Vital Posh looks at previous matches between Peterborough United and Shrewsbury Town ahead of the Sky Bet League One match at London Road.
Posh and the Shrews have met each other on 42 occasions in the League with the Shrews edging the wins with 15 compared to 12 for Posh.
The last League meeting between these sides came in the 2007/08 season when Posh did the double over Shrewsbury in League Two.
All the matches have taken place in the bottom two divisions of the Football League with the first League meeting dating back to the 1961/62 season when each side away. They had met once before this first League meeting and that came in 1959/60 when Posh were still a non-League team. Playing at home in the FA Cup First Round, Posh came out 4-3 winners. 16,321 fans watched a brace of goals from Dennis Emery and one goal each for Jimmy Rayner and Ray Smith.
The last 10 League results between these two sides were:

Last Time Out at London Road
The Shrews turned up at London Road on New Years Day 2008 looking to make a good start to the year but left empty handed. They also featured two players who were to join Posh in later years; namely Kelvin Langmead and Dave Hibbert.
It started well enough for them though as the Shrews took the lead when veteran striker Andy Cooke converted Ben Herd's delivery from the right just before the half hour mark.
Posh drew level just 10 minutes into the second half when midfielder Charlie Lee made the most of a great flick from Craig Mackail-Smith to bury the ball into the back of the net.
Two minutes later and Posh were in front. A Jamie Day corner was met by the head of Charlie Lee who headed the ball back across the goal to be met by Craig Morgan who fired in from close range.
Claude Gnakpa replaced Kieran Charnock with 10 minutes remaining while Liam Hatch, who put pen to paper to sign a permanent deal at Posh for £150,000 the following day, came on for Craig Mackail-Smith with seven minutes of the match remaining.
