Tyrese Fornah conducted his first pre-match interview with Town as he gave his thoughts on Salop’s upcoming fixture.
Shrewsbury Town travel to Burton Albion this weekend as they look to return to winning ways.
With David Davis and Josh Vela unavailable for the game, the Nottingham Forest loanee could be in with a chance of regular first-team football over the coming weeks.
Fornah joined Shrewsbury in the January transfer window and says he has enjoyed his first month with the club as he pushes himself to be the very best he can be.
On last Tuesday night and Burton:
“Yeah [it was disappointing], more for the players who started because we worked hard as a team all week to prepare for that game. We did well for the first 30 minutes and then things happen but it’s part of football if you know what I mean. We’ve got to move on, work hard and try and get a result at the weekend. I’m looking forward to it. I just want to put things right on the pitch just like everyone else does, so I’m looking forward to it. It’ll be a big game, but we need to start getting results.”
On his time with Shrewsbury Town so far:
“I’m very happy but I’m still learning, trying to improve, working hard on the training pitch, and just trusting the boys, the gaffer, and the staff to tell me what they want from me and to work for it on the pitch. I’m learning from them [David Davis, Josh Vela, and Luke Leahy]; they don’t need to say much to me, but I watch them and I’m learning and I’m trying to be the best I can be. I just need to give the best I can when I play and express myself and enjoy it.
“For me, a midfield player should be able to play anywhere in midfield so it’s just about doing my job as a midfield player: going up and down and basically trying to replicate what the gaffer wants from me. I want to be one of the best midfield players in the country at my age, so to be able to do that you have to play all different positions whether it’s the six, eight, or ten, it doesn’t really matter to me, it’s all the same. It’s just about giving my all on the pitch and fighting for the club and that’s what I’m trying to do now."
