Rotherham United go to the Greenhous Meadow today with new manager, Steve Evans, taking charge for the first time.
The Shrews haven't lost at home all season, which is quite an achievement while the Millers have never actually won at the Greenhous Meadow but, with having a new man at the helm, it could all change.
Shrewsbury are in third place in League Two having won four of their last five games and not losing since mid-March, surprisingly to lowly Plymouth. The Millers have also won four of their last five games, the only loss being to their new bosses side, Crawley, last month. In tenth place they still have a faint hope of being in a play-off spot come the end of the season.
Graham Turner - Rotherham are a very experienced side with a number of players who can score goals. The players will want to prove to the new manager that they are worth a place in the side and that will make it a little bit more difficult for us. But, if we perform well, we will take the three points.
Steve Evans - I think Shrewsbury will be automatically promoted but we want to go down there and put a dent in that and keep our hopes of being in the play-offs alive. Graham has got an outstanding squad in place who are all over strong and well disciplined. There supporters are very vocal and will be right behind them. They've got goalscorers and big central defenders but we'll go down there and match them in effort and commitment and I'd like to see Shrewsbury's reaction if we went into the lead.
Graham Turner has a full squad to pick from with Jon Taylor expecting to be fit after jarring his knee in training this week
Attacking right-back who is quick and powerful and entertains the crowd with the odd step-over
Michael Raynes has tweaked his hamstring so Ryan Cresswell, who scored the winner on Easter Monday, will keep his place. Mark Bradley came through the Reserve game on Tuesday and will travel with the squad. A surprise inclusion in the squad might be Marcus Marshall who we understand has been recalled from Macclesfield
Now fully fit after a stop-start season, Cress scored the last minute winner on Monday and will want to get his head to a few more balls in the area

The Millers entertain Morecambe at Don Valley next Saturday where it will be a 3.00pm kick-off
