The Cods come into the game off the back of a narrow defeat away to Barnsley. Despite Admiral Muskwe scoring a late equalising penalty from 12-yards out, it wasn't enough to take a point back to the Fylde Coast.

Town did lose their Boxing Day fixture at home to Sheffield Wednesday, however, only two away trips ago, Town did pick up a win against MK Dons, with Carl Johnston and Dan Batty scoring second half goals.

Scott Brown’s side will be hoping to start the year of 2023 in the right way and win the return fixture over Shrewsbury Town - which was lost at Highbury back in October.



Similarly, to Fleetwood, Shrewsbury don’t come into this one in particularly great form either. A Boxing Day loss to Cambridge and a home defeat at the hands of Cheltenham Town make this game a big one for Steve Cotterill’s men. Like Town, the Shrews’ last victory was on the 10 December against Bolton in a six-goal thriller.

With the Shropshire based side sitting just three places and three points above the Cods, this makes for an exciting encounter. With both teams looking to begin the New Year with a win, with both also aspiring to climb the table, Sunday’s game is going to be an interesting one to say the least.



“We competed and I think we deserved more than we got at the end, we played some good football and made some chances and controlled the game at times with possession. But it’s alright saying that but if you don’t put balls into the box, and make teams defend, then it becomes a problem.

“[Cian] Hayes has come on and he did brilliantly for the goal. It’s a lovely pass and was a great run from Admiral [Muskwe] as well – he also did well pulling the trigger from the penalty spot. I’m not sure how he [Mags Andersen] wasn’t sent off but it happens.

“The lads will keep on working, they give so much in every single game and want to play good football, but there always comes a time when we might have to change things up a little bit. If we can’t defend in the box, we might have to change style to be a little bit more solid throughout.”

Match Reports

Report: Three points and goals kicks off Town's 2023 in style

1 January 2023

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town coasted to a 3-0 win over Shrewsbury Town at the Montgomery Waters Meadow as they kicked off the New Year with three points.

It was a quickfire double in the first half and one more late on that secured the points on the afternoon; Admiral Muskwe converted his second spot kick in as many games to break the deadlock before Promise Omochere opened his account for Town with a poacher's finish from inside the area.

Captain Josh Vela made it three just before added time, which saw the Cods coast to their first victory of the year in Shropshire.

It took a while for both sides to find a foothold in the game as the first chance took 16 minutes to show itself. It was a wild effort from defender Josh Earl, whose eyes lit up on the edge of the box when the ball rolled to him, but his effort flew high and wide of the home side’s goal.

The game burst into life just after the 20-minute mark as Shaun Rooney saw his header from a corner smash against the inside of the post, before Brendan Wiredu’s effort on goal was blocked by Matt Pennington’s arm on the line, which resulted in a penalty and a red card for the defender.

For the second game in a row, the Cod Army saw Muskwe convert a spot kick and reel off towards the travelling support. Another was added three minutes later as Omochere netted his first for the club, showing poacher’s instincts in the box to slot past Marko Marosi from six yards out.

It could have easily been three on the half-hour mark as Danny Andrew stormed down the left and played a deep cross towards Town’s second goalscorer of the afternoon, with the Irishman heading the ball towards goal only for Jordan Shipley to throw his body in the way to stop a certain goal.

There was a chance apiece either side of the half with Wiredu putting all his weight behind a venomous strike from inside the area, which was blocked, before Rob Street had Shrewsbury’s first effort on goal four minutes after the break, nodding Taylor Moore’s cross over the bar.

Scott Brown’s side carried on pressing forwards in search of their third in the game, with Omochere providing a brilliant solo run in one attack – going from box to box, but Cian Hayes’ cross was blocked on that occasion. Soon after, Josh Vela had an effort on goal, but it was saved by Marosi.

As the game started to slow down, two more chances fell Town’s way – Andrew worked a yard of space on the edge of the box and hit the inside of the post with his shot and Josh Vela had one in the net four minutes later, but he was deemed to be in an offside position when shooting.

With the last chance of the game, it was Vela who would make it three on the night as substitute Carlos Mendes Gomes played the ball to him on the right, with the midfielder then driving in towards goal and firing into the bottom left - securing all three points on New Year's Day.

Salop XI: Marosi (GK), Leahy (C), Pennington, Moore, Winchester, Street (Pyke 69’), Bayliss (Bloxham 54’), Dunkley, Saydee, Shipley, Flanagan (Bennett 18’).

Unused subs: Burgoyne (GK), O’Brien, Barlow, Bailey.

Town XI: Lynch (GK), Andrew, Wiredu, Vela (C), Muskwe, Warrington, Omochere (Mendes Gomes 83'), Hayes (Morton 66’), Nsiala, Rooney (Johnston 58’), Earl.

Unused subs: Stolarczyk (GK), J.Garner, G.Garner, Batty.
