A narrow 2-1 away win at Scunthorpe pushed Shrewsbury to second in the league standings. They could dismantle Blackburn from the top with a win on Tuesday who are sitting at a 2-point distance.

The Shrews do have momentum on their side as the win on Saturday is their third on the bounce. Moreover, they are on an emphatic away run with all of their last 5 outings resulting in wins.

On the other hand, Northampton are coming on the back of a heavy 0-3 defeat at home to Rotherham. The result stretch their win-less run to five games and moved down to relegation zone. Yet, a win could take them to safety depending on results elsewhere.

Yet, Northampton’s head-coach Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will be a concerned man as his team failed to lift the performance in recent home fixtures. They are without a win in four home games, finding the back of the net just once in the process.
