Shrewsbury take insipid West Ham to replay on Joe Hart’s return

West Ham United will not relish a replay against Shrewsbury Town, and not only because of the imposition on their schedule. The League One team proved pesky opponents for their Premier League visitors, who never looked superior to Paul Hurst’s team.Joe Hart had hoped to make a triumphant return to the town of his birth but a clean sheet was the extent of his success. It was an uncomfortable outing all-round for David Moyes’ men. Hart evidently forgot to pack appropriate headwear so shortly after kick-off, in order to shield his eyes from the low-hanging sun, he had to don a cap thrown to him by one of the travelling fans. Hart is perhaps Shrewsbury’s most famous son after Charles Darwin and the theory soon evolved that if this clash was to be about the survival of the fittest, then the underdogs would prevail.
