Competition: League One

Market: Shrewsbury to beat Northampton

Odds: 11/8 @ Bet365

For Paul Hurst, his high-flying Shrewsbury side will look to briefly occupy top spot in League One if they can pick up another important three points on Tuesday night. Looking to spoil the party is a Northampton side who are involved in their own battle at the other end of the table.

For Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s Northampton Town side, despite the Cobblers finding some initial success under the former Chelsea striker, Northampton once again find themselves at a battle to secure their League One status. Now sat just a single place abover the relegation zone, the Cobblers are now just a single point away from the bottom three and their recent form has shown no signs of improving anytime soon. Hasselbaink’s side have now failed to win any of their last five appearances and their defensive issues continue to show. Northampton have now only kept one clean sheet in their last 18 matches and boast the second worst defensive record in the whole of League One.

As for the visitors on Tuesday night, Paul Hurst’s Shrewsbury side, The Shrews could not be enjoying their season anymore. After only avoiding the drop zone last year but just two points, Shrewsbury now find themselves second in the league and the chance of gaining promotion is growing more likely by the week. Now unbeaten in their last five matches and winning their last four games on the bounce, Shrewsbury now find themselves three points ahead of Wigan in third and they will travel to SixFields knowing a fifth consecutive win will see them briefly sit top of the League One table. It has been defensively where The Shrews have shone the most, they now boats the second best defensive record in the league and they have now conceded just one goal in their last four appearances.
