Daniel Udoh spoke to the press ahead of tomorrow's Sky Bet League One fixture away at Crewe Alexandra
Dan Udoh was the man of the moment after giving Salop the lead at Anfield in their last outing, converting Nat Ogbeta’s cross in the 27th minute to send the travelling fans wild.
Both sides are in good form, with Crewe winning four of their last seven and Town picking up ten points from a possible 12 in their last four league games.
Udoh reiterated Wilbraham’s message about focusing on the league and said Crewe would ‘fight until the end’ on Saturday.
On the fixture:
“We watched Crewe today and we’ve seen that they got a good result yesterday and we know that they’re a hard team to play against. I personally know what they’re about, but our focus has been to go to Crewe and put in a good performance and win the game.
“They beat a good team in Charlton and now they’ll be looking to get back-to-back home wins to make their place a fortress for them to build on for the rest of the season.
“Crewe are one of those teams who are going to work hard and play good football wherever they are, so I expect a good game and I’ll make sure the boys expect a good game too. The manager has already told us to expect a good game and a tough game and not to go there thinking that, because they’re towards the bottom of the table, we’re going to get an easy win. It’s like us a few weeks ago, people have come to our home ground thinking they could get an easy win and we’ve proved them wrong, and Crewe will be hoping to do the same thing.
“It’s [the preparation] been good, the gaffer has given us days off and we needed days off, and then we’ve had hard sessions like today which we also needed just to make sure we all understand what we need on Saturday.
“I know most of the boys there from working with them and I know they’re all good lads, all good characters and they’ll keep fighting until the end. I know what they’re about and from what the manager has spoken to us about today, everyone else so they all know what they’re about so it should be a good game.
“They stick to what they’re good at which is playing football out from the back and they’re producing good talent, but Saturday is all about us and we’ve got to make sure we’re doing things right. That can be the difference for us this year, our home performances have been good so if we can get our away performances to be as good then we’ll be alright.”
On the away ticket sales for the fixture:
“I didn’t expect anything less, it’s a short trip I know but knowing the Shrewsbury fans they’ll go anywhere. You look at how many there were at Fleetwood, they’ll go to Gillingham away and stuff like that, they’ll still turn out there in good numbers.”
