Ticket prices for Tuesday's game have been cut to £15 for adults and £1 for kids while the game will also no longer be broadcasted, meaning Shrewsbury stand to make significantly less money.

The League One club's manager told the Mirror that the revenue is "vitally important" for a club like theirs.
