Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Fleetwood and Shrewsbury go head to head at Highbury Stadium in what is expected to be a close League One encounter. The Cod Army did not make a flying start to the season, but they have been showing signs of improvement of late. Fleetwood are eager to escape the danger zone, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Shrews. Shrewsbury Town, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Cheltenham Town.
The Shrews are eager to move away from the bottom three as well, and, taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. A man to watch in the away team will be Daniel Udoh, who scored a brace in the triumph over Cheltenham, whilst teenager Tom Bloxham is sidelined through suspension.
Highlighted Player (Callum Camps):
Callum Camps is yet another product of Rochdale football school. Born in Stockport, England on November 30, 1995, Camps came through Rochdale youth team before making his senior debut on April 13, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Port Vale.
He has been playing for the Dale ever since and it has to be noted that his most successful season was the 2016/2017 as he scored eight goals in 44 appearances in the League one for the club. Despite being born in England, Callum Caps is eligible to play for Northern Ireland national team through his grandmother, but he has only one cap with the Northern Ireland U21 team.
He made his debut with the U21 team in a 2-1 loss to Macedonia on October 13, 2015. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and attacking 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.
