Shrewsbury Town host Morecambe this Saturday in the Sky Bet League One. Kick-off is at 3pm.

Town suffered a late defeat on the road against Peterborough United on Tuesday night. Jonson Clarke-Harris opened the scoring for the hosts before Tom Flanagan equalised in the first half for Salop. Frankie Kent then netted in the 87th minute to give his side all three points.

Morecambe drew 1-1 in their fixture away at Cambridge United. Jack Lankester put the home side ahead 14 minutes into the first half. However, Morecambe would go in level at the break courtesy of a Cole Stockton equaliser in stoppage time.

The Shrimps also drew their Saturday fixture, with their game at home to Bolton Wanderers ending goalless.
