LEON CAN STAKE HIS CLAIM NOW
GRAHAM Turner has urged trialist Leon McSweeney to take advantage of Shrewsbury’s defensive crisis.
The Shrews boss is looking to increase his options at the back following James Tavernier’s enforced return to parent club Newcastle due to a metatarsal injury while Akwasi Asante has already been recalled by Birmingham.
“We thought we would have a look at Leon and see how it works out,” said Turner.
“We’ve had the problem at right-back although I thought Connor Goldson had his best game against Swindon and he’s staking a claim there.”
