Notts County and both teams to score in 90 minutes @ 5/2

The hosts have been mostly impressive when playing at home this season. Of the 14 games played at Meadow Lane across all competitions, Notts County have only lost five and Shrewsbury will find them a tough nut to crack on Friday night.

With Macaulay Langstaff, David McGoldrick and Dan Crowley having scored numerous goals between them this season, the Magpies won't be short of attacking options and Shrewsbury will be well aware of the threat they will carry.

The visitors head into the game in decent form having taken four points from their last two fixtures in League One. After beating Port Vale 2-1 at home, they drew 0-0 at Exter City over the weekend.

With a division separating the two teams, the Shrews should be able to cause some problems of their own and we do see them getting on the scoresheet. We just fancy the home advantage here to see Notts County through in 90 minutes.

Macaulay Langstaff to score in 90 minutes @ 5/4

After an incredible 42-goal campaign in the National League last season, Notts County striker Langstaff has taken to the step-up to the Football League like a duck to water.

The forward is the joint-second top scorer in League Two alongside Salford City's Matt Smith with 14 goals so far. Only Swindon Town's Jake Young has scored more with 16. Just like he was in their incredible promotion campaign, Langstaff continues to be the Magpies player that steps up on the big occasion and Shrewsbury defenders will not look forward to coming up against him on Friday.

Not only is he a clinical finisher but he is also able to create chances for his team mates. Langstaff is so clever at getting into dangerous positions to hurt opponents, and we are expecting Shrewsbury to be the latest team for him to net against.
