After seven seasons in League two, mostly spent around mid-table, Carlisle were hoping to push on towards a long-awaited return to the third tier in 2022.

Things have not gone to plan, however, and a shocking run featuring just one win in 16 games saw them sat in the relegation zone.

The Blues clawed their way out of the bottom two on Saturday, though, with a 1-0 win at home to Walsall, thanks to Tristan Abrahams‘s late winner in the 88th minute.

They then followed that up with a win on penalties over League One Lincoln City in the EFL Trophy during the week and new manager Keith Millen will be hoping this is the start of a turnaround.

His side were given a fairly easy task in the first round of the FA Cup, beating non-league Horsham 2-0 in one of their first matches under Millen’s tutelage.

Shrewsbury will likely prove a far tougher nut to crack, despite their recent inconsistent form in League One.

This is the club’s seventh consecutive season in the third tier and, bar an outlier with their third-placed finish during the 2017-18 campaign, they have spent the entire time narrowly avoiding relegation.

Last season saw them finish 17th and things have going in a similar direction so far this term with the Shrews sat in 19th, two points above the relegation zone.

Carlisle wide-man and former Manchester United academy prospect Joe Riley will be out for a few weeks with a shoulder injury.

That could see Jordan Gibson continue on the right after a solid performance against Lincoln in midweek as Millen continues with his preferred 4-4-2 formation.

Midfielder Brennan Dickenson also looks set to remain on the sidelines with the manager saying “it’s one step forward, one step back at the moment”.

Elliot Bennett returned to the Shrews’ midfield against Charlton, having served his suspension for a red card against Cheltenham, and the 32-year-old should retain his spot after the strong result upon his return.

Cotterill has generally stuck by his favoured three-at-the-back setup, even through the tough run of results, so expect that to remain the same on Saturday.

Carlisle United possible starting lineup:
Howard; Mellor, Whelan, McDonald, Armer; Gibson, Mellish, Guy, Clough; Abrahams, Alessandra

Shrewsbury Town possible starting lineup:
Marosi; Pennington, Ebanks-Landell, Nurse; Bennett, Vela, Davis, Leahy, Ogbeta; Udoh, Bowman
