Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Pirelli Stadium will host Tuesday’s postponed fixture between Burton Albion and Shrewsbury Town. The Brewers aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to MK Dons, and a win over the Shrews will see them escape the danger zone. Josh Parker is on international duty with Antigua and Barbuda, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team. Shrewsbury Town, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures.
The Shrews boss Steve Cotterill should field the same starting XI that shared the spoils with Hull City, with Udoh and Whalley up front. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Pirelli Stadium, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of the previous three meetings between the two teams.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Edwards):
Despite being born in Singapore on November 17, 1993, Ryan Edwards is eligible to represent Australia in international matches. The 175-cm-tall midfielder has 18 caps with Australia U-23 and it has to be noted that he played for the Socceroos at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Speaking of his club career, Edwards is a product of AIS, the high performance sports training institution from Australia, but in 2011 he was spotted by Reading scouts.
Ryan Edwards played for the Royals at senior level, making seven appearances for the club in the league. The Australian international whore Perth Glory (loan), St. Mirren (loan), Partick Thistle and Heart of Midlothian shirts as well before signing a deal with Burton Albion in 2019.
He made his debut with the Brewers in the League One on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is capable of producing fine performances at both central and right midfield as well.
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.
