Bobby Grant has given his thoughts to the media ahead of Fleetwood’s clash against Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night.

Grant, who is pushing for a first start since returning from injury, covered all the main points ahead of tomorrow’s game.

On Saturday’s postponement and Tuesday’s game…
“We can’t wait for it. It is not good when you prepare to play a game and it gets called off.

“We have prepared properly and we can’t wait to play tomorrow night.

“It will be a very tough game, they are a very good side but as I’ve always said if we can perform to the level that we can, we can cause them a problem and beat them.”

On his recovery from injury…
“I’ve worked very hard with the staff.

“I feel I’m at that stage where the hopefully manager thinks I am fit enough to play.

“If not then I will do a job for the team around the dressing room and I will come off the bench.

“It is up to the manager and I fully support what decision he makes.”

On Shrewsbury Town…
“We know what they are going to bring, they are a very physical side with lots of energy and very good players.

“They have a very good manager who’s leading them in the right direction.

“But we have a very good manager who makes sure we are switched on mentally every day.

“We will be going into that game looking to turn our home form around.”

On Shrewsbury’s league position…
“I’m not surprised at where they are in the league.

“If you have a good group of lads who are all pulling in the right direction then that can happen in football.

“We had a great go last year and anything can happen if you go into a game full of confidence.”

On his loan spell with the Shrews in the 2014/15 season…
“Shrewsbury is a great club, it’s ran properly and it’s great behind the scenes.

“What we have here, I don’t think many can compete with the training facilities.

“To come here, and to be given the chance to work in this environment every day, I could not ask for any more.”

On his goal tally for the season…
“I think I got nine last year and I played every game, but this year I have only got four.

“I have been injured this season but most importantly it’s not about me scoring.

“It is about the team winning and that is the mentally we need to have in order to win.”

On the current league table…
We need to step up to the plate and be counted.

“This will improve the players careers more than being at the top of the table.

“We need to roll our sleeves up, start winning and start looking up the league table.”

On the home fans…
“The home fans are massive.

“When they get behind us, they give us energy.

“When it’s 0-0 during a close game and you hear your home fans getting behind you, it gives you that boost and makes you push harder.”

On the remaining fixtures…
“I expect every game now to be tough.

“It’s at that stage where teams are fighting for promotions and relegations so there is no easy game.

“If we can get tomorrow out the way with a positive result then we can look forward to Doncaster full of confidence.”
