Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Loftus Road will host Saturday’s football match between AFC Wimbledon and Shrewsbury Town. The Dons aim to climb to the League One playoffs berth, but the game against the Shrews will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. AFC Wimbledon defeated Swindon on the road during the international break, and you should bear in mind that AFC Wimbledon are eyeing their first win of the season.
The Shrews, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous four games in all competitions. The visiting team, though, have yet to record a win in the new League One campaign. Anyhow, a low-scoring affair is on the cards as there have been under 2.5 goals in three of Shrewsbury’s first four league games of the season. Experienced attacker Shaun Whalley is likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Mark Little):
Mark Little is a right back who plays for Bristol City. Little started his youth career at Wolverhampton Wonderers and he made 27 appearances for the first team as well. He made his Wolves debut on 23 August, 2006 in the League Cup clash against Chesterfield.
After spending two years on loan at Northampton Town, Chesterfield and Peterborough United, he signed a permanent deal with Peterborough on 25 May, 2010. The defender scored three goals in 148 appearances for the ABAX Stadium outfit, but in 2014 turned down a new contract offer. Mark Little joined Bristol City on 1 July, 2014 and he has been playing for the Robins ever since.
The English footballer, who was born on 20 August, 1988 made 23 appearances for Bristol City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he scored one goal for the club. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Burton):
Burton Albion are one of the four clubs that secure promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. The Brewers welcome their rivals at Pirelli Stadium, the venue that was opened in 2005. The capacity of the stadium is 6,912, while the seating capacity of the venue is 2,034.
Burton Albion won the FA Trophy in 1987, with the team winning Football League Two in 2015. During the club’s non-League period, the Brewers’ local rivals were Nuneaton Borough, Tamworth, Stafford Rangers and Gresley Rovers, but while they were playing in the Football League the club’s rivals were Crewe, Port Vale, Notts County and Chesterfield.
Derby County are considered Burton Albion’s rivals as well, but the rivalry with the Rams is rather friendly. The colour of Burton Albion’s home kit is black and yellow, while they wear white and grey jerseys on the travels.
