Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's clash with Peterborough United

28 January 2021

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

Shrewsbury Town welcome Peterborough United to Montgomery Waters Meadow this weekend for the latest Sky Bet League One fixture.

The Shrews will be looking for a return to winning ways against an in-form Peterborough side who currently third in the Sky Bet League One table.

Prior to looking ahead to the upcoming fixture, Town Assistant Manager Aaron Wilbraham provided an update on Steve Cotterill.

Update on the Gaffer:

"He is still in the hospital. He had a bit of a bad week again, to be honest. I haven't spoken to him much this week but he's still in the hospital. He's feeling a bit down about not being able to be around the place - he misses the lads terribly. 

"The main thing for him is to get back fit and healthy. Everything else is secondary. He's still heavily involved as much as he can be."

On Peterborough United:

"It will be a tough test and they are a good side - they play a similar formation to us. When a team is flying high, you want to compete against them. We have stood up well against the tougher teams in the league this year and we will be looking to do it again on Saturday.

"Jonson Clarke-Harris has a tremendous left foot but our lads have done very well against some top strikers. They will have to be on their game Saturday. We look at their dangers and make the lads aware - we always do that.

"We prepare in the same way we have done every game. We go into games concentrated on ourselves and the things we can do. The game being called off on Tuesday gave us an opportunity to have a good session. The lads have worked very hard."

Update on David Davis:

"He can come back on Monday but we will have to see regarding the game on Tuesday. We are looking forward to having him in the building."
