Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's fixture with Hull City

18 March 2021

Aaron Wilbraham previews Town's Sky Bet League One home fixture with Hull City.

Shrewsbury Town next welcome Hull City to Montgomery Waters Meadow for Town's latest Sky Bet League One home fixture.

Town will be looking to secure a double over the Tigers after a 0-1 victory over Grant McCann's team who currently sit at the top of the Sky Bet League One table.

Prior to previewing Town's next fixture, Town Assistant Manager Aaron Wilbraham paid tribute to the late Steve Jagielka who sadly passed away earlier this week.

Tribute to Jags:

"It's really sad news, you hate to see news like that. He was a tremendous servant to the Club, playing over 200 games. It is such sad news and everyone from Shrewsbury Town is sending their thoughts to the family."

Aaron is expecting a stern test from the in-form home side but feels a full week on the training ground will put Salop in good stead to earn a result against the visitors.

On the visit of Hull City:

"Hull was one of my first games with the Gaffer back in December. We managed to get a good result there but they are flying high at the top of the league so it will be a tough game. It's one that the lads are looking forward to.

"We've had the fresh break in the week with no Tuesday game and it has been good to fit in some training time with the lads. I know they're a good team with a good manager. They have been up there all season and they'll be looking to kick on.

"We are getting ready for a tough game. We concentrate on each game and they are flying high in the league. They will be looking to continue their form and we will be looking to do the same. They have some good players for this division and you can see why they're up there.

"Good results breed confidence. Going to Charlton and being disappointed with a draw shows you are heading in the right direction. Our lads have been in good spirits this week and training has been good. There is competition for places in the squad and that is healthy."
