Salop welcome Brighton & Hove Albion Under-21s to The Croud Meadow this evening knowing defeat could well be terminal.

Defeat to the Premier League youngsters tonight, coupled with Forest Green Rovers getting at least a point against Walsall next month, would end Town’s Wembley ambitions before they had really got going.

That won’t stop head coach Taylor from ringing the changes – though the team will retain a senior look to it.
