            Shrewsbury Town vs Blackpool Preview, Tips & Stats

            Blackpool make the trip to New Meadow to take on Shrewsbury Town this Saturday in League One. Shrewsbury will be looking to put some more room between them and the relegation zone, whereas Blackpool aim to reel in Play-off football.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Shrewsbury have one win, two draws and two losses.

            After a goalless first half, Max Bird scored within ten minutes of the second half to give Derby County the lead. However, Aaron Pierre popped up with a goal in the 87th minute to grab a 1 - 1 draw for Shrewsbury. The next time out for Shrewsbury was against Barnsley, with an own goal from Nicky Cadden giving Shrewsbury the lead in the seventh minute. The Shrews led for the rest of normal time, but a 92nd minute penalty from Herbie Kane forced a 1 - 1 draw.

            Matt Smith scored the only goal of the game in the 57th minute to give Wigan the 1 - 0 win over Shrewsbury, with The Shrews only managing three shots on target. Shrewsbury bounced back against Reading the next time out. Jordan Shipley and Tom Bayliss both scored before the five minute mark, but Sam Smith scored for Reading just four minutes later. Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan equalised for Reading but a goal from Tom Bloxham secured the 3 - 2 win for Shrewsbury.

            The last time out for Shrewsbury was against Lincoln City. Teddy Bishop, Reeco Hackett-Fairchild and Lasse Sorensen all scored to give Lincoln the 3 - 0 win over Shrewsbury.

            Blackpool, on the other hand, currently sit ninth in League One. In 35 games, Blackpool have 15 wins, eight draws and 12 losses which leaves them on 53 points, six points from the Play-offs.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Blackpool have two wins and three losses.

            A brace from Elliot Bonds gave Cheltenham the 2 - 0 win over Blackpool, who only managed one shot on target with 58% of the possession. However, Blackpool bounced back the next time out against Peterborough. Hector Kyprianou gave Peterborough the 1 - 0 lead at halftime, but a penalty from Shayne Lavery and a 91st minute goal from Karamoko Dembele gave Blackpool the 2 - 1 win.

            In the Football League Trophy Semi-final, Blackpool faced Peterborough again. However, this time a goal from Malik Mothersille and a brace from Harrison Burrows gave Peterborough the 3 - 0 win. George Thomason gave Bolton the lead in the ninth minute, but Jake Beesley’s first goal and a goal from Marvin Akpereogene Paul Edem Ekpiteta gave Blackpool the lead at halftime.
