HURST ACTS TO CUT THE CARDS
PAUL HURST has vowed to put a stop to Shrewsbury Town’s woeful disciplinary record, declaring that fines will be introduced next season in order to cut down on player’s seeing red.
Salop have had seven players sent off already this season, while Ivan Toney and Gary Deegan are both currently suspended after accumulating ten yellow cards.
Hurst arrived at the club in October, replacing Micky Mellon – and he has seen three red cards in his ten games in charge, two in a 2-1 loss at Sheffield United and one in Tuesday’s FA Cup loss to Fleetwood Town.
“The disciplinary record overall is not good enough,” said Hurst.
“There are things that I’d like to have in place for next season. Fines will hopefully act as a deterrent.
“Not that I want to take it away from them so we’re like fairies on the pitch. In our position we need to stand up and fight. It’s striking that balance.”
