Shrewsbury Town vs Bristol City Match Preview

Incentive could hardly be greater for these Football League clubs in this FA Cup third-round replay – because a home tie against Liverpool live on BBC One is the reward on offer.

It’s a terrific prize and both teams should be really up for it at the New Meadow, surely even more so than in the original game when Famara Diedhiou’s opening goal for Bristol City was cancelled out by Sean Goss’ equaliser.

Welcoming the European and world club champions and comfortably the best team in England this season will be a real money-spinner for whoever advances – and Bristol City in particular may fancy their chances of an upset considering they knocked Manchester United out of the League Cup two seasons ago.

The Robins will have been disappointed not to have got the job done at the first time of asking here but then their form has not been the best over the last month or so, although they did enjoy a confidence-boosting 2-0 win at Wigan in the Championship at the weekend.

Shrewsbury, as has been the case for much of Sam Ricketts’ reign as their manager, have been difficult to beat for most of this season but are still drawing too frequently to launch a serious challenge to reach the League One play-offs.

Home advantage for the Shrews means this could be another tight contest and extra time and even penalties could be required, although Bristol City’s greater quality means they remain the likelier team to be facing Liverpool in the next round.
