Shrewsbury v West Ham Betting Preview
Stadium: New Meadow
Shrewsbury hope to pull off an FA Cup upset when they host West Ham United. They are having a fantastic season, near the top of League One. They are unbeaten in their last eight games. They were tipped for relegation at the start of the season but they are the surprise package and are pushing for automatic promotion. Their defence has been extremely strong – they have only conceded four league goals at home, the joint best record in all four of the top divisions.
West Ham are revitalised under David Moyes. A valuable point was gained at Wembley against Spurs and they have lost just two of their last eight games.
Shrewsbury’s second choice keeper Craig MacGillivrat will be in goal as Dean Henderson has not been given permission to play by parent club Man United. Left-back Max Lowe is available after signing from Derby on loan.
West Ham are likely to be without Arnautovic, Cresswell and Antonio.
Potential Shrewsbury Starting XI: MacGillivrat; Bolton, Sadler, Nsiala, Beckles; Ogogo, Whalley, Nolan, Morris, Gnahoua; Payne
Potential West Ham Starting XI: Hart, Rice, Reid, Ogbonna, Burke, Kouyate, Obiang, Cullen, Masuaku, Ayew and Hernandez.
Shrewsbury 3/1, Draw 5/2 , West Ham 1/1
- West Ham to win – 1/1
