Shrewsbury's James Collins targets more glory

Shrewsbury | Sport | Published:

Striker James Collins expects Shrewsbury to be competing for a play-off place in League One next season.

Town end their promotion winning 2014/15 campaign today with Plymouth Argyle the visitors to Shropshire.

A victory for Micky Mellon's side together with Burton failing to win at Cambridge will see Salop crowned League Two champions.

And Collins, who achieved promotion with Town back in 2011/12, expects more success next season.

"I think this squad is far superior to the one that went up last time," he said.

"That is no disrespect to that team because it was also a very good side. But the blend of this team is superb.

"You only have to look at the teams that went up last season, Rochdale, Chesterfield and Fleetwood. Then you have Rotherham the year before who won back-to-back promotions.

"If we carry on like we have this year, keep consistent and add some fresh faces, there is no reason why we can't be successful as well."
