Graham Turner is likely to keep faith with the same starting XI yet again as Shrewsbury look to seal promotion with a victory this weekend.

Turner has named an unchanged side for the last five successive matches, with last weekend's 1-1 draw at Accrington ending a run of four consecutive wins but keeping the club's unbeaten run going.

And, with no new injury or suspension concerns, he is expected to see no reason for change as Town look for the three points which will clinch third-tier football next season, while a draw or even defeat may be enough based on results elsewhere.

Shrewsbury are set for a record attendance at the Greenhous Meadow after over 9,000 tickets sold out for the clash.

Should they avoid defeat, Shrews will also be the only team in the Football League to have gone unbeaten on home soil this season, with Manchester City the only other side in the top four levels of English football to have shared the same success in 2011/12.

Meanwhile, John Still has no new injury or suspension concerns as Dagenham look to spoil Shrewsbury's promotion party.

The Daggers boss could well keep faith with the same XI who drew 1-1 at home to high-flying Crawley last weekend, mathematically securing the club's npower League Two status.

Forward Josh Scott came in for Dominic Green as the only change and the latter will be pushing for a recall, as will the likes of fit-again Luke Howell and Josh Parker.

Fellow midfielder Peter Gain could make the bench having now got three friendly matches under his belt upon his return from a knee injury.

Jon Nurse (abductor), Sam Williams (knee), Kevin Maher (metatarsal) and Matt Saunders (ankle) continue to miss out.

Dagenham will have a maximum of 300 fans at the Greenhous Meadow after Shrews sold out the stadium due to high home demand, with the Shropshire club set for a club-record attendance as they aim for the victory which would secure their promotion.
