    Away Match Day Thread +++ 07/03/20 Shrewsbury Town v OUFC +++

    Every game is a big one now as we fight to get back into the play-offs. Shrewsbury are managed by a duo who met as teenagers at OUFC: Sam Ricketts and Dean Whitehead. Shrews supporters don't like Ricketts much as he has concentrated on defensive tactics to keep them away from the relegation...
