Match Preview

Turner to ring changes Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner is set to make changes for the visit of Crewe following his side`s winless start to the League Two season. Turner has kept faith with the same starting XI for each of Town`s first four games in all competitions but, after watching his side go down 2-0 at Oxford on Tuesday night, opened the door for his fringe players to step in. The likes of Chris Neal, Joe Jacobson, Jermaine Grandison, Connor Goldson, Steve Leslie, Terry Gornell, Jon Taylor and Sean McAllister all did themselves no harm at all as they narrowly lost 2-1 to a strong Wolves side in a practice match on Wednesday afternoon, with McAllister netting for Shrews. Afterwards Turner told the club`s official website: "It was good experience for the young lads and there were some good performances which gives me some interesting selection decisions to take ahead of the weekend`s game." One huge boost for the Shrews boss was the earlier than expected return of Tom Bradshaw against Wanderers, the striker managing 40 minutes without any ill-effects having damaged cruciate knee ligaments during pre-season. Crewe boss Dario Gradi could again be without Matt Tootle. The defender has been struggling with a groin strain and, although he has started running again, the visit to the Shrews could come too soon. The Railwaymen have tasted defeat in all four of their opening matches this season, losing their three league games and being dumped out of the Carling Cup by Preston. Gradi will ponder changing his formation after leaving out full-back Harry Davis and playing 3-5-2 in Tuesday's 2-1 home defeat against Rotherham. Nick Powell could be recalled after impressive second-half performance against the Millers and Gradi believes his side's campaign will soon ignite, saying "The players are down but they will pick themselves up."

Match Report

Shrews up and running Shrewsbury chalked up their first league win of the season with a 2-0 victory against a Crewe side who still await their first point and their first away goal. The Shrews took the lead after 22 minutes when Sean McAllister - one of four changes for the home side - tucked a glancing header past Steve Phillips from Lionel Ainsworth's cross. Shrews were good value for their half-time lead, although Shaun Miller and David Artell should have done better with two clear-cut early chances for Alex. Phillips was kept busy and did well to keep out two stinging shots and a teasing lob from Mark Wright. As Crewe got back into the game in the second half, they had young substitute Nick Powell sent off for a studs-first challenge on McAllister. For Alex, sub Max Clayton hit the post with a header two minutes from the end, before Nicky Wroe got Shrewsbury's second goal after a brilliant solo run in stoppage time.
