Worcester City Prematch

3 August 2012

Prematch look ahead of tonight's trip to Worcester

We are aiming to bring full match commentary of this evenings game on ShrewsPlayer

Shrewsbury Town conclude their public pre-season preparations with a trip to Worcester City tonight (7.45pm).
 
After a trio of encouraging displays against Championship clubs, it's a different sort of test for Graham Turner's side as they face a Blue Square North team at St George's Lane.
 
Travelling supporters are likely to recognise some familiar faces given the Worcester squad features a trio of former Shrewsbury players.
 
Goalkeeper Glyn Thompson, experienced defender Stuart Whitehead and former USA under-20 international midfielder Jay Denny - remember his two goals in a Carling Cup tie against Brighton at Gay Meadow? - have all signed for Worcester this summer.
 
Worcester are expecting their toughest test of pre-season so far as they look to build on victories over youthful West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa sides.
 
Town have produced impressive displays in the last week, beating Leicester City 2-0 and then playing out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Wolves.
 
Now manager Graham Turner is looking forward to taking his side to Worcester.
 
"I've yet to decide whether we take everybody and give everybody a part of the game," said Graham. "I know there's lads needing 90 minutes and there's one or two that haven't had a lot of game time.
 
"Jon Taylor, Tom Bradshaw, people like that need some more game time, so we'll have a look how training goes, have a look how the players are feeling, and the important thing is to ready for Leeds a week on Saturday.
 
"We'll see how we use this Worcester game to our best advantage."

Admission to tonight's game will cost £7, £5 concessions, £2 16-21 and U16s £2.
