Butler looks ahead to Shrewsbury trip

15 April 2021

Andy Butler is hoping to welcome Tyreece John-Jules and Reece James back into his squad for the trip to Shrewsbury Town this weekend.

John-Jules has returned to training following three months out with a hamstring injury, while James missed the defeat to Burton Albion due to following concussion protocols. 

Butler said: “Tyreece is looking fit and sharp in training, we’re working with Arsenal on how to manage him and we’ll use those to our advantage. 

“We think 30 minutes is what he could manage at the weekend, we don’t want to take too many risks with him too soon. 

“Reece has passed his concussion assessment so he’s fine, and we are monitoring Brad Halliday ahead of the weekend too.” 

Ahead of the game at Mongomery Waters Meadow, Butler says his side are motivated to go and get a positive result. 

He added: “There is still 21 points to play for and the players have to use the criticism they have received to motivate them. 

“Shrewsbury are a hard working side and when they came to our place they did a job on us which got them the win. 

“They’ve got a stable back three and some players at the top end of the pitch, but we know that if we can replicate our first-half performance from Tuesday then we can get a result.”
