Storey: In contention for Robins

Storey: In contention for Robins

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Swindon Town and Shrewsbury at County Ground.

Swindon have no fresh injury worries as they look to make it seven games unbeaten against their weekend opponents

Paolo Di Canio's in-form side kept their run going with a late equaliser at Bournemouth and the Italian is likely to name a similar line-up again.

Young striker Miles Storey is back in training and could be in contention while Jay McEveley is edging closer to a return but this game comes too soon for the left-back.

Former Tottenham defender Troy Archibald-Henville is still sidelined following a knee operation and treatment.

Paul Benson is back at The County Ground after his loan at Portsmouth expired and the striker is another option for Di Canio.

The Robins are six points off the automatic promotion places and have conceded just eight goals at home all season.

Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner is not expected to have any new injury or suspension concerns for the trip.

Midfielder Mark Wright has suffered a fresh setback in his bid to recover from a knee injury and faces several more weeks on the sidelines.

Striker Ryan Doble, however, is stepping up his recovery from a hand injury.

Numerous players will be in contention for recalls following last weekend's disappointing 1-1 draw at home to bottom club Hartlepool.

Striker Tom Bradshaw bagged a hat-trick for Town's reserves in a 4-1 win over Morecambe in midweek and is at the head of the queue.

Defenders Yado Mambo and Cameron Gayle as well as midfielders Luke Summerfield, Stephen McGinn and Paul Parry also have a chance of starting at the County Ground.
