History of the Barnet v Shrewsbury Town fixture

Barnet are ready to welcome Shrewsbury Town to Underhill Stadium on Tuesday evening, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. Though history would suggest this fixture as being a 'banker' draw for the Bees.

The previous match played between the two at Underhill Stadium was more than three years back, in August 2000, with Barnet running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a League Division Three match.
