Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
A place in the FA Cup round 4 will be at stake when Shrewsbury Town and Bristol City face each other at Montgomery Waters Meadow on Tuesday evening. The Shrews are on a four-game winless run in the League One, with the team sharing the spoils with Lincoln City in their last league match. Sam Ricketts’ troops do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the FA Cup replay, but their performance from the original fixture is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism.
The Robins, on the other hand, did well to beat Wigan Athletic on the road in their last league match, with the team keeping their hopes of booking a place in the play-offs alive. Bristol City have big ambitions for the FA Cup as well, but we are tempted to put our money on draw as the Shrews produced a fine performance in the Montgomery Waters Meadow clash.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Pierre):
Born on February 17, 1993 in Southall, England Aaron Pierre is a professional footballer who plays for Shrewsbury Town in the League One as a defender. Pierre started his youth career at Fulham at the age of 15 and in 2011 he moved to Brentford youth school.
Speaking of his senior career, the 185-cm-tall defender played for the likes of Brentford, Cambridge United, Wycombe Wanderers and Northampton Town before signing a deal with Shrewsbury Town in the summer of 2019. Aaron Pierre signed for the League One side for an undisclosed fee, penning a three-year deal. Despite being born in England, the Shrewsbury Town footballer represents Granada on the international stage.
He received his first call-up for the Grenada national team in September, 2015, but he has yet to find the net with the Spice Boys. The Grenada international’s main position is centre-back, whereas his preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Bristol City):
Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol. Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol City’s bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby.
Cardiff City are regarded as Bristol City’s bitter rivals as well. The Robins play their home games at Ashton Gate, the stadium that was opened in 1887. Bristol City were semi-finalists of the League Cup two times (1970/1971, 1988/1989), with the team making it to the FA Cup final in 1909.
The Robins faced Manchester United in the title game, but they failed to upset the English giants in the Crystal Palace clash. It is well known that Bristol City footballers wear red shirts and blue shorts.
