Butler enjoying life...SKIPPER, Andy Butler, has expressed his satisfaction at keeping successive clean sheets in our last two games.
"To emerge from what were two tricky-looking away games with four points and two clean sheets was very pleasing," he said. "As a defender I am paid to help us keep clean sheets, so I was delighted that we came away from Brentford and Carlisle with two shut-outs.
"It is also nice for Aaron McCarey that his return to the club in goal has coincided with this impressive record."
The inspirational leader also had words of praise for front-man, Will Grigg, after he notched the first hat-trick of his senior career at Brunton Park. "I was delighted to see Will’s efforts rewarded with a first career hat-trick," he added. "He never stops running and working hard for the team and deserves every accolade that he gets.
"Even when the goals weren’t coming as freely last season, he never lost that belief and it’s nice to see his efforts now getting their just reward."
Our thoughts now turn to the challenge that Shrewsbury Town will present. "We will have revenge in mind having totally dominated possession in front of the live TV cameras at Shrewsbury only to come out of the game with no points thanks, largely, to an excellent performance from Chris Weale in The Shrews’ goal," he went on. "Hopefully we can put things right on Saturday. They are fighting for their lives and with this being a local derby, a large and vocal crowd is expected.
"It is a game that we are looking forward to."
