Recent respective form guides

Barnet need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Bees have scored 5, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Shrewsbury Tn.'s away form is none too clever either, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.

Barnet are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 21 points from 26 matches. Shrewsbury Tn.'s total of 42 points from their 26 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League Two.
