Match Preview | Shrewsbury Town v Wanderers


After Emirates FA Cup progression secured on Saturday, Wanderers switch their focus quickly back to the bread and butter of Sky Bet League One on Tuesday night.

A trip to Shrewsbury Town awaits for Ian Evatt’s men in this rearranged fixture as the Whites look to kick on from recent fortunes.

Manager quotes

Ian Evatt:  “It's an opportunity for us to go and get some points on the board. Others aren't playing and it's a catch-up thing but for us it's just about another three points and the next game and the next challenge.

“Shrewsbury is always a difficult place to go. I think there are teams which have lost already there this season; big teams well, well-fancied teams and tonight will be no different.

“We know what to expect and we have to go there with the right mindset and attitude, first and foremost, and do the basics really, really well and then on top of the basics we need to add our quality.”

Form guide

Last time out, Shrewsbury edged past League Two side Colchester United to advance to the second round of the Emirates FA Cup thanks to goals from Udoh, Shipley and an own goal.

In terms of their recent form as a whole, October produced two wins, one draw and three defeats which included a relatively tough run of fixtures against Derby, Barnsley and Wigan.

Matt Taylor will be aiming to guide his side further away from the drop zone as they currently occupy the 18th position in Sky Bet League One.

As for Wanderers, they avoided any cup scare on Saturday thanks to a convincing four goal dispatch of Solihull Moors.

Seven wins in the last eight in all competitions leaves Wanderers in third position and hot on the tails of the automatic promotion places.
