Shrewsbury Town Vs Wycombe Wanderers, Sat 19 Mar 2011

Published Add your comment

Shrewsbury will be without Jermaine Grandison for their home game against promotion rivals Wycombe as the full-back starts a three-match ban.

Grandison saw red just before half-time in last Saturday`s desperate 5-0 defeat at Torquay and now misses the visit of Gary Waddock`s side, along with the trips to Bradford and Rotherham.

As well as the one enforced change, with David Raven the likely man to step in at the back, it remains to be seen how many fresh faces manager Graham Turner opts to introduce following the poor performance at Plainmoor.

Striker Matt Harrold was a 68th-minute introduction from the bench having overcome his struggles with tonsillitis, but he may well start from the off this time around as fifth meets third in League Two.

Fringe midfielder Steve Leslie is unavailable having joined Hereford on a month`s loan.

Wycombe will be without midfielder Stuart Lewis for the trip.

Lewis has been ruled out for up to three weeks with ankle ligament damage sustained in the 1-0 home defeat to Stevenage last Saturday, so Lewis Montrose or Scott Donnelly will come into the side.

On-loan Watford defender Rob Kiernan is fit again after undergoing intensive treatment on a hip injury and will be involved.

Left-back Andy Sandell is still sidelined with a knee problem that is expected to keep him out for a minimum of six weeks, so Danny Foster will continue.

The Shrews will close to within a point of the Chairboys with a win so Gary Waddock's side need a result to put their promotion charge back on track.
