Shrewsbury make the trip to The Valley this Saturday to take on Charlton Athletic in the Sky Bet League One. Kick-off is at 3pm.

Salop were beaten 2-0 in their last outing, with a goal in each half sealing victory for Ipswich at Portman Road.

Charlton were held to a 1-1 draw against Wycombe Wanderers in their last match. The Addicks had taken the lead through Miles Leaburn in the first half, but the points would be shared when Chris Forino equalised late in the game for Wycombe.

Shrewsbury and Charlton have faced each other 30 times before, with Salop winning 11 of those, losing 10 and drawing nine. In the reverse fixture, the Addicks claimed all three points with a 1-0 win at Montgomery Waters Meadow in October last year.
