West Ham vs Shrewsbury: FA Cup TV, live streaming

West Ham United host Shrewsbury Town in an FA Cup third-round replay on Tuesday night, intent on progressing in the competition.

The Hammers were held to a goalless draw in the first meeting at New Meadow, but assistant manager Alan Irvine says the Premier League team will do everything they can to make it into the next round.

However, David Moyes' team are set to be without strikers Javier Hernandez and Andy Carroll for the clash, with the former having missed training on Monday with illness, while the latter is injured again.

The Scot will likely hand Joe Hart a start in goal against their opponents, who saw their 10-match unbeaten run in League One come to an end at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Shrewsbury boss Paul Hurst, meanwhile, expects a much-improved West Ham showing at the London Stadium.

West Ham know they cannot afford to put in the same kind of FA Cup display as they did last time out against Shrewsbury.

Joe Hart admitted that the Hammers were "terrible" against his hometown club and lucky to escape Shropshire with a replay.

Confidence is high at London Stadium after David Moyes' side crushed Huddersfield 4-1 away at the weekend, but the Hammers must be wary of the threat Salop pose in order to progress to the next round.

West Ham are likely to be without forwards Javier Hernandez and Andy Carroll for their FA Cup replay at home to League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Mexican Hernandez was sent home from training on Monday because of illness, while Carroll is once again not fit. Joe Hart is likely to start in goal against his old club.

Shrewsbury's 10-game unbeaten run was ended at Blackburn on Saturday but Paul Hurst has no new injury problems.

The sides drew 0-0 in the first game at the New Meadow, with the winners facing a trip to either Bournemouth or Wigan in round four.

West Ham coach Alan Irvine:

"We certainly were pleased to get out of the first game with a draw because we didn't play well enough, that's for sure. Clearly we want to win the game and progress in the FA Cup, but the priority is clear in that we have to stay in this division.

"We're in a better position than we were but we are nowhere near to where we want to be."

Shrewsbury boss Paul Hurst:

"I think it will certainly be more difficult than the first game.

"Whatever they thought of us going into the first game they have now seen first-hand, so there will be no underestimating us and they will know that they will have to perform better than they did in the first game to progress.

"I'm sure they will have more of the ball than they did in the first game and create more chances, so we need to try and limit it as much as possible, whether it's last-ditch defending, a good goalkeeping performance or a bit of luck along the way.

"But, going the other way, we need to try and create a couple of chances ourselves and make it as difficult as we can."
