Shrewsbury Town return to Montgomery Waters Meadow on Saturday afternoon as they welcome Lincoln City to Shropshire.
Spirits are extremely high at the minute for Town as they come into this on the back of two emphatic wins. A 5-0 win at home to Morecambe last Tuesday was compounded by Saturday’s 3-0 win away to league-leaders Rotherham United boosted Salop’s chances of a late top-half finish.
Lincoln make the trip to Shropshire without a win in two games following a 0-0 draw at home to Sunderland and then a 2-1 defeat away to Rotherham.
Michael Appleton’s side are currently two places behind Salop in 18th position and will be looking to steal all three points from Steve Cotterill’s side after being frustrated by Salop when the points were shared in a 1-1 draw at Sincil Bank back in October.

The 22-year-old has been the Imps' most creative player this season, grabbing eight goals and seven assists, he tops both charts for goals and assists at the club.
The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has been on a goal drought though recently, failing to score since a 2-0 home win over Oxford United at the beginning of January. Despite the drought though he still poses a massive threat and will be the one to look out for on Saturday.
