You do have to go back to 1989 for the last meeting between the two sides, but that will give the Shrews something to draw inspiration from in their Capital One Cup tie.

Micky Mellon’s men overcame Championship side Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park in the first round, but have failed to win in League One since their promotion last season with two draws and two defeats from their opening four games.

By contrast, Palace have endured a bright start in Alan Pardew’s first full season in charge at Selhurst.

The 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday was their second in three games after beating Norwich City on the opening day, before narrowly losing out to Arsenal.

They will be without the enigmatic Yannick Bolasie for tonight’s match, though, as he is currently on compassionate leave.
