Manchester United legend Cole warns: Shrewsbury play some good stuff

Manchester United legend Andy Cole expects an FA Cup classic tonight at Shrewsbury Town.

Cole, who won the competition in 1996 and 1999, saw the Shrews come up against Fleetwood Town, his son Devante’s team, in a goalless draw earlier this month and was impressed by the way Micky Mellon’s side play.

“I watched them a few weeks ago, obviously when they played against Fleetwood,” Cole told MUTV.

“They were tough conditions and it was a very windy day. To be fair, Shrewsbury tried to get it down to play.

“I played with their manager many years ago at Bristol City and he plays with the right attitude. There is no doubt they’ll enjoy the game.

I’m not sure what their pitch will be like, it might be a bit difficult to try to play, but they will give it a good go.

“No doubt they were all buzzing when they got drawn out of the hat at home to Manchester United.

“What more can you ask for? Every player will be giving 110 per cent, for sure, as they are going to want to try to upset United in the FA Cup.

“I think it’ll be a really good game and the good thing for them is I’ve seen a few teams in League One but they don’t just lump it forward.

“They do try to play and it’s refreshing to see that style in League One.”
