Match Previews

In focus: Hull City match preview

19 March 2021

Take a closer look at the latest stats and facts in our match preview ahead of Town's Sky Bet League One clash with Hull City.

Shrewsbury Town face potentially the toughest test of the season with the visit of Hull City as Grant McCann's teams it at the top of the Sky Bet League One table. In their last five league fixtures, the away side have a perfect record with five wins on the bounce as they look to charge into the Sky Bet Championship.

Mallik Wilks is the dangerman at the top end of the pitch for the Tigers. The forward is enjoying a fruitful season having notched 17 goals already with plenty of time left to achieve 20 or more. In the engine room, the away side could have a familiar face. A fan favorite loanee, Greg Docherty spent one season on loan from Rangers at Montgomery Waters Meadow before leaving the SPL side to join City on a permanent basis.

However, the away side will have a tough task to deal with in Shropshire as Salop look to go on another unbeaten run. Town could extend another unbeaten run, like a number of times this season, after a win and a draw in the last 2. The draw coming away from home against a strong Charlton Athletic.

Match Reports

Match report: Shrewsbury Town 1 Hull City 1

20 March 2021

Shrewsbury Town secure a 1-1 draw against league leaders Hull City.

Town's Sky Bet League One fixture with Hull City ended with the two teams reaching a stalemate to earn a point.

Despite Nathanael Ogebeta putting Town in the lead with a free-kick, the away side managed to find a way back into the game with a strike from a distance from midfielder Greg Docherty.

Town did a nice job of limiting Hull to very little early on. It was Josh Vela who created the first chance for Salop. The midfielder won the ball deep in Hull territory, and managed to get a shot away that needed saving at the near post.

Shaun Whalley was the next to threaten on the counter. Driving from the half-way line and nutmegging a man on his way, Whalley managed to let off a low shot but the keeper was well position to prevent an opening goal.

The second half looked to be going in much the same direction as the first until Dan Udoh won a free-kick just outside the area. Nathanael Ogbeta was the man to step up, looping the ball over the wall and in off the bar - a wonder strike for the fullback’s first senior goal.

The Tigers got themselves back into the game through former Town man Greg Docherty. Docherty curled a nice strike into the top corner from 25 yards out to level things up.

Town nearly took the lead again through Ogbeta. The full-back overcooked a cross that ended up heading towards the far top corner and needed tipping over the bar by Matt Ingram.

Salop remained disciplined despite a large number of long balls  to secure a point against the league leaders taking four points off them with a win at the KCOM earlier in the season.

The teams:

Salop: Matija Sarkic, Ro-Shaun Williams, Shaun Whalley (Harry Chapman, 80), Ollie Norburn (David Edwards, 80), Josh Vela, Nathanael Ogbeta, Brad Walker (David Davis, 31), Josh Daniels, Daniel Udoh (Curtis Main, 73), Ethan Ebanks-Landell, Matthew Pennington.

Subs not used: Harry Burgoyne, Sean Goss, Rekeil Pyke.

Hull: Matt Ingram, Lewie Coyle, Callum Elder, Reece Burke, Mallik Wilks ( Tom Eaves, 89), George Honeyman, Alfie Jones, Keane Lewis-Potter (Dan Crowley, 75), Gavin Whyte (Josh Magennis, 45), Jacob Greaves, Greg Docherty.

Subs not used: George Long, James Scott, Josh Emmanuel, Regan Slater.

Officials:

Referee: Gavin Ward 
Assistants: Mark Dwyer and Bhupinder Gill
Fourth Official: Robert Merchant

Brad Walker was unfairly shown a yellow card in the 30th minute for not leaving the field of play promptly whilst injured.
