With the season effectively over unless we can do what we haven’t managed to do all season and that is put a run of wins together (only twice have we won back to back games) and keep a clean sheet, which we have only done twice since Christmas, then if nothing else it would be pleasing if Karl Robinson and team can at least give us something to smile about tonight.
Shrewsbury we beat comfortably in the early weeks of the season but like others embattled in relegation, other than Coventry probably, the Shrews have put some results together recently and I am sure they will feel they can brush our confidence lacking team aside.
The form tables may say otherwise but honestly Robinson can have no excuses tonight. Let us please not hear of responsibility, blaming the referee, the players, a losing culture, a lack of playing squad, young players being young, hitting the woodwork 50 times and my personal favourite, issues he can’t talk about!
Go out and win the game mate. Leave the taking on the pitch.
