Match Preview: Shrewsbury Town v Bristol Rovers

17 October 2017

Take a look at Tuesday's opponents, Shrewsbury Town.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's side head into Tuesday's encounter on the back of a narrow defeat to Oxford United at the Mem. Rovers' last fixture away was the 6-0 victory over Northampton Town.

Marcus Stewart's View

Opposition: Shrewsbury Town among the front-runners to set the early pace in Sky Bet League One this season and are unbeaten so far this season in the league. In their past two games, Paul Hurst's side have drawn with both Plymouth and Walsall, but are still joint leaders of the division, sharing the top spot with Wigan Athletic.

Dangerman - Stefan Payne

Shrewsbury Town pulled off a major coup when they signed Payne [pictured above] from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee in August 2017. 

Payne had previously enjoyed a loan-spell with Shrewsbury during the second half of the 2016/17 season, scoring two crucial goals as Town secured their League One status. 

A regular scorer in non-league, Payne’s career really took off when he moved to Dover Athletic, where he scored 43 goals in 83 games. 

So far this season Payne has hit the back of the net seven times in all competitions and is averaging just over a goal every other game for the Shrews.

Last Time Out: A brace from Billy Bodin helped Rovers to victory when Shrewsbury visited the Mem back in April.
