Match Preview

Yates set to keep faith Mark Yates hopes to name an unchanged Cheltenham XI for the visit of promotion-chasing Shrewsbury. The Robins boss does have a couple of players, including defender Steve Elliott (Achilles), carrying knocks from Monday's 2-0 victory at Lincoln - Town`s first win in seven - but they should be okay to feature at Whaddon Road. The only other concern could be leading scorer Wes Thomas, who may have to withdraw from Yates' plans with his pregnant partner due to give birth. Yates told the club`s official website: "There is every chance of us playing the same team as Monday but we do have one or two bumps and bruises, as well as Wes Thomas' girlfriend being due any day now so we do have one or two contingency plans. "You never want to change a winning team and especially when you haven't been winning many games of late so if everybody is fit then it will be somewhere near that." Striker Jeff Goulding and right-back Keith Lowe continue to be sidelined with their respective ankle injuries. Graham Turner is not expected to have any new injury or suspension problems. Following back-to-back victories, Turner kept faith with the same starting XI for the third successive match on Easter Monday as Shrews were frustratingly held to a goalless draw at home to Accrington. He must now decide whether to stick or twist with his line-up as fourth-placed Shrews go in search of three points they hope will see them overtake Wycombe and climb into the final automatic promotion place ahead of the last weekend of the season. Midfielder and leading scorer Mark Wright made an impact on Monday when introduced from the bench at half-time in place of Lionel Ainsworth and he will be pushing for a recall, along with striker Matt Harrold. Only defeat for Town and a Wycombe victory away to second-placed Bury would extinguish the Shropshire club's hopes of automatic promotion.

Match Report

Shrews have the Wright stuff Shrewsbury maintained their push for automatic promotion with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Cheltenham. But there were also celebrations for the Robins who survived the drop following a defeat for relegation rivals Barnet at Accrington. The only goal of the game came on ten minutes and followed excellent work from Nicky Wroe. The midfielder ran 30 yards to the edge of the area before passing to the unmarked Mark Wright who placed his shot beyond the keeper. The home side came back strongly with Danny Andrew having an effort pushed over the bar by Shrews keeper Ben Smith, while Wes Thomas appeared to be tripped by Ian Sharps inside the area only for the penalty appeals to go unheeded. Both sides had chances in the final stages of the half with Wroe having a long-range effort well saved by home keeper Scott Brown, before Thomas whistled a shot just too high at the other end. Thomas scuffed a shot into the keeper's hands and then grazed the visitors' crossbar with a header in the second half while Shrewsbury's David Davies rattled the woodwork at the other end from 30 yards.
