Shrewsbury Town v Blackpool League One injury news as four out and five doubts

Latest injury news ahead of Shrewsbury Town versus Blackpool in the EFL League One including updates on Aaron Pierre and Jordan Rhodes.

Blackpool hope to get their play-off bid back on track as they travel to the New Meadow to face Shrewsbury Town on Saturday, March 2.

The Seasiders suffered a midweek defeat to Leyton Orient which saw them drop to ninth and now they are six points off of the play-offs. Stevenage have a game in hand and Peterborough United have two so Blackpool will have to get a winning run together again and hope from a slip-up from those above them.

Shrewsbury were also in action in midweek and lost 3-0 to Lincoln City at Sincil Bank. The defeat has the Shrews in 18th, and they are currently five points above the drop zone but the teams below them such as Cheltenham Town and Port Vale do possess games in hand.

Blackpool ran out convincing winners against Shrewsbury in the reverse fixture between the two back in November, claiming a 4-0 victory. Jake Beesley scored a brace and was joined by Jordan Rhodes and Kyle Joseph in the scoring.

The record against Shrewsbury isn't the greatest and that win in November was their first in 14 matches. Blackpool have not won an away match at Shrewsbury Town since a New Year's Day win in 1997, winning 3-1 back in the old Division Two days.

Neil Critchley and Paul Hurst have some decisions to make regarding injuries. Some players missed out from playing in their midweek matches but could play a part at the weekend as they try to recover from their respective issues. Here's the latest injury and team news ahead of kick-off at the Croud Meadow.
