Match Preview: Shrewsbury Town V Peterborough United

This article is more than 11 months old. Please read this page keeping its age in mind.

Shrewsbury Town face another tough test when they welcome promotion chasing Peterborough United on Tuesday evening.

Peterborough are synonymous as a side which score and concede a lot of goals – demonstrated further by their 4-3 defeat against Blackpool.

Town will head into the contest as outsiders but are beginning to improve their form on the pitch.

Shrewsbury fell to a 1-0 defeat against Wycombe last time out, but did create a catalogue of chances at the weekend.

Sam Ricketts will be without defender Ro Shaun-Williams who is suspended following his dismissal against the Chairboys.

Ethan Ebanks-Landell (hamstring) could return to the matchday squad. Romain Vincelot (hip), Daniel Udoh, Ryan Sears, Ryan Giles, and Lenell John-Lewis (all knee) remain absent.

Goals courtesy of Omar Beckles, Stefan Payne, and Lenell John-Lewis earned Town their last victory at home to Peterborough in April 2018.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson could be without Kyle Barker who has a muscle problem. Otherwise he has a fully fit squad to choose from.

Key duo Ivan Toney and Marcus Maddison are one yellow card away from incurring a suspension. Peterborough occupy 3rd place in League One.
