HURST ACTS TO CUT THE CARDS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By James Davies

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.”
