Match Preview

Turner pondering which Shrews to choose Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner will weigh up changes for the visit of Bristol Rovers as his promotion-chasing side look to get back to winning ways in npower League Two. Midfielders Mark Wright and Jon Taylor were dropped in favour of debutant Romaine Sawyers and Nicky Wroe for Saturday's disappointing 1-0 defeat at promotion rivals Torquay, a result which ended Town's three-match winning run. Wright and Taylor are now competing for recalls against a resurgent Rovers side, who have won all three matches under new boss Mark McGhee, while the likes of winger Lionel Ainsworth and striker Tom Bradshaw are also pushing for involvement. Forward Marvin Morgan serves the final game of his three-match ban, while it remains to be seen whether defenders Shane Cansdell-Sherriff (shoulder), Reuben Hazell (knee) or Connor Goldson (back) could stake a claim for a place in Turner's matchday 16 as they continue to step up their recoveries. Dave McAllister is available having extended his loan from Sheffield United. Bristol Rovers will continue to be without defenders Gary Sawyer and Aaron Downes. Sawyer is set to spend four weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring problem, while on-loan Downes has been ruled out of action for as long as six weeks after suffering knee cartilage damage during the 2-1 victory over Bradford on January 28. New signing Tom Parkes, who arrived on loan from Leicester on a one-month deal last week, will be looking to keep his place in the Pirates backline after making his debut in the 2-1 victory over Morecambe on Saturday. Matt Harrold, Danny Woodards and Joe Anyinsah all came through that fixture unscathed after their return from injuries and the trio are all expected to feature once again at the Greenhous Meadow. Adam Virgo (knee) and Wayne Brown (ankle) remain long-term absentees as Rovers manager Mark McGhee aims to make it four wins out of four since assuming control at the Memorial Stadium.

Match Report

Collins keeps Shrews on track Top scorer James Collins fired a late winner as Shrewsbury edged out Bristol Rovers 1-0 to stay in the hunt for automatic promotion. A tight game of few chances looked destined to end goalless until Republic of Ireland Under-21 international Collins rifled home his 10th goal of the season five minutes from time. Rovers failed to clear a corner and Collins reacted instinctively to rocket a shot on the turn to the top corner of the net for his tenth goal of the season. Shrewsbury remain unbeaten at the Greenhous Meadow this season and have collected 36 points from a possible 42 on home soil. A sterile first half featured few chances at either end, with neither keeper seriously extended. Shrewsbury winger Mark Wright, facing his former club, flashed a 25 yard shot just wide while a long range piledriver from Rovers midfielder Craig Stanley went straight at keeper Chris Neal. The second half was a little more open with Collins seeing a header tipped over by keeper Michael Poke while Rovers' Elliot Richards was just off target from the edge of the box. It was a first defeat for Rovers since Mark McGhee took over.
