Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wham Stadium will host midweek fixture between Accrington Stanley and Shrewsbury Town. Following a 2-0 loss to Lincoln City, Accrington Stanley played out a 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon at the Cherry Red Records Stadium at the weekend. The Accy are eyeing their first win of the season and we are positive that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Tuesday’s football match.
Key attacker Colby Bishop has already found his goal-scoring touch and all eyes will be on the 24-year-old when Accrington take on Shrewsbury on Matchday 4. The Shrews kicked off the new season with a splendid 1-0 win over promotion-chasing Portsmouth, but they failed to find the net in the following two league matches against MK Dons (0-1) and Rochdale (0-0). Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Wham Stadium and we believe that the two teams are going to share the spoils this time out.
Highlighted Player (Billy Kee):
Born in Loughborough, England on December 1, 1990, Billy Kee is a professional footballer who plays for Accrington Stanley as a striker. However, despite being born in England, the 175-cm-tall attacker represents Northern Ireland on the international stage. Billy Kee was called up to the senior Northern Ireland squad in September, 2009 for a World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia, but he has yet to make his debut for the national team.
The Accrington Stanley man scored 13 goals for the Accy in the 2018/2019 League One campaign, but that did not help the team secure promotion to the Championship as they finished the season in the 14th place in the standings.
Billy Kee started his youth career at Leicester City academy, while playing for the likes of Torquay United, Burton Albion, Scunthorpe United and Mansfield Town at senior level. His contract with Accrington Stanley should expire on June, 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Shrewsbury):
Based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Shrewsbury Town are a professional club that play home games at New Meadow stadium, the venue which was opened in 2007 and has the capacity of 10,361. Shrewsbury Town were founded back in 1886, with some reports indicating the club was established at the Lion Hotel.
The Blues wear blue shirts with yellow stripe and blue shorts when playing at home, whilst the colour of their away kit is purple. Mickey Brown holds the club record for most appearances as he played 190 games for the club, scoring 9 goals in the league. Both Wolverhampton and Walsall are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals, but there have always been fireworks in matches between Shrewsbury Town and Hereford United as well.
The two teams face each other in the “A49 derby” and it has to be noted that the Blues have built rivalries with Chester City and Wrexham as well.
