Shrewsbury Town's season thus far has been pretty amazing by their own standards and they will look to add a Premier League scalp to their excellent run in an FA Cup third-round clash which has all the makings of a potential upset.

The Shropshire side finished dangerously close to the relegation zone in each of their last two league campaigns, however they now sit in the giddy heights of second in League Two with five points separating them from third-placed Blackburn Rovers and there is no evidence to suggest that their momentum is going to slow down anytime soon.

Much of the credit for the Shrews' improvement can be laid squarely at the feet of manager Paul Hurst, the former Rotherham United player making an immediate impact upon his appointment with the club and with six wins and two draws in their last eight outings, Shrewsbury will be in pretty high spirits heading into this weekend's FA Cup third-round clash with the Hammers.

The Shrews have won thirteen of their sixteen home matches this season, however they will be up against it when they host Premier League side West Ham United on Sunday afternoon. The Hammers have been involved in a pretty hectic festive schedule and they impressed in their 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium last time out, therefore they will be wary of slipping up in what is a potential 'banana skin' of an encounter.

Indeed this match is perhaps one to stay well clear of in the outright winner market, however with Shrewsbury managing plenty of clean sheets on home turf this season, we'll be going for 'Both Teams to Score - No' at odds of Evens with BetVictor Free Bets.
