Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon wants to beat long-standing club record

13 April 2015

Micky Mellon's Shrewsbury Town equalled a long-standing club record as they moved another significant step closer to promotion with a 4-0 demolition of Exeter City.

The hosts registered a 21st Football League clean sheet of the season to level the club's best that was set in 1968.

Mellon was happy to hear of the record being equalled but stressed his side were not finished yet.

He said: "It's terrific but we won't be happy until we beat that. We'll continue to go into every single game that we go into now and try and win it."

Mellon also hailed the quality of his team's performance as they notched a sixth successive victory to keep the pressure on League 2 leaders Burton.

Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro scored twice while James Collins and Tyrone Barnett also weighed in as Shrewsbury coasted to three more points.

"I thought that was an absolute masterclass from minute one to minute 93, 94," said Mellon.

"It would be probably wrong of me to single out any performance because I just thought that right through the whole side every one of them stuck to the plan and executed a top class performance."
