Match Preview: Plymouth Argyle V Shrewsbury Town

Shrewsbury Town make the lengthy journey to Plymouth on Tuesday evening looking to make amends for their weekend defeat.

Shrewsbury’s disappointing 2-1 defeat against relegation rivals Rochdale has fuelled concern about their survival chances.

A disappointing defensive display and the inability to take and create chances; are not traits that Sam Ricketts will be particularly fond of.

But the former Wales international can welcome back influential midfielder Anthony Grant; who has served his two-match suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards.

Defender James Bolton sustained an ankle injury in a freak gym accident, and the club are keeping their fingers crossed as they await the scan results.

Romain Vincelot (knee) is making good progress but remains absent; whilst John-Lewis will play no further part this campaign.

Ricketts may shuffle his pack, with Josh Laurent, Aaron Amadi-Holloway, and Scott Golbourne pushing for a recall.

Town’s last away victory against Plymouth came in August 2001 – thanks to Nigel Jemson’s solitary strike.

The home side will be without midfielder Joel Grant (shoulder) for the rest of the season. Goalkeeper Kyle Letheren (groin) may return to the fold.

Everton loanee Conor Grant suffered a thigh injury in a reserve game a couple of weeks ago; and may remain side-lined.

Lloyd James was ineligible to face his parent club in the 0-0 draw against table-toppers Luton; but is likely to return to action.

Plymouth Argyle currently occupy 15th place.
