Match Preview

Duo doubtful for Shrews Ian Sharps and Shane Cansdell-Sherriff are unlikely to return for Shrewsbury's clash against Torquay as the Shropshire club come back down to earth following their midweek Carling Cup heroics. The central defensive partners, who sustained respective calf and hamstring injuries in last weekend's victory at Port Vale, missed Tuesday's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates, where Town took the lead. Skipper Sharps is making good progress with his recovery but the game is set to come too soon, while Cansdell-Sherriff faces another couple of weeks out. Manager Graham Turner faces a welcome selection dilemma in attack as Terry Gornell returns from his three-match suspension and will push James Collins all the way for a starting berth after his opener threatened a major upset against the Gunners. Otherwise, there are not expected to be too many, if any, changes to Town's XI as they come up against a Gulls side who dumped them out in the semi-finals of the play-offs last season. Lloyd Macklin and Daniel Leadbitter are pushing for a starting place in Martin Ling's Torquay side. Macklin has been struggling with a calf problem for two weeks, but has now made a full recovery and scored a stunning goal for the club's reserves against Bournemouth in midweek. Ling was at Dean Court to see the strike - a classy finish at the end of a blistering 60-yard run - and will no doubt take the winger's impressive performance into consideration when selecting his Gulls side this weekend. Defender Leadbitter has yet to make his debut for his new club since joining from Newcastle in the summer, but came through 90 minutes of the same second-string clash unscathed and may feature. Otherwise, Ling has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Match Report

Shrews up to second Shrewsbury moved into second place in the table but their 2-0 win over Torquay was less than convincing. The Shrews took the lead after six minutes when James Collins sent Lionel Ainsworth away on the right wing and when the tricky winger crossed low into the box, Collins neatly tucked it away from 12 yards. Marvin Morgan, twice, and Mark Wright scorned good chances to increase the lead against a side that thrashed Shrewsbury 5-0 only last March and then beat them in the play offs. As Torquay came back into the game, Ben Smith saved with his legs as Billy Bodin raced clear. Collins hit the bar on 48 minutes but a minute later punished a poor clearance by goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik to drive the ball low inside the far post from 15 yards. United used all their subs early in the second half in an all-out effort to salvage a point, but their misery was complete when striker Rene Howe collected a second yellow card in stoppage time for pushing Reuben Hazell.
