Shrewsbury Town Vs Aldershot Town, Sat 21 Aug 2010

Published Add your comment

Chris Neal is set to feature in goal for Shrewsbury as Graham Turner's side look to continue their winning start to the League Two campaign against Aldershot.

First-choice keeper Ben Smith was substituted with a groin injury during last weekend's win over Macclesfield so youngster Hakan Duyan will provide back-up for Neal on the substitutes bench.

Town will also be without Kevin McIntyre as he completes a three-match ban for his straight red card in the opening-day victory over Bradford.

Kris Bright is expected to return to the matchday squad after his recovery from illness but fellow striker Nathan Elder remains a long-term injury victim with knee ligament damage.

John Halls could return to Aldershot`s squad.

Midfielder Halls, 28, last featured in the play-off defeat to Rotherham back in May and has since been sidelined with a groin injury.

But the former Reading and Stoke man returned to training this week and could make Kevin Dillon`s matchday 18.

Youngster Jack Randall is still waiting to make his debut after breaking an ankle in pre-season, but otherwise Dillon has no injury concerns for the visit to the joint league leaders.

Marvin Morgan scored his first goal of the season in last weekend`s 1-0 win at home to Southend and he will again lead the line, with ex-Sheffield Wednesday forward Wade Small again left on the bench.
