Shrewsbury Primed To Cause An FA Cup Upset Against West Ham
The BBC television cameras are at Montgomery Waters Meadow on Sunday afternoon as the schedulers anticipate a potential FA Cup third round upset when high-flying League One side Shrewsbury take on West Ham...
- Shrewsbury have only lost once at home in the league this season - Won Ten, Drawn One
- The Shrews have conceded just four goals in 12 home league games
- West Ham have failed to win 12 of their 15 away games in all competitions - Won Three, Drawn Five, Lost Seven

This will be the first meeting between the two teams since they clashed in the old Division Two back in 1981 and Paul Hurst's men will be confident of causing an upset as they are riding high in second place in the League One table this season.
The Shrews have been superb defensively, conceding only 15 goals in 25 league games and keeping four clean sheets in their last five, and they have been rock solid at home, where they have won ten of their twelve outings.
The hosts have only conceded four goals on home soil and the bookmakers are anticipating a potential 'cupset' as Shrewsbury are 3/1 in the match betting (Bet Victor).
Ingredients For An Upset
All of the ingredients for an upset are there as this will be West Ham's third game in five days after Thursday night's 1-1 draw at Tottenham lifted them to 15th place in the Premier League table and it is difficult to back the visitors at 9/10 (BetVictor.com).
Indeed, David Moyes, who actually played for Shrewsbury from 1987 to 1990, has admitted that he will rotate his team this weekend as Saturday's league clash with Huddersfield takes priority.
The Hammers have only won three times on the road in all competitions and we really fancy Shrewsbury to get something out of this game, with a home win with 'draw no bet' available at a stand-out 2/1 (William Hill).
The Shrews are no strangers to beating higher ranked opposition as they knocked Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday out of the FA Cup two years ago and we are anticipating more of the same on Sunday.
