Shrewsbury Town and former Birmingham City manager Steve Cotterill is recovering in hospital after spending time in intensive care having caught coronavirus.

Cotterill's assistant Aaron Wilbraham gave an update on Cotterill’s condition ahead of Shrewsbury's FA Cup match at Southampton tomorrow: "Steve has been in intensive care and it has been quite worrying.”
