History of the Notts. County v Shrewsbury Town fixture

Notts. County prepare to entertain Shrewsbury Town at Meadow Lane on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Magpies are clearly on top, having won 10 and lost only 4 of the 19 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Meadow Lane was just last season, in August 2008, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League Two match.
