Shrewsbury Town welcome Forest Green Rovers to Montgomery Waters Meadow this Saturday in the Sky Bet League One. Kick-off is at 3pm.

Shrewsbury come into the game after their 1-0 win away at MK Dons on Tuesday night. Tom Bayliss scored in the 89th minute to secure a third consecutive win for Salop. This comes after Town thrashed Cambridge United 5-1 at the Meadow last Saturday.

Meanwhile, visitors Forest Green were beaten in the week as they lost 1-0 away at Bolton Wanderers. Last Saturday, they suffered a 2-1 defeat at home against Milton Keynes Dons with Myles Peart-Harris scoring the opener for Forest Green.

This will be just the second time in the Football League these sides have faced each other. Earlier on in the season, Shrewsbury won 2-0 at The New Lawn Stadium.
