Shrewsbury gained a surprisingly won against Portsmouth in opening round of season, then loose sgsindt MK Dons and in midweek was trashed 4-0 by Rotherham with a changed - but not too much - first eleven.
Hosts loose practically all last season keepers and defenders, only starters remained in that sector are key Beckles (def. 1sub) and Williams (def. 2/ 16 last season) so they needs time to gel, for this match will be a further change respect back line used in first two rounds, with Williams new missing. Shresbury has other players out, last season second scorer Norburn ( 9g), Sears ( def. 2+3 last season), John Lewis ( striker) and Laurent ( mdif.1sub). Just in last two hours midf. Goss and Thompson signed for the team and will be already available for this match.
Also Rochdale played in midweek with no huge turnover in cup and won 5-2 against poor Bolton, recovering for two times a temporary disavantage. They changed not too much respect last season and newcomer Ryan ( midf. 1sub) suspended is only player out, with Wilbraham ( att.16+7 4g last season) and McLaughlin ( def. 13) doubtful.
Trainer of Shrewsbury is a bit worried cause the many players missings that added to the number of players gone and new arrives make the team in transition, yet. In this situation Rochdale, undefeated in league and equalized by Doncaster in last league game only in injury time, can gain at least one point.
