Shrewsbury Town travel to Portman Road this Saturday to take on Ipswich in the Sky Bet League One. Kick-off is at 3pm.
Salop come into the game off the back of a 3-1 win at home to Morecambe. A Luke Leahy penalty followed by a goal from Rob Street put Cotterill’s side two up in the first 45 minutes. Dan Crowley did pull one back for Morecambe in first-half stoppage time however. A third goal courtesy of Chey Dunkley in the 84th minute wrapped up the game for Salop.
Ipswich were also winners in their fixture, beating Bolton Wanderers 2-0 away from home. George Hirst scored the first just before the end of the first-half, followed by one from Cameron Burgess in the second.
Shrewsbury and Ipswich have met 30 times before, with Salop winning three of those, drawing 10 and losing 17. In the reverse fixture in August, Ipswich won the game 3-0.
