John Coleman’s Accrington Stanley travel to Gay Meadow on Saturday to take on play-off hopeful’s Shrewsbury Town. Stanley know that a minimum of a point on Saturday would mean safety because of Boston United’s, who are occupying the last relegation spot after Torquay’s relegation last Saturday, very poor goal difference.

A 4-1 win over Grimsby Town last weekend puts Stanley in good confidence ahead of their trip down to Shropshire. Shrewsbury go in to the game on the back of a 0-0 draw with Chester City.

Shrewsbury Town Team News:

Striker Ben Davies is to be recalled after being left out against his former club Chester. Luke Jones has recovered from an ankle injury and could start, along with Lee Canoville, who has been out with a foot injury.

Player to watch: Ben Davies

Seems to have picked up a little form in recent times and could be a real danger to Stanley.

Accrington Stanley Team News:

Stanley go in to the game with a full squad with the exception of just two, after Leighton McGivern returned against Grimsby.

Shaun Whalley is struggling with a hamstring problem, while midfielder Tony Grant also misses out with an ankle injury.

Paul Mullin is set to extend his Stanley record on Saturday after passing the old record against Grimsby.

Player to watch: Paul Mullin

With 15 goals to his name this season, I think it tells you just how much of a danger he is.

Match Prediction:

I think the score will be a cool Shrewsbury 0-3 Stanley.
