SHREWSBURY Academy U18 return to home action on Saturday when they take on Fleetwood Town.
The young Shrews are back in EFL Youth Alliance League action after several members of the squad were involved in Tuesday night’s Shropshire Senior Cup defeat to Whitchurch Town.
Last time out in the league, the young side travelled to Oldham Athletic where they lost 3-2, meaning they are yet to take any points on the road this season.
But they will be hoping to build on their impressive home form this Saturday. Their opponents Fleetwood have had a strong start to the season winning all three of their opening fixtures.
It will be a tough test for the Shrews, but will serve as a good indicator of how far they have come this season and test their ability to put defeats behind them.
