Moore prepared for organised Shrewsbury Town

21 February 2020

Darren Moore believes his side will face a disciplined Shrewsbury Town team on Saturday.

The Shrews’ current campaign has been defined by an impressive Emirates FA Cup run which included a well-deserved draw with Premier League front-runners Liverpool.

“Shrewsbury are a strong team. Sam Ricketts has got them really organised and they can cause you problems as well. They get the ball down and play but at the same time, they carry a good threat,” said Moore.

“In the last game against them, we evenly shaded it. We got the goals at the right time and put in a flawless defensive display.

“We know we’ll need good performances across the pitch to get a result on Saturday – it will be a combined effort.

“They’ve been on an excellent cup run this season and it shows what they’ve done against higher opposition.”

There will be a moment of silence for former Rovers player and Shrewsbury Town manager Harry Gregg on Saturday after he passed away on February 16.

“Both clubs will unite for Harry and his family,” Moore added.

“I’m sure we’ll pay tremendous respect and give Harry a wonderful tribute for the service that he did here at this club and also at Shrewsbury.

“We know what he did at Manchester United as well so we’ll all come together to pay respect to him and his family on a special day.”
