As the government rolls out their new coronavirus tier-system, Shropshire has been placed in Tier 2 when the country comes out of lockdown on Wednesday December 2.

This means that both Town and Bucks will be allowed a maximum of 2,000 fans in their grounds for the first time since March.

Shrewsbury host Accrington Stanley on December 2, so will likely see fans return for that game.

Due to the fixture list, however, Telford may have to wait until Boxing Day when they host Chester.

Gavin Cowan's side do host Hereford on December 1, but unless the game is moved to the next day they will not be able to have fans return.
