Southampton vs. Shrewsbury Match Analysis and Prediction

Southampton continues their search for a FA Cup win this week when they face off third-tier Shrewsbury in the third tie round. The match schedules for Tuesday at St. Mary’s Stadium, with kickoff at 11 pm.

The original fixture was scheduled for Saturday but was later postponed after a coronavirus outbreak at Shrewsbury camp. Whichever side proceeds past this stage will face off against Arsenal four days later.

For a while, Southampton looked close to receive a goodbye to the fourth round as a result of the coronavirus outbreak at Shrewsbury. However, both the Football Association and Premier League worked to find a solution. The match might come unideal for Ralph Hasenhuttl, who had to postpone their match against Leeds United on Wednesday.

The side head into the cup-tie on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday evening. It took strikes for James Maddison and Hashley Barnes to end the Saint’s three-match unbeaten streak without conceding.

The Shrews had to go through rounds to make it this far in the competition. The side had to see off a 2-0 win at Cambridge and 1-0 against Oxford City after extra time. The side’s last competitive match dates back to December 29 with a 1-0 victory against Blackpool. The side is currently unbeaten in five without four of the matches with a 1-0 scoreline.

The likes of Danny Ings and Jannik Vestergaard are likely to get the evening off. We expect massive changes to the starting XI this Tuesday, with Nathan Tella, who made five substitutes this season, likely to feature.

Team manager Cotterill is one of the 20 members of both the playing and coaching staff to have contracted coronavirus. There are several players available after returning to field training earlier this week. Leon Clarke keeps pushing for a spot with Daniel Udoh, likely to get a start.
