Football is back on Monday, so we can safely assume this match goes ahead. The Shrews' form isn't too bad, some decent results so far and they've played mostly good teams. My cousin lives in Shrewsbury, and I have not so fond memories of seeing Alan Beer receive a career-ending injury there when we were 2-0 up in the old Third Division, 1978 maybe, not sure. For most clubs this distance would be a long journey for the travelling fans, for us it's not one of the worst as the motorway helps in getting there.

Think you are right, beginning of the 78-79 season with Alan Beer in the Welsh squad and on the verge of a decent move to Leicester (?), it was a real tragedy he was a late blooming talent, quick and skillful. Think Jevani Brown getting a career ending injury now.

Difficult game this one. Shrewsbury are a hard team to break down. I don't see this being a high scoring game, and as with most away games this season, I'd be happy to see us come away with a point.

Haven’t won a home game since March. Pressure is on them . 1-1
The Shrews have made an average start but they have tended to be a bit of a bogey team particularly away from SJP and we also have the RB factor to consider.

Will be happy with a draw.

Hopefully the Charlton cancellation might mean that our boys still have that comfortable victory over MK Dons in their minds.

3:1 City: Nombe, Harper, Stansfield.
