MacGillivray In Team Of The Week (30/1/18)
Shrewsbury Town are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.
The performance by goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray in the one nil victory over Portsmouth at the weekend at Fratton Park was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.
I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why MacGillivray was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.
'It may have been Shrewsbury 'keeper MacGillivray`s first league outing since October, but there was certainly no case of rustiness from the 25-year-old. A string of fine stops ensured the Shrews held onto the 1-0 lead which was handed to them at Portsmouth by James Bolton`s 21st-minute strike.'
It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to MacGillivray for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.
