Asa Hall: Back from his ban

Asa Hall: Back from his ban

Team news for Good Friday's League One clash between Shrewsbury Town and Crewe Alexandra at Greenhous Meadow.

Shrewsbury have been dealt a double blow ahead of their crucial clash with fellow strugglers Crewe.

Sam Foley was recalled by his parent club Yeovil on Wednesday, while Dave McAllister was ruled out for the rest of the season with a persistent ankle problem.

Asa Hall returns from a one-game suspension but the Shrews will continue without Joseph Mills as he completes his three-match ban.

Mike Jackson's side head into the game two points from safety with only four matches remaining.

Max Clayton could return to the Crewe squad for the first time since November in their crunch League One meeting with Shrewsbury.

The teenage striker has been out of action due to an ankle problem but has slowly been building for a return. It would be a timely comeback too given top scorer Chuks Aneke is banned for three matches following his dismissal against Wolves last time out.

Boss Steve Davis has concerns over midfielders Anthony Grant (thigh) and Abdul Osman (knee), while striker Vadaine Oliver (groin) is also struggling.

Grant and Oliver are expected to be okay but Osman looks unlikely to play in either of Crewe's Easter fixtures, leaving him sidelined along with defender Harry Davis (knee) and forward Ryan Colclough (stomach).
