Nathanael Ogbeta previews Town's fixture with Ipswich Town

4 May 2021

Nathanael Ogbeta previews Town's final Sky Bet League One home game of the season against Ipswich Town.

Shrewsbury Town welcome Ipswich Town to Montgomery Waters Meadow tomorrow evening for the final home game of Town's Sky Bet League One campaign.

The Shrews will be looking to earn all three points with the visit of the Tractor Boys as Steve Cotterill's men look to finish at Montgomery Waters Meadow strongly.

Town defender Nat Ogbeta expects a tough test from Paul Cook's men but hopes to see the Salop XI secure a win in the penultimate game of the season.

On the social media boycott:

"Now we can do something to bring attention to obviously the issues that are going on. I just feel that, obviously, social media is a powerful thing. It is good to use it but at the same time to come off is more powerful. I checked social media to see if anyone had posted and it's never been so quiet - all you saw was the messages about discrimination.

"Many teams are coming together to stop it and it's so powerful to see.  I feel like it should really help people to understand how serious football teams and organisations have taken it because no one wants to be discriminated against in any way shape or form.  I feel like there's still so much more that we can be doing but at the same time this starts it off - it's good to see."

On the test of Ipswich:

"We were supposed to play them earlier on in the year but that game was postponed. They've had a change in manager so I feel like they're still trying to find their way in a sense. I feel like this is something that we can capitalise on. We've been playing a lot of games and that has helped us get into the rhythm of things.

"I feel like it's a great opportunity for us to get a result. They have some good players, they like to control the game with good midfielders. I feel like once we put some pressure on them and really apply that pressure, we have a really great chance to capitalise on their mistakes.

"We have hunger and we just have to keep going. We were unfortunate in the game against Oxford not to get the three points. They obviously will be fresher than us but we have to keep pushing. It's the last two games now we want to give it all."
