The Grecians were left to rue what could have been in a 2-2 draw with Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, while Shrewsbury claimed a 2-1 victory on Port Vale’s turf.

Thanks to a record of three wins from five away matches since taking charge, Paul Hurst has led Shrewsbury seven points clear of the relegation zone with nine games of regular season remaining, although the 49-year-old admitted that Saturday’s win was far nervier than it should have been.

However, Hurst is yet to oversee a home victory for his new club, who have gone winless in their last six matches at the Croud Meadow, losing five of them since beating Fleetwood Town 3-1 on New Year’s Day.

In addition, the Shrews have scored just two goals across their six winless home matches – failing to net in their last two against Wigan Athletic and Blackpool – and a mere 28 strikes remains the worst attacking record in the 2023-24 League One campaign.

Thankfully, Tuesday’s game sees them face the second-worst offensive side in the division, and Exeter’s 28th and 29th goals of the league season were not enough to propel them to a surprise victory over promotion-chasing Bolton.

Despite dropping two points, head coach Gary Caldwell was still left delighted with a hard-earned draw against the former Premier League and UEFA Cup competitiors, one which just about keep the Grecians abover Shrewsbury in the bottom half of the table.

However, only goal difference is separating the two sides, and even then it is incredibly tight – Exeter’s tally stands at -23 compared to Shrewsbury’s -24 – and Caldwell’s side are now without a victory in five matches, but three of their last four victories have come on the road.

Shrewsbury Town vs. Exeter City Head to head

In the 23 previous meetings between these two teams, Shrewsbury have claimed nine victories while Exeter have won five, and they have drawn in nine. Exeter have scored 26 goals and conceded 33 in the process.

Shrewsbury Town Team News

Left-back George Nurse is still on the long road to recovery from his cruciate ligament injury, while Roland Idowu, Joe Anderson, Nohan Kenneh and Ryan Bowman were not involved either.

Hurst reserved special praise for goalkeeper Marko Marosi after Saturday’s game, and the Slovakian should line up behind an unchanged back four on Tuesday night.

Exeter City Team News

Long-term absentees Gabe Billington (ankle) and Demetri Mitchell (ACL) are not expected to play again this season, and neither Will Aimson nor Ryan Woods were able to finish against Bolton on Saturday.

Cheick Diabate will slot into defence for Aimson if need be, while Reece Cole is eligible to take Woods’ spot in midfield after serving a two-game suspension for picking up 10 yellow cards.
