EX-FACTOR – MARC PUGH
Bournemouth Echo: STAR MAN: In-form Marc Pugh
The Cherries star played for Shrewsbury Town between 2007 and 2009.
He also plied his trade under Shrews boss Graham Turner during their time together at Hereford United.
Pugh flourished while working with Turner and finished the 2009-10 campaign as the Bulls’ leading marksman, earning him a move to Cherries.

FORM GUIDE
This bodes well for Cherries. Howe’s men are unbeaten in five in all competitions since his return and Shrewsbury are struggling on the road.
The Shropshire outfit, who were beaten 3-1 at non-league Hereford in the FA Cup on Saturday, have not won in seven away League One matches this term.
In their four games with Howe in the dugout, Cherries have scored 14 goals.
Past five league games…
Cherries – W D W W L
Shrews – D L L W L

MANAGER’S THOUGHTS – EDDIE HOWE
Bournemouth Echo: HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM: Cherries boss Eddie Howe
Howe told the Daily Echo: “Shrewsbury will be disappointed by the FA Cup game so they will have a point to prove and we have got to be very wary of them.
“From our perspective, we just have to look at our performance. If we can repeat the second-half showing that we produced against Dagenham, we will be in good shape.
“But we need to make sure that our good run doesn’t come to an end and we have got to be very respectful of whoever we play.
“They are a dangerous team and have dangerous individuals within that team – players that we were aware of during our first spell here.
“There are fine margins between the top and the bottom sides in every division and I don’t think there is a lot in. They deserve our full respect.
“Graham Turner has been in the game a long time, he is a very experienced manager, he has done a good job wherever he has been and his teams are always difficult to beat.
“I don’t want the players’ minds to be anywhere other than thinking this is going to be a difficult game and we have got to be at our best to win it.”

7:36pm

DANGERMAN – MARVIN MORGAN
The 29-year-old frontman had a decent scoring record during his time with Aldershot.
Following a loan spell with Dagenham & Redbridge, the striker joined Shrewsbury in June 2011.
Morgan helped fire the Shrews to promotion last season following his release from Aldershot.
He has netted five goals in 16 appearances for Graham Turner’s team this term.

7:34pm

THE GAFFER – GRAHAM TURNER
Turner is one of the most experienced managers in the Football League.
A Shrewsbury legend, he returned to the club for a second spell in charge in July 2010.
Following a play-off near-miss in his first season, the 65-year-old guided the Shrews to promotion from League Two as runners-up last term.
A versatile player with Wrexham and Chester City, Turner joined Shrewsbury for £30,000 in 1973. He was promoted to player-manager midway through the 1978-79 season.
He masterminded the Shropshire outfit’s third division title triumph and also led them to the FA Cup quarter-finals.
Appointed as Aston Villa manager in 1984, Turner spent two years at Villa Park before being handed the reins at Wolves.
Following a successful eight-year spell with Wolves, he took over at Hereford United at the start of the 1995-96 season.
He led the club back into the Football League and then to League One, by which stage he was also chairman at Edgar Street.
The vastly-experienced manager last season received the Contribution to League Football Award at the Football League Awards in recognition of his service to the game.

Unfortunately months ago we bought tickets for the Mayflower in Southampton tonight. I will be checking in at half time, hoping to see we have a 2 goal lead.

Good luck to whoever plays !

Yes, good luck to them.

You might see Harry Redknapp there as he's favourite to take the Saints job. Seen in a well known New Forest hotel with some suits today.
