Shrewsbury Town vs Rochdale


Match Preview
Ryan Yates back from ban to boost Shrewsbury

Midfielder Ryan Yates is back for Shrewsbury after serving his one-match ban.

The Nottingham Forest loanee missed Tuesday's 2-1 defeat to Millwall which left the Shrews in deep relegation danger in Sky Bet League One.

But they are likely to be without West Brom loanee Tyler Roberts, who suffered a hamstring injury in midweek.

Midfielder Abu Ogogo, out with a long-term knee injury, will also be missing for Town.

Rochdale midfielder Keith Keane is available to manager Keith Hill after serving a two-game suspension following his red card against AFC Wimbledon.

Defender Niall Canavan, who sustained an injury during the warm-up to that game, could be in contention after missing both the recent Northampton and Port Vale games.



Hill currently has no other new injury concerns.



Rochdale sit in eighth place, five points outside the play-off positions with five games remaining.
