Shrewsbury buoyed by their 2-1 away win over Oldham Athletic in their last League One outing would be hoping to deliver more of the same in front of their home faithful.

The hosts are currently in ruthless form coming into the clash bagging five wins in a row in their last five matches and their manager P. Hurst will be more than delighted if his charges deliver more of the same at home.

The hosts are currently on the summit of the League One table with twenty-two points from eight matches played.

Blackburn Rovers travel to face Shrewsbury targeting to snatch the maximum points on the road.

The former premier league side will be aiming to bounce back from their 1-0 frustrating home loss to Wimbeldon in their last League one match.

Despite their latest loss the visitors have been in good form coming into the clash managing four wins in their last five matches something the hosts would have to worry about.

The visitors currently lie eleventh in the League One chart with twelve points from seven matches.
