Tom Bradshaw: Hoping to start

Team news for Sunday's League One clash between Shrewsbury Town and Preston North End at the Greenhous Meadow.

Graham Turner is expected to make changes for Shrewsbury's home clash against promotion-chasing Preston.

The Town boss cut a frustrated figure after Boxing Day's disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Tranmere - a third on the spin at the Greenhous Meadow.

North End's visit just 72 hours later means the likes of fit-again Paul Parry, Cameron Gayle, Tom Bradshaw, David McAllister, Darren Jones, and John Marsden are all in contention for starting berths.

However, midfielder Aaron Wildig (knee) and defender Jermaine Grandison (match fitness) remain unavailable.

Preston will welcome back attacking duo Kevin Davies and Joe Garner when they travel to the New Meadow to face Shrewsbury.

Top-scorer Garner, who's notched six goals in as many starts, and veteran Davies both missed Boxing Day's 1-0 victory at Carlisle through suspension but will return to give boss Simon Grayson a welcome selection headache.

Loanee striker Paul Gallagher returned from his own ban to start at Brunton Park and will be hoping to keep his place in the starting XI having made six consecutive starts since signing prior to his straight red card.

The fourth-placed Lilywhites will be looking to stretch their run of just one league defeat in 11 and close the six-point gap to joint-leaders Leyton Orient and Wolves.
