The hosts are going to be without attacker Shayne Lavery for the visit of Shrewsbury this weekend, but boss Neil Critchley has confirmed that Kyle Joseph is in contention.

Shrewsbury have no fresh injury concerns heading into Saturday's clash in Lancashire.

 Over 1.5 Shrewsbury goals @ 10/3

Blackpool will fancy themselves for the victory on home soil but Shrewsbury can certainly create a few problems for them to deal with this weekend. The Salopians have scored nine goals in their last four outings across all competitions, so they will be bringing a lot of confidence in attack to Bloomfield Road.

There have been a couple of occasions this term where Blackpool have been frail on their own turf, including the 4-2 defeat to Peterborough United as well as the 3-1 loss to Derby County. Shrewsbury will be sensing an opportunity this weekend.

Both teams to score @ 10/11

While we feel that the visitors have what it takes to score a few goals here, Blackpool certainly have their own quality in front of goal and this could set up an interesting battle in the north west.

The Tangerines have veteran striker Jordan Rhodes in attack, who already has nine goals in 13 League One appearances this season. He could have a great say in the outcome of this match and the visitors will need to keep a close eye on him.
