Shrewsbury

Last updated: Tue 14 January 2020 05:46
In Brief

Winless run continued with a 1:1 draw with Lincoln. Sean Goss missed the previous game. Aaron Pierre was taken off with an injury. Max O'Leary cannot play.

Looking Back

Shrewsbury played out a 1:1 draw with Lincoln in a game in which they rode their luck quite a bit, as the visitors had the better of things.

The Shrews have done reasonably well this season but are currently in a rough patch, having not won in their last five outings.

Looking Ahead

Sean Goss has missed the Lincoln game and it remains to be seen if he will feature now.

Another concern is Aaron Pierre, who had to be taken off with an injury last time around.

Max O'Leary cannot play under the terms of his loan, so veteran Joe Murphy is set to start in goal.

Points of Interest

Shrewsbury's sole home game against Bristol City in the 21st century was back in 2014, when they were edged out in a five-goal thriller.

Bristol City

In Brief

Browenhill expected to leave. Szomidcs and Afobe are ruled out.

Looking Back

Played well to claim a 2:0 win at Wigan on the road at the weekend. Thus, remain firmly in the play-off race and will be feeling good about their chances for the rest of the season.

Looking Ahead

Seeking a decent result on the road against a Shrewsbury side that showed good battling qualities to pick up a 1:1 draw in the original game.

Lee Johnson expected to rotate the squad to an extent but he named a pretty strong 11 the first time out and should take the game pretty seriously. No fresh injury issues and only Sammie Szmodics and Benik Afobe remain out. Wish Brownhill was not involved on Saturday as rumours about a move to Burnley intensify and he is unlikely to be involved in midweek.

Points of Interest

Bristol City earned a 3:2 win on their last visit to the Shrews, back in 2014.
