Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United and Shrewsbury Town face each other at the Kassam Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturday’s program. The Yellows have been scoring goals for fun in the first half of the season, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Shrews on Matchday 20. Given their attacking potential, we are positive that Oxford United are going to find the net in Saturday’s football match.
Shrewsbury Town, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-3 loss to Bristol Rovers, but we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score as the Shrews’ attackers have found their goal-scoring touch of late. When the two teams met in the League One in April, 2019 Oxford United defeated Shrewsbury Town 3-2.
Highlighted Player (Elliott Moore):
Born in Coalville, England on March 16, 1997 Elliott Moore is an English footballer who plays for Oxford United as a centre-back. Moore has one cap with the England U18 team, while making two appearances for the England U20 team.
The 196-cm tall defender is a product of Leicester City football school, joining the club at the age of 6, but he did not enjoy a first-team football with the Foxes. He made his first appearances for Leicester City senior team on July 19, 2017 against WBA at the Asia Trophy. After spending a couple of seasons on loan at OH Leuven, Elliott Moore returned to England in the summer of 2019, signing a contract with League One side Oxford United.
Moore made his League One debut against Sunderland on August 3, 2019. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Stadium of Light in the opening match of the season, with Elliott Moore coming from the bench in the dying minutes of the game.
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.
