Fleetwood v Shrewsbury preview
Last Updated: 12/10/18 10:30am
Fleetwood are without on-loan left-back James Husband for the Sky Bet League One clash with Shrewsbury.
Husband suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury in last week's win at Doncaster and has returned to parent club Norwich for assessment. He is expected to rejoin Fleetwood next week. Midfielder James Wallace has been passed fit after being withdrawn midway through last week's game as a precaution.
Midfielder Bobby Grant remains outside the first-team group after a disagreement with manager Joey Barton while Tommy Spurr, Conor McAleny and Dean Marney are not yet ready to return after injuries.
Shrewsbury forward Aaron Amadi-Holloway is back in contention for the trip to Highbury. The Welshman missed last week's victory over Accrington with a knock but managed 15 minutes in the Checkatrade Trophy win against Tranmere in midweek.
Winger Abo Eisa is still out with a knee injury but is expected to return to training next week. On-loan midfielder Charlie Colkett is unavailable having returned to parent club Chelsea for treatment on a foot injury.
Fleetwood have lost just one of their five home games against Shrewsbury in all competitions (W3 D1), however that was this exact fixture in League One last season, a 2-1 defeat.
Shrewsbury did a league double over Fleetwood last season; they had never previously beaten them in League One prior to that campaign (P4 W0 D2 L2).
Fleetwood are without a clean sheet in six consecutive home league games, after keeping three in their previous four.
Excluding play-offs, Shrewsbury are without a win in ten League One away games (D6 L4). Their last such win came in a 2-1 victory over Scunthorpe in March.
Fleetwood's Paddy Madden has scored six goals in his six league starts against Shrewsbury Town, more than he has against any other side in the Football League.
