Match Preview | Derby County

3 March 2023

Shrewsbury Town travel to Pride Park Stadium this Saturday to take on Derby County in the Sky Bet League One. Kick-off is at 3pm.

Salop clinched a 2-0 win at home last Saturday, with an own goal from Jordan Willis and Rekeil Pyke’s finish securing three points against Wycombe Wanderers.

Derby’s last outing ended in a 2-0 win, with the Rams beating Cheltenham Town at home on Tuesday night. David McGoldrick scored the opener two minutes before half-time and Lewis Dobbin added a second after the break.

Their Saturday fixture away at Barnsley finished in a 4-1 defeat. Paul Warne’s side went two goals down before McGoldrick’s reply made it 2-1. However, in first-half stoppage time, Barnsley grabbed a third before going on to grab the final goal late on.

Shrewsbury and Derby have faced each other 15 times before, with each side winning five of those and the other five ending in a draw. Back in August this season, the match ended in a goalless draw at Montgomery Waters Meadow
