Sean Rigg hopeful Port Vale can end Shrewsbury Town home run

Port Vale striker Sean Rigg

Striker Sean Rigg believes Port Vale can end Shrewsbury's unbeaten home record in League Two on Saturday.

Vale, who have not lost in three previous visits to the Prostar Stadium, could move into the play-off places if they register a third successive win.

Rigg, 23, told BBC Radio Stoke: "It's always a good game against Shrewsbury.

"There's a lot of pressure on them to keep that record up. There always has to be a time when they get defeated and hopefully we'll go and do that."

Vale can upset Shrewsbury - Rigg

Shrewsbury have collected 33 points from a possible 39 points at home this season - only Plymouth, AFC Wimbledon and Northampton have managed to avoid defeat.

Vale are in positive mood after successive 1-0 victories over Rotherham and Plymouth.

"The spirit in the camp is a lot higher now with a couple of wins under our belt," said Rigg, who won promotion from League Two with Bristol Rovers in 2007.

"The league is a bit up-and-down at the minute. It seems like teams win a few and then lose a few.

"We're not far off a play-off spot so we're going to try and keep creeping up there and hopefully get on a good run.

"It is a really big game for us (against Shrewsbury) and another three points would be lovely."
