Stoke City vs Shrewsbury Town Match Preview
Nathan Jones began the FA Cup third round managing one club and will finish it trying to get another into the last 32, namely Stoke City as they target a home tie against Wolves.
From a public perspective, Jones went from being a perfectly settled Luton Town boss to Stoke’s new manager in little more than 24 hours. No wrangles, no acrimony, at least on the face of it – the move was done extremely swiftly and seemingly with the minimum of fuss.
The 45-year-old Welshman could have been presiding over Luton’s replay against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday but instead will be in the Potteries trying to get his new club past Shrewsbury Town, with the original game having ended 1-1.
Ollie Norburn’s penalty just before half-time put the Shrews ahead and Stoke’s future in the competition looked perilous until Peter Crouch popped up with an equaliser, which was not enough to keep Gary Rowett in the manager’s job – he was gone by the Monday morning.
Stoke will probably be hosting what is a guaranteed West Midlands derby in the fourth round, but it may not be easy against a Shrewsbury side who have not been scoring or conceding many goals of late and so the ‘unders’ looks the best bet here.
