David Worrall, matchwinner at Crawley when Rotherham United secured their first League One win last Saturday, has warned that no one should start getting carried away.
“We did play well on the day and it was an important result because, after opening with two draws in the league, we wanted to get that first win under the belt,” said the winger who got off the subs’ bench to net a fine finish for the winner.
“But don’t get carried away by this win and this performance. There are some big clubs in this division. First priority for a team getting promotion is staying in the division but we do believe we can go on and make an impact.”
Worrall, of course, knows League One from his time at Bury but reckons his new team is equipped for the challenge.
“There are some really good players here, I’ve have seen what they are capable of and I’ve no doubts about their ability and that we can handle things. If we can get a win against Shrewsbury then I reckon you could say it’s been a great start,” added Worrall who was a major doubt for this afternoon’s home game with Shrewsbury due to a groin injury suffered in the reserves on Tuesday.
Shrewsbury will be without striker Akwasi Asante and defender James Tavernier, both recalled by their parent clubs.
