Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's clash with AFC Wimbledon

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

Shrewsbury Town return to Montgomery Waters Meadow tomorrow evening to face off with AFC Wimbledon in Sky Bet League One competition.

Town will be determined to return to winning ways with the visit of Mark Robinson's Dons but will face a stern test from the visitors.

Prior to previewing the next fixture, Town's Assistant Manager, Aaron Wilbraham, provided an update regarding the Salop Gaffer Steve Cotterill.

Update on the Gaffer:

"I have a bit of a negative update on the Gaffer. The Manager has been re-admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. He's been bad since the middle of last week and I could tell with his breathing and coughing. He was admitted yesterday and he's back on the ward in Bristol.

"He's the type of man to never miss a day of work. I know how strong he is and how tough he is. He will deal with this with no problem - I am just gutted for him. He never takes a day off, he works every day. The fact he's had to have so much time off through no fault of his own is disappointing for him. He had a couple of setbacks whilst in hospital and this is another one he has to deal with.

"We are all supporting the Gaffer and hoping he can be back with us as soon as possible."

On the test of the Dons:

"They are a strong team with a good togetherness. The Manager has still been in contact with me about the game which is typical of him. We are all putting the work in and we will be prepared for the fixture. We will have to be ready for a really tough game.

"We are looking to bounce back from our defeat on Saturday. We need to be firing on all cylinders. They were unlucky on Saturday even though the scoreline doesn't reflect that. We have always bounced back from defeat and that's what we are looking to do.

"It's always good to get back out on the field and put things right. We couldn't get going on Saturday and we have to change that tomorrow night. There are always danger-men in every team and we need to look out for that."

Update on Donald Love:

"It's going to be around four weeks with Donald. It depends on how it settles down but it's better news than we first thought."
