PREVIEW: Shrewsbury

access_time 9 years ago


The Shrews have won three and lost three of their last six games, however they have lost their two matches which has left them balanced precariously in 18th place, just four points off the relegation zone.
Last time out…

Graham Turner’s side had no fixture midweek but last Saturday lost 3-1 away at Dean Smith’s Walsall. Dave McAllister grabbed a late consolation for the away side but the damage was done as the Saddlers had raced into a 3-0 lead within 54 minutes.
Turner was left fuming by the performance as he commented: “It was our worst performance of the season. As a side we have to think why we were so poor. We have to get over this to begin moving forwards and work out why we had so many poor performances.”

Lively winger Jon Taylor is a doubt having missed the last few games though has an outside chance. Likewise Sheffield United loanee Chris Porter is a doubt.
Last time we met… 

Orient ran out 2-1 winners at Brisbane Road back on November 10. Two goals from Kevin Lisbie ended a four match losing streak for the O’s that day. 
One to watch…

If he is fit then Taylor is one of the most dangerous wide players in the division and scored an excellent goal at Brisbane Road back in November and has seven goals from midfield this season. Otherwise Marvin Morgan leads the goalscoring chart and is always a handful.
