Football - Turner could stick

Graham Turner must decide whether to name an unchanged side as Shrewsbury chase back-to-back wins for the first time this season at home to promotion hopefuls Sheffield United.

Shrews disposed of Preston 2-1 at Deepdale last weekend to ease their relegation fears and Turner will certainly be tempted to go again with the same XI.

Winger Jon Taylor was forced off towards the end of the clash nursing a knock but he should be okay to face the Blades.

Defender Jermaine Grandison faces at least a further couple of weeks in the sidelines with his hip injury while long-term absentee Mark Wright continues to struggle with his ongoing knee problem and will also be assessed towards the end of this month.

Town are expecting a bumper crowd close to 7,000 for the fixture.
