Last Time Out
The Cobblers beat Charlton Athletic 3-2 on Tuesday night at The Valley while Shrewsbury’s last outing was the 2-1 defeat at Peterborough last weekend.
One To Watch
Dan Udoh is joint top scorer for the Shrews this season and netted the winner in our last meeting back in October.
The Nigerian forward came through the youth systems at Luton and Stevenage before spending a lot of time on loan from Kidderminster and Crewe at non-league clubs. Udoh spent one season at Telford where he scored nineteen goals before making the move to the New Meadow in 2019.
Seb Stockbridge is in charge of Saturday’s game. Stockbridge last oversaw a Cobblers game back in April of last year when we beat Harrogate Town 3-1 at Sixfields. Andy Bennett and Alan Cresswell are running the lines and Damith Bandara is fourth official.
This has become a lot trickier over the last few days with a welcome party set to take place for Paul Hurst. I think he”ll have his players up for it so I’ll go for a 1-1 draw.
