Chief Inspector Dave McWilliam, the match day commander, said: “It is important we have sufficient officers in and around the ground to support club safety staff, as well as in Shrewsbury town centre to deal with any outbreaks of disorder.

“We are hoping the day will not be marred by trouble but anyone causing problems or involved in disorder, is likely to be arrested.”
