Shrewsbury Town face a managerless Rochdale side seeking to extend their recent unbeaten record.
The 0-0 draw against AFC Wimbledon was not the ideal scenario for Shrewsbury fans; who largely expected their side to dismantle the basement club.
But back-to-back victories against promotion contenders Doncaster and Peterborough; has lifted the doom and gloom around the club.
Town will face additional pressure to beat a managerless Rochdale side who are embroiled in a relegation battle of their own.
They will have to undertake this task without midfield enforcer Anthony Grant, who serves the final match of his two-game ban.
Steve Arnold suffered an arm injury in a collision last time out; but he may be fit enough to feature.
Romain Vincelot remains absent with a knee problem; whilst Lenell John-Lewis will play no further part this season and beyond.
Town are looking for their first away victory against Rochdale since February 2001; where they thrashed their hosts 7-1.
Rochdale sacked club stalwart Keith Hill this week; and unsurprisingly former Shrewsbury boss Paul Hurst is the favourite to take the job.
First team coach Brian-Barry Murphy will take charge, and he will be without suspended midfielder Ethan Hamilton.
Former Wolves stopped Andy Lonergan has had his emergency loan extended, but Josh Lillis (calf) is unavailable. Zach Clough remains a doubt with a groin injury.
Rochdale lost 2-0 against Luton last time out; and currently occupy 22nd place in League One.
