Fleetwood Town are set to face Shrewsbury Town at Highbury Stadium on Saturday 15 October, and we have all the information you need to know ahead of the 3pm kick-off in our match preview.

Fixture: Fleetwood Town v Shrewsbury Town

Competition: Sky Bet League One

Date: Saturday 15 October 2022

Kick-off: 15:00

Venue: Highbury Stadium, Park Ave, Fleetwood, FY7 6SP

FLEETWOOD TOWN

The Cods come into this game off the back of two brilliant away performances, with a 0-1 win over Burton Albion and a draw away at Portsmouth, last time out. Town have only lost once in their last eleven league games now. However, Town’s last fixture at Highbury, did end in a narrow 0-1 defeat to Barnsley.

In the Barnsley game, The Cods were unfortunate not to come away with anything but rectified their performance by taking a point from Fratton Park last weekend, where a goal from Carlos Mendes-Gomes was enough to ensure Town jumped back to 12th place in the league table.

After two positive results, The Cods will be looking to continue the form and perform well against Shrewsbury Town in front of their home fans this weekend.

SHREWSBURY TOWN

Shrewsbury have started the season in strong form, sitting 9th after the twelve games they have played so far. Their last outing ended in a 2-1 home win over MK Dons but before that were beaten 2-0 away to Cheltenham Town.

Jordan Shipley got the winning goal against MK Dons late in the first half and a 54th minute goal from Zak Jules couldn’t force The Dons back into the game. The Shrews haven’t been too good away from home this season, only winning two of their last five, which came against Wycombe Wanderers and Forest Green respectively.

WHAT THE MANAGER HAD TO SAY ON SHREWSBURY TOWN

“Shrewsbury have done well so far this season - we know they are going to counter-attack - hopefully we can have a lot of the ball as that would be nice. I’m sure it’s going to be a hard game; they’ve chopped and changed their formation a couple of times so we will just wait and see how they are going to set up for the game this weekend.

“As I always say, we don’t like to talk too much about the other teams in this league, it’s more about how we set up, how we play, and our game plan. I know it gets repetitive week in, week out but that’s how it is. You’ve got to make sure you are focused on your own team and not worry about others.

“Momentum is key in football; if you win two games, you are right up there and if you lose two, you will be a battle for relegation. We don’t want to be down at the bottom end, that’s for sure, and we know that it’s a huge game for us at home against Shrewsbury. They are two points ahead of us so it’s going to be a good contest and the lads are looking forward to it.”

Match Reports

Report: Town fall to a narrow home defeat against Shrewsbury

15 October 2022

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Shrewsbury Town at Highbury on Saturday afternoon.

Even after Town applied constant pressure on the visitors’ backline for the whole second half, they couldn’t manage to break through, meaning that Tom Bayliss’ first-half goal would be the difference in the Sky Bet League One clash.

The game struggled to entertain in the opening quarter hour but after a game of end-to-end possession, the Cods had a chance when Callum Morton put the ball out wide to Harvey Macadam whose fizzing effort on goal tested the visiting keeper.

The first sign of action from Shrewsbury came as striker Rekiel Pyke drilled an effort just wide of Jay Lynch in the Town goal. Town then came to life again when Lewis Warrington found Paddy Lane, whose effort was on target but didn’t trouble Shrewsbury’s goalkeeper, Marko Marosi too much.

Midway through the first half came the game's opener, when Shrewsbury midfielder Bayliss found space in the Town box in the 30th minute to pick out the top corner. Shrewsbury then had a period of dominance as Steve Cotterill’s side had a flurry of chances but couldn’t double their advantage.

Carlos Mendes-Gomes got involved in proceedings when he had a half chance which forced a save out of Marosi - but nothing came of the resulting corner.

That was it for the first half though, forty-five minutes that didn’t have too much to offer but Town went into the break a goal behind.

The second half began well for the Cods, and they started the better of the two sides. Mendes-Gomes had a chance in the 46th minute, which was wide of the target. After that came an effort by Danny Andrew, whose deflected shot struck the crossbar of Shrewsbury’s goal.

Town then kept up the pressure on the Shropshire visitors as Morton cut inside and came very close to putting the host's level on the scoresheet.

As the game hit the 60-minute mark, the Cods grew ever closer to an elusive equaliser. Andrew this time, whose shot was blocked and Town were awarded two corners in the space of four minutes.

In what was a more eventful half than the first, Town came closest to getting the second goal of the game. Town saw two penalty claims waived away after Morton was pushed in the box. Town defender Shaun Rooney then delivered a great cross into the box and substitute Joe Garner’s header was enough to test Marosi.

Mendes-Gomes, who was mostly involved in the first half had a chance in the 73rd minute when he took the ball around Shrewsbury’s keeper, but his effort was blocked by Taylor Moore.

The Cods still couldn’t find a way back into the match and in fact, were given a lifeline when Jordan Shipley’s powerful effort hit the inside of the post and somehow stayed out.

There was a slight delay in play as Cods skipper Josh Vela came in late on Shrewsbury captain Luke Leahy. Then the Shrewsbury number three caused a couple of minutes of disarray as the play didn’t resume for a few minutes.

The Cods, after all their efforts in the second half, couldn’t find a leveller and the game ended in a narrow, 0-1 defeat.

Town XI: Lynch (GK), Andrew, Mendes-Gomes (Batty 74’), Vela (C), Morton, Lane (J. Garner 57’), Warrington (Wiredu 85’), Rooney, Macadam (Hayes 85’), Earl, Baker.

Unused subs: Stolarczyk (GK), Holgate, Johnston.

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