Dan Udoh previews Town's fixture with Hull City

19 March 2021

Dan Udoh previews Town's Sky Bet League One home clash 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 at the KCOM Stadium over Grant McCann's Hull who currently sit at the top of the Sky Bet League One table.

Dan Udoh is looking forward to taking on the league leaders and hopes to find the back of the net for the Shrews.

On what to expect from Hull City:

“We can expect a tough game, they are top of the table for a reason. We played them a while ago and we won that game. Things have changed since and then they have gone on a good run and kept on winning. We expect a tough game but we are at home and we have to make our home tough for away teams.

“You can take things from the previous game like how they set up and things like that, and we can hopefully set up in a way that can beat them and nullify all their strengths. A goal would be nice. I can’t remember the last time I scored this season. The goals have been hard to come by but a goal and win would be nice."

On the determination to build on the last game:

“We are playing against the top of the table so we want to do well. If you want to do well at this level, you need to beat the teams above you and try and finish as high as possible and not have to look back at people behind you.

“After the last game, I had my head down after not taking the chance that I had. I back myself in that position when I am one-on-one with the defender and I should have got the shot off earlier.

“Aaron spoke to me after the game and he told me not to get down and to try not to think about the fact I could have won the game for us on the journey home. He just said that the next time you get an opportunity, you make the most of it and you stick it in the back of the net."

On the rare full week of training ahead of the game:

“For me, I try and work on things that I haven’t been doing well recently so it's all about fine-tuning things getting that repetition so that when I get to the game I can produce.

“We have had the free week so physically I feel really good, mentally I feel fine. The management and the staff have given us the best opportunity and they have prepared us so we are ready for the game on Saturday.

“The boys will feel a lot fresher and we should be able to go out on Saturday all guns blazing. We are playing top of the table so there should be no excuse to be leggy because we have not had a midweek game."
