Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Charlton Athletic will look to build on a 2-0 win over Cambridge United when they take on Shrewsbury Town in the League One round 45. The Red Robins sit in the middle of the table with little to play for in the season finale, but they obviously want to finish the process in great manner. Ryan Inniss is back from suspension, while Sam Lavelle continues to miss out with injury. The Shrews, on the other hand, failed to win the previous four league fixtures.
Shrewsbury Town are low on spirits ahead of the penultimate game of the season, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. Both Ethan Ebanks-Landell and David Davis remain in the recovery room, but they should be the only absentees in the away team. In the first half of the season the Shrews defeated the capital club, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Jake Forster-Caskey ):
Born in Southend-on-Sea, England on April 25, 1994 Jake Forster-Caskey is a midfielder who plays for Charlton Athletic in the League One. Forster-Caskey started his both youth and senior careers at Brighton & Hove Albion and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 67 league appearances for the Seagulls first team.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons and Rotherham United, the English footballer signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Charlton Athletic in the winter of 2017. Jake quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the capital club, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
However, he was out of contention for most of the 2018/2019 season with a serious knee injury. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and left midfielder 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.
