Match Preview: Shrewsbury Town

2 February 2018

Rovers host Shrewsbury Town at the Mem on Saturday afternoon as they look to make it three wins on the bounce.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men are on a good run at the moment, unbeaten in six and have won three of their last five games. Last weekend saw a great result against an in-form Doncaster Rovers outfit, with Ryan Sweeney, Rory Gaffney and Ellis Harrison all on target in that 3-1 victory. The Mem has been a venue for late drama in 2018, with The Gas coming from behind both to win late against both Portsmouth and Bradford City since the turn of the year to produce some great scenes at BS7.

The Gaffer's View: Darrell spoke to the media on Thursday afternoon and whilst the discussion was largely dominated by the signings of Tony Craig and Kyle Bennett, the boss did offer his thoughts on the challenge of Shrewbury.

Five Things We Learnt From Darrell Clarke's Presser

Opposition: The Shrews are having quite a campaign, currently flying high and sat 3rd in the league after finishing just two points off the drop last season. Like Rovers, they've won three out of their last five but also boast an impressive record on the road with the fourth best away points return in the division.
