Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Peterborough will be aiming to regain their spot in top two when they welcome Shrewsbury at their Weston Homes Stadium on Matchday 10. The Posh have been in a splendid form of late, and even though they dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Burton, bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s football game. Despite failing to convert a penalty kick in the midweek clash, Clarke-Harris is widely expected to keep his place up front, alongside Dembele.
The Shrews, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their previous three league fixtures. The visitors are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Cambridgeshire, and they are unlikely to spoil Peterborough’s party at Weston Homes Stadium. In their last meeting in the League One the Shrews emerged triumphant, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Mark Beevers):
Born in Barnsley, England on November 21, 1989, Mark Beevers is a 193-cm tall defender who plays for Peterborough United. The product of Sheffield Wednesday football school made 140 appearances in the league for the Owls before signing a permanent deal with fellow Championship club Millwall.
Mark Beevers scored 7 goals in 117 appearances for the Lions, playing for the club until the 2016 transfer window. The English defender then moved to Bolton where he scored 11 goals in 121 appearances in the league.
In May 2019 Mark Beevers signed a three-year deal with Peterborough United. He made his League One debut with the Posh in a 3-1 loss to Fleetwood Town on August 3, 2019. His main position is centre-back, but he is used as a left-back as well. His preferred foot is left and he has a contract with Peterborough United which should expire on June 30, 2022.
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.
