‘Good attitude’ – EFL boss praises 23-year-old after West Brom exit

Shrewsbury Town boss Paul Hurst has said he has been impressed by Rayhaan Tulloch’s ‘attitude’ after handing him a contract.

Shrewsbury Town have signed the striker on a short-term deal until the end of the season following his exit from West Brom.

Tulloch, 23, became a free agent after cutting ties with the Baggies at the start of last month.

Hurst has said, as per the Shrews’ official club website: “He has shown a good attitude. To be honest, that is all he can do and that is what he has been judged on. I don’t think there has ever really been a question in terms of his ability and talent.  

“But ultimately, when he comes in here he has to try and impress. He does that first and foremost through attitude rather than anything else. He has done that so he has signed until the end of the season. 

“It’s an opportunity for him to try and get minutes on the pitch and when he does get those to try and impress. 

“It’s not an easy role. But it’s better than him being sat at home watching Sky Sports News every day. Let’s hope he can get on that show but from the point of view of scoring a good goal.”

Shrewsbury’s decision to land Tulloch is a relatively risk-free move. If he impresses, they can keep hold of him for longer and if it doesn’t, he can move on this summer.

The League One side have handed him the number 10 shirt and he was an unused substitute in their last outing against Port Vale as they ran out 2-1 winners after goals by Dan Udoh and Tom Bloxham.

Tulloch will give Hurst more competition and depth up front between now and the end of the campaign.

He may also feel he has a point to prove in the Football League following his exit from West Brom.

The forward rose up through the academy ranks of the Baggies and was a regular for them at various youth levels.

Tulloch went on to play seven times for the first-team as a youngster at the Hawthorns, as well as having loan spells away from the Midlands outfit at Doncaster Rovers, Rochdale, Dundalk and Bradford City to get some experience under his belt.

He spent the first-half of this term with the latter in League Two and scored once in 10 games during his stint at Valley Parade before his stay was cut short earlier this winter.

Shrewsbury are back in action this evening at home to Exeter City as they look to make it two wins on the spin. They are currently positioned in 17th place in the table and are seven points above the bottom four.
