Match Preview | Accrington Stanley

28 December 2021

Shrewsbury Town return to Montgomery Waters Meadow on Wednesday night as the host Accrington Stanley in their final game of 2021.

Salop fans were treated to a Boxing Day special on Sunday as goals from Ryan Bowman, Josh Vela, and Dan Udoh ensured Shrewsbury ran out 3-0 winners away to Fleetwood Town. The result added another clean sheet to Shrewsbury’s tally and secured their first away win of the season as well.

Just like Shrewsbury (3-1 vs Cheltenham Town and 3-0 vs Fleetwood Town), Accrington have won their previous two Sky Bet League One games with two 1-0 wins at home to both Bolton Wanderers and Rotherham United. Accrington are currently sitting 10th in the league table and are having a solid season as we reach the halfway stage. At this stage of the campaign, the club are on the right track to secure the highest league finish in their history, with their current highest league finish being 11th in League One last season.

The club are in safe hands with John Coleman in charge. Coleman is in his second spell with the club, having returned in 2014 following a 12-and-a-half-year spell that ended in 2012. This first spell began in 1999 saw the club win three promotions - as champions - and enter the Football League in 2006.


Name: Accrington Stanley

Founded: 1968, 53 years ago

Chairman: Andy Holt

Highest League Position: 11th, Sky Bet League One, 2020/21


One to Watch: Colby Bishop

He impressed in the National League North with Leamington Spa between 2017 and 2019, scoring 28 goals in 49 appearances, before leaving the semi-professional game behind to sign for Accrington for an undisclosed fee in July 2019.

He has been a key player for Accrington this season and is the club's top goalscorer with seven goals and three assists in 23 appearances. Salop’s defence has been much improved over recent weeks, but Bishop will be hot on their heels on Wednesday night as he looks to add to his already impressive goal tally.

Match Report | Shrewsbury Town 0-0 Accrington Stanley

29 December 2021

Shrewsbury Town finished 2021 with a 0-0 draw against Accrington Stanley at Montgomery Waters Meadow on Wednesday night.

Shrewsbury started the first half brightly and should have gone 1-0 up inside three minutes. Elliott Bennett - who caused the Accrington defence many problems in his right-wingback position - delivered a dangerous ball into the box where Luke Leahy headed a powerful shot at Toby Savin, who did well to get down to his right and parry the ball away.  

Leahy had another golden opportunity in the 15th minute. The ball fell to him in the box following a flick on from a long throw-in but the midfielder put it wide from close range.

The visitors had a good chance to get a goal when, in the 45th minute, Ethan Hamilton tried a venomous shot from 30 yards, but Marko Marosi was equal to it and parried it wide for a corner.

There wasn’t much to shout about in terms of chances for both sides in the second half, only that Marosi was forced into two good saves in the 65th and 69th minute. The first one came after Ross Sykes rose highest and headed the ball towards the bottom left-hand corner of the Slovakian's net, forcing him to get down quickly and turn it round the post. The second one came after Sean McConville fired a shot from 25-yards, but Marosi tipped the ball wide at full stretch to his left.

Dan Udoh had a good chance in the 72nd minute when he picked the ball up outside the box but could only fire his shot over the bar. Salop felt like they had a strong claim for a penalty in the 90th minute when a shot from Ryan Bowman inside the box struck Michael Nottingham but the referee waved any claim away.

The Teams:

Salop: Marko Marsoi, Luke Leahy, Ethan Ebanks-Landell, Matthew Pennington, Josh Vela, Daniel Udoh, Ryan Bowman, Nathanael Ogbeta, David Davis, Elliot Bennet, George Nurse

Subs Not Used: Harry Burgoyne, Sam Cosgrove, Rekeil Pyke, Charlie Caton, Josh Daniels, Callum Wilson, Kade Craig

Accrington Stanley: Toby Savin, Ethan Hamilton, Ross Sykes, Matt Butcher, John O’Sullivn, Colby Bishop, Sean McConville, Michael Nottingham (Harvey Rodgers, 90), Liam Coyle, Tommy Leigh (Harry Pell, 82), Mitch Clarke

Subs Not Used: Matty Carson, Lewis Mansell, Liam Isherwood, Oliver Patrick, Jack Nolan


Referee: Neil Hair

Assistant Referees: Thomas Harty and Ravel Cheosiaua

Fourth Official: Abbas Khan


Matthew Pennington was booked in the 59th minute when he caught Sean McConville with a high boot when trying to bring the ball down.

Mitch Clarke was booked in the 73rd minute for a late challenge on Luke Leahy just outside the box on the left-hand side.

Ross Sykes was also booked in the 83rd minute for an extremely late challenge on Dan Udoh when the forward was on the break.
