Shrewsbury Town may be two divisions below West Ham but it was they who were the better side in the original match and they will be confident of giving a good account of themselves when they once again face the Hammers in Tuesday evening's FA Cup third-round replay at the London Stadium.

Hammers boss David Moyes had plenty of injury absentees in the original clash at the New Meadow although he did field a team which between them had plenty of experience. Nevertheless numerous chances were wasted and the Hammers really didn't seem all that interested. Indeed they just seemed to go through the motions and it was a wonder that they managed to get themselves a replay at all.

Shrewsbury Town would have been worthy winners had they found a way past the Hammers in their last meeting, however they face a tough challenge on Tuesday when they face them for a second time although we wouldn't be surprised were they to manage a Premier League scalp on their travels.

The Shrews surprised many with their excellent third-round performance, however they have been struggling on the goal-scoring front with their meeting with Blackpool in the Checkatrade Trophy on Wednesday being their third goal-less draw (after normal time) in five outings. Nevertheless Shrewsbury sit comfortably in second place in League One with five points separating them from third-placed Blackburn Rovers (who they face on Saturday) and should they put in a similar performance to that which saw them hold the Hammers, we wouldn't be shocked were they to run out winners on Tuesday evening. Either way, there is certainly plenty of value in having a punt in them at odds of 7/1 with Betfair Free Bets
