Ashikodi Set For Shrews Stint

Former striker Moses Ashikodi is to become the second released Bulls man to join Shrewsbury's misfiring front line.

The volatile ex-Watford forward scored twice in a reserve match at the Prostar Stadium last night with manager Paul Simpson telling their official site: "I thought that Moses did very well and I'm going to speak to him today with a view to get something sorted until the end of the season.

He showed some good touches and good awareness and had some decent pace around his game. He's really down on his match fitness but that is something we can work on and get improved if we get something sorted."

Ashikodi, who scored once in eight games in spell plagued by injury and indiscipline, would join Nick Chadwick in making the drop to the League Two side. Since moving up the A49 Chadwick has failed to find the net in seven games, with his only goal for the Bulls a solitary penalty in 12 matches.
