Town go into the home encounter knowing victory will clinch a top-three finish and third-tier football for the first time since 1997, while a draw or even defeat may be enough based on results elsewhere.

Over 9,000 Shrewsbury supporters have got their hands on a ticket, meaning the Shropshire club's previous highest gate of 8,817 against Oxford on the final day of last season is set to be eclipsed.

Shrewsbury club secretary Jayne Bebb said: "The response from Shrewsbury fans has been fantastic. We always knew there would be a high demand for tickets and it is great for the team to know there will be a big crowd behind them.

"We were pleased to reach agreement with both Dagenham and the Football League to allow Shrewsbury supporters to be admitted to the North Stand, usually reserved for away fans, for the first time and the last of the tickets were sold earlier this morning (Tuesday).

"It underlines the level of excitement among Shrewsbury Town supporters and everyone is now looking forward to Saturday."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
