Match Preview

Wroe woe for Shrews Nicky Wroe has been ruled out for six to eight weeks ahead of Shrewsbury's home clash against Northampton. The influential midfielder has broken two metatarsals in a foot having been on the receiving end of a nasty challenge from Bradford's David Syers which merited a red card in Town's 3-1 New Year's Eve defeat. Wroe's absence is likely to see Everton loanee James Wallace promoted from the bench by manager Graham Turner, who also has Aaron Wildig at his disposal. Turner will evaluate the immediate options at his disposal before deciding whether he needs to bolster his midfield ranks now the January window has opened. With the demands of two games in three days, the Shrews boss had promised to make changes even before the disappointing loss at Valley Parade, and the likes of Marvin Morgan, Terry Gornell, Lionel Ainsworth and Jermaine Grandison will all be pushing for a starting berth against the Cobblers. Town will come up against a Northampton side desperate for revenge following their 7-2 mauling at Sixfields in November although Turner would love a repeat performance as he looks to get his side's promotion charge back on track. Loan signings Akwasi Asante and Ben Harding will be added to the Northampton squad. Striker Asante agreed to join the Cobblers on a month-long deal from Birmingham on Friday but was not allowed to feature against Swindon as he could not complete his move to Sixfields until the transfer window opened. Defender Harding linked up with the npower League Two strugglers on New Year's Day, arriving from Wycombe on a deal until the end of the season. Adebayo Akinfenwa will be among those looking for a recall after the experienced striker started the last two matches on the bench. Midfielders Andy Holt and Nick McKoy will also hope to come back into the reckoning. Aidy Boothroyd is still without a win since taking over as manager three games ago. The Cobblers have not won in 12 league matches, losing on 10 occasions, since beating Barnet 2-1 at Underhill on October 1.

Match Report

Cobblers repel Shrews Northampton survived a second half onslaught to pick up a vital point from a 1-1 draw at promotion contenders Shrewsbury. Goalkeeper Shane Higgs shone for the Cobblers with a string of fine saves in the second half, which included instinctive stops from Marvin Morgan and Terry Gornell. Northampton took the lead in the 22nd minute, with on-loan West Brom striker Saido Berahino tapping in from six yards after lively debutant Akwasi Asante rounded goalkeeper Chris Neal and sent the ball goalwards. Shrewsbury hit back to equalise 12 minutes later when Matt Richards fired a fine shot from 20 yards into the bottom corner. Chances continued to come and go at either end during a breathless first half, with Shrewsbury's Gornell flashing a header just wide, while at the other end Neal did well to block from Lewis Young who had just the keeper to beat. Shrewsbury, who remain unbeaten at home, grew increasingly dominant in the second half but the winner they craved against a Northampton side they beat 7-2 at Sixfields in November failed to arrive.
