Pre Peterborough | Rob Street

16 December 2022

Striker Rob Street chatted to the media ahead of Shrewsbury's League One clash at Peterborough tomorrow.

The 21-year-old netted his first Town goal in just the second minute of our 3-2 win over Bolton last weekend.

That strike was no more than Rob deserved with the forward having worked tirelessly for the team ever since arriving on a season-long loan from Crystal Palace in the summer.

Now Rob is looking to build on his impressive recent performances - starting at the Weston Homes Stadium tomorrow.

Speaking to the media, the forward discussed his time with Shrewsbury so far, his goal against the Trotters and his aims for the rest of the season.

ON HIS TIME AT SHREWSBURY SO FAR:

"I'm enjoying it. I'm properly enjyoing it. There is a really good atmosphere around the club.

"I have learnt a lot in a short period of time. It has gone so quickly.

"I have learnt a lot from the manager, Alby (assistant manager Aaron Wilbraham) and Dave (first team coach David Longwell) and the players.
 
"There is a really good group of players here, and they have taught me a few things. It's those finer details they are bringing into my game which is really helping me.
 
"The club has been so welcoming. It has been brilliant, really good."
 
ON CHRISTMAS AS A FOOTBALLER:
 
"It is not like a normal Christmas.
 
"I think we will be in on Christmas day and we have a game on New Years too, so it will be a busy period.
 
"But it is my job at the end of the day and it is what I love doing so there are no complaints on my side.
 
"I still see my family. They are back in London, I think they are going to try and come up, I might not get to see my wider family but I am sure I will catch them over the summer."
 
ON SCORING AFTER TWO MINUTES AGAINST BOLTON:
 
"When you get an early one you fancy yourself if you get another chance.
 
"It was nice to get off the mark, especially so early in the game.
 
"It was my first chance in that game so I was really happy with that, and it put the team in a good position."
 
ON THE DRESSING ROOM AFTER THE WIN:
 
"It was very happy, whenever you score a 90th-minute goal it is always going to be a little bit more special.
 
"It made it three wins in a row as well which is really good.
 
"We have so many games over the Christmas break, if we can take that momentum into them who knows where we will sit in the table. But it is just one game at a time for the moment."
 
ON THE RECENT COLD WEATHER:
 
"We have been here the last couple of days (training on the astro), the pitches have been frozen. I think it was minus six when we got in this morning.
 
"The ground staff are doing a brilliant job because last Saturday the pitch was still really, really, good, so that is a credit to them.
 
"The pitches are frozen, but it is not a problem, we can just jump on the astro and it is a good surface.
 
"As long as we can get the ball at our feet for a few days of the week then we are ready for Saturday."
 
ON RECENT PERFORMANCES AND RESULTS:
 
"I think a lot of it is confidence. We are a really confident team at the moment.
 
"The manager has drilled into us our philosophy and how he wants us to play and it is coming out a lot more in the games now.
 
"I think we have had that gelling period, there were quite a few new faces in the summer, and now everyone knows each other's strengths and weaknesses so we play to them."
 
ON THE POSITION IN THE LEAGUE TABLE:
 
"With the quality in the squad we have, we are where we should be and I think we can go higher.
 
"The playoffs are only two points away, that is definitely in our eye line.
 
"We are close to it, but we also know that if we have a few bad weeks, we will move away from it again.
 
"We have to keep up the momentum from the last three wins, and build on them."
