Pre-Season Preview | Shrewsbury Town vs. Cardiff City

Montgomery Waters Meadow - Tuesday, 25th July 2017, 7pm...

24 July 2017

After a 2-2 draw in 2015 and a 4-0 win in 2016, the Bluebirds head to Shrewsbury to face the Salop side for the third consecutive pre-season…

The opposition...

After a difficult start to last season, new Shrews boss Paul Hurst steered the club to League One safety with an eighteenth placed finish. Town ended the season three places above the drop zone, with two points between themselves and Port Vale in twenty-first position.

So far this summer, Hurst has added no fewer than ten signings to his Shrewsbury squad. Midfielder Jon Nolan has joined from recently relegated Chesterfield, whilst former Newport County striker Lenell John-Lewis has moved across the border to join the Shrews.

On loan, Town have added Norwich pair Carlton Morris and Ebou Adams, along with young Welsh winger Daniel James.

Pre-season so far...

Salop have enjoyed some impressive pre-season results already this summer, winning both of their home friendly matches. Both wins came against Championship opposition, with a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa on July 15th, and a 2-0 win over Wolves a week later. However, the Shrews have also tasted defeat twice already, with away losses at Brackley Town and Shawbury United in the past month.

Following our encounter on Tuesday evening, the Shrews will face AFC Telford away from home, before completing their pre-season schedule with a visit from our first Championship opponents of the season, Burton Albion. On August 5th, Shrewsbury will begin their Sky Bet League One season with a home match against Northampton Town.

Club Connections...

Two ex-City wingers have also pulled on the blue and yellow Shrewsbury jersey - Paul Parry and Liam Lawrence.

After five years and an FA Cup Final performance with the Bluebirds, former Welsh international Parry joined Preston North End before spending two seasons with the Shrews. Paul made seventy appearances and scored seven goals before his retirement in 2014.

Lawrence joined Cardiff on loan in January 2012, making twelve appearances and scoring once. Liam joined Shrewsbury in 2014, featuring sixty-two times for Salop as part of the side that earned promotion from League Two in 2015.

Other past players to have turned out for both teams include Anthony Gerrard, Joe Jacobson and Aaron Wildig.

Pre-Season Report | Shrewsbury Town 2-1 Cardiff City

City play out their penultimate pre-season match at the Montgomery Waters Meadow...

25 July 2017

The Bluebirds fell to their first defeat of pre-season at the Montgomery Waters Meadow, with two quick-fire second half goals enough to win it for Shrewsbury.

The Bluebirds started brightly in the opening period, going close through Nathaniel Mendez-Laing. Striker Kenneth Zohore played a clever reverse pass which released the summer signing in the Shrews box.

After cutting inside his man, Mendez-Laing was unable to find the target with the finish, seeing the ball cleared away. From the resulting throw-in, Zohore saw an effort from inside the box blocked by Salop keeper Dean Henderson. 

The two attacking Bluebirds combined again after thirteen minutes, through a move that began with an exquisite Lee Tomlin pass. His outside-of-the-boot ball found Mendez-Laing on the far flank, before a pass to Zohore ended in a corner kick.

Tomlin again showed his quality six minutes later, with a free kick which dipped narrowly over the crossbar. 

Despite some better play from the hosts later on in the half, City took a deserved lead a minute before the interval. Tenacious work from Zohore saw him win back a seemingly lost ball, before cleverly spinning his man in the area. On hand was Mendez-Laing, who neatly applied the finishing touch to put Cardiff ahead at the break. 

Shrewsbury built on their improved play towards the end of the first half, coming quickly out of the blocks in the second period. Their efforts were rewarded after only five minutes of the half, when Lee Peltier was adjudged to have brought down Shaun Whalley inside the City box. The same player stepped up moments later to convert the spot-kick, despite the best efforts of Neil Etheridge who got a touch on the ball.

Almost instantaneously, Salop completed the turnaround through Louis Dodds. Whalley was again instrumental, seeing his first effort from inside the box saved. However, Dodds was on hand to follow up, smartly slotting the ball into the net. 

In response, the Bluebirds had a number of chances; namely Anthony Pilkington’s free kick which deflected narrowly wide, and Danny Ward’s fiercely struck late effort, which again was inches away from the top corner.

However, it wasn’t enough to prevent a first defeat of the summer, with Livingston up next at CCS for our final friendly before League action gets underway.
