopefully return with a positive result.

“John Sheridan was actually the youth team manager when I went to Oldham on loan in 2004 so I do know him fairly well. He’s an experienced coach and he’s done well wherever he’s been.”

On new signing Curtis Main and David Davis:

“He trained with us for the first time today and he looked really sharp and obviously he’s been playing in Scotland so he is ready to go. He produced some good touches, good finishes and he’s a proper centre forward. He’s a bullish kind of player, works hard for the team and he’s keen to listen and learn which is really good for us.”

“David had his first taste of action the other night and he looked good we had to get his legs more up to speed and we want to make sure he’s ready and his fitness is up to scratch.”
