Shrewsbury Town host Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night in the Sky Bet League One. Kick-off is at 7:45pm.

Salop drew 1-1 with Portsmouth at Montgomery Waters Meadow on Saturday. After a goalless first half, Town broke the deadlock courtesy of Rob Street's well-placed header in the 53rd minute. However, the points were to be shared when Marlon Pack equalised in the 82nd minute for Pompey.

Meanwhile, league leaders Plymouth won 1-0 away at Exeter City. Matt Butcher’s goal in the 70th minute was enough to separate the sides.

There have been 56 matches between Salop and the Pilgrims, with Shrewsbury winning 20, losing 20 and drawing 16. In the reverse fixture, Plymouth were 2-1 winners in October at Home Park.
