New Meadow, Monday, 7.45pm, live on Sky Sports 1

TV cameras make a rare visit to Shrewsbury on Monday night and could have picked an action-packed match.

It's a clash between fourth v fifth in League Two and features two clubs with serious promotion ambitions.

Shrewsbury remain unbeaten at home while there is a perception Crawley are the better of the two sides following their FA Cup heroics.

What worries me about Crawley is the fact they lost top scorers Matt Tubbs and Tyrone Barnett in the transfer window. Theyhad grabbed 31 goals between them this season and leading marksman at the club now is defender Dean Howell with just three.

Shrewsbury have conceded just seven goals at home in 14 games while Crawley have only won one of their last six in League Two.

It was 2-1 to Crawley in the first meeting of the sides earlier this season and both sides have scored in five of their last six league games.

Shrewsbury are a biggest 7-4 with BetVictor while Crawley are 9-5 at the likes of Ladbrokes. The draw pays a best 12-5 at BetVictor but I'm backing the side that's won 11 and drawn three at home and beaten all of the top six in their meetings this season.

Arsenal loanee Sanchez Watt and experienced Billy Clarke will form Crawley's frontline but won't pose the sort of threat that came from Tubbs and Barnett.

Both sides could score at 4-5 with Ladbrokes while no is 11-10 at Ladbrokes. However, only one of Shrewsbury's last eight at home have been over 2.5 goals.

With so much at stake it could be a cagey start so look at the first goal coming after 31 minutes (6-5,William Hill).

    Couple of cracking recommendations there! Well Done! Shrewsbury’s home form is something out of this world at the moment and Crawley without a win on the road in their last 6… 7-4 @ home was just too good value to turn down. Well Done again! Keep up the good work.

      Robert, the two tips came up on the Shrewsbury game but I think I got lucky. From what I saw of the match Crawley looked the better side but two mistakes cost them. I think it was only Shrewsbury’s belief in themselves at home that got them over the line.
