Pay on the day at Shrewsbury

29 September 2017

On Tuesday night, Graham Alexander had to settle for a point at Gillingham with a 0-0 draw. Tom Hopper and Duane Holmes came close to clinching a winner towards the end of the game, but were prevented by two good saves.

Shrewsbury, on the other hand, continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-1 win away at Doncaster Rovers, scoring a winner in the 94th minute.

TEAM NEWS…
Graham Alexander confirmed he will have the same squad available to him as the Gillingham game, with no additional injury concerns.

Conor Townsend (calf) will not be involved again, as he is still recovering after missing the last two matches.

The same applies for trio Charlie Goode (ankle), Jonathon Margetts (knee) and Luke Williams (hamstring).

PAST MEETINGS…
The Iron lost 1-0 to Shrewsbury in February of last season, conceding in the 69th minute.

Prior to that, the Iron had not lost to the Shropshire side since 1998, which included 12 wins in 17 games.
