Bradshaw: Back in action this weekend

Bradshaw: Back in action this weekend

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Shrewsbury Town and Hereford at the Greenhous Meadow (kick-off 1pm).

Shrewsbury welcome back strikers Tom Bradshaw and James Collins for the local derby.

Bradshaw will be hoping to continue where he left off for Wales Under-21s on Tuesday as he scored a debut goal and also struck the crossbar in an otherwise disappointing 3-1 defeat to Montenegro.

Fellow frontman Collins has also been on international duty with the Republic of Ireland's Under-21s and, unlike Bradshaw who just missed last Saturday's 1-0 win at Gillingham, was also unavailable for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Walsall.

But the pair will find it tough to break into a winning Shrews side which has remained unchanged for four matches, barring the JPT defeat against the Saddlers in which manager Graham Turner freshened up his side.

Winger Jon Taylor continued his recovery from food poisoning by getting vital minutes under his belt for the club's reserves in midweek, as did Steve Leslie, Reuben Hazell, Matt Richards and Connor Goldson, each of whom were unused substitutes at Priestfield.

Meanwhile, Bulls boss Jamie Pitman has some welcome selection decisions to make as three players return after being sidelined.

Midfielders Rob Purdie (thigh) and Joe Colbeck as well as defender Stefan Stam (hamstring) have resumed training this week and, barring any ill-effects, will come back into contention at the Greenhous Meadow.

But manager Pitman saw his side build on impressive points at AFC Wimbledon and Bristol Rovers with a first league victory of the season against Dagenham last weekend and could opt to name an unchanged XI for the third successive match.

Sam Winnall stepped off the bench, though, to bag the only goal of the game late on against the Daggers and will be another pushing to start this weekend.

Goalkeeper Adam Bartlett continues to miss out with his thigh injury.
