Shrewsbury Town return to Sky Bet League One action this Saturday as they make the trip to Adams Park to play Wycombe Wanderers.

Town come into the fixture off the back of a 3-2 victory at home to Carlisle United in the EFL Cup First Round on Tuesday. Goals from Luke Leahy, Dan Udoh and Chey Dunkley helped secure the win. Town got their equaliser in first-half injury time courtesy of a Luke Leahy free-kick before going on to win the tie thanks to Udoh and Dunkley's close-range finishes.

Wycombe also won their cup tie, beating Northampton Town away 2-1 thanks to goals from Joe Jacobson and D’Mani Mellor in the first half. In the league, the Chairboys enjoyed a 3-0 opening day victory at home to Burton Albion courtesy of strikes by David Wheeler, Anis Mehmeti and Josh Scowen respectively. Their last outing however ended in defeat, as they were beaten 3-0 away at Bolton Wanderers last Saturday.
