Shrewsbury unlikely to make changes for Salford clash

Shrewsbury boss John Askey may stick with the same starting line-up which secured their first away win of the season at AFC Wimbledon when they face Salford in the FA Cup first round.

Goalkeeper Steve Arnold impressed on his league debut for the Shrews and could retain his place ahead of Huddersfield loanee Joel Coleman.

Aaron Amadi-Holloway played a pivotal role in just his fifth start for the club against the Dons and could retain his place in attack as Shrewsbury aim for successive victories for just the second time this season.

Abo Eisa (knee) and Shaun Whalley (calf) are unavailable for the League One outfit.

Salford will face the highest-ranked opposition in a competitive fixture in their history when they travel to Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Shrewsbury are two divisions and 32 places above the Ammies, who are currently on a 17-match unbeaten streak in all competitions.

Salford boss Graham Alexander has named the same starting line-up for the last 10 Vanarama National League matches, which have garnered seven wins and three draws, and is likely to remain with the settled team, with Adam Rooney leading from the front.

Midfielder Lois Maynard is pushing for a starting berth after netting a last-gasp equaliser at Eastleigh last Saturday, but he and club captain Liam Hogan look set for a place on the bench.
