Shrews boss looks upwards

Shrewsbury Town boss Gary Peters has urged his side to look upwards towards the play-off places following a 2-1 win over Peterborough United on Friday evening. Trailing 1-0 at the break against a side who had won their three previous matches, Shrewsbury stirred themselves and superbly taken goals from Ben Davies and Derek Asamoah allowed them to overcome Peter Gain's first-half strike for Posh. "It was superb and the energy we showed out there was amazing," he told the club's official website. "We had our bits of luck, whereas in the other games we've been the better team and not got what we deserved. "The win means we are safe and have 52 points. We set ourselves that target and said we'd look at where we were when we go 52 points. "The league looks healthy as we are in ninth place. We've got the games in hand but you can't count on those games being points - but it does look encouraging."
