Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Home Park will host Saturday’s football game between Plymouth and Shrewsbury Town. The Pilgrims have been impressive in front of goal at the start of the season, with the team netting 12 goals in total in the last five games in all competitions. Seeing that Plymouth looked sharp in front of goal in the 4-4 draw with AFC Wimbledon at the weekend, we are positive that they are going to find the net against Shrewsbury Town.
The Shrews, on the other hand, are eyeing their first win of the season. Considering that they were impressive in front of goal in the EFL Cup loss to Middlesbrough (3-4), both teams to score betting option should be considered. Defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell, who picked up a knock in a 2-1 loss to Northampton, is unlikely to feature against Plymouth, but there are no suspended players in the away team. Plymouth boss Ryan Lowe is unlikely to make chances to the team that shared the spoils with AFC Wimbledon.
Highlighted Player (Antoni Sarcevic):
Antoni Sarcevic is a professional footballer who plays for Plymouth Argyle in the League Two. Born in Manchester, England on March 13, 1992, Sarcevic wears the number 7 shirt with the Pilgrims, and his preferred foot is right. The 185-cm tall footballer started his youth career at Manchester City, but he did not see any game action with the Citizens at senior level.
Antoni Sarcevic played for the likes of Woodley Sports, Crewe Alexandra, Chester, Fleetwood Town, and Shrewsbury Town before joining Plymouth Argyle . He made his debut with the Pilgrims on January 31, 2017, in a 2-1 defeat to Yeovil Town, while scoring his first goal for the club in a 1-0 victory over Cambridge United on February 4, 2017.
Antoni Sarcevic’s primary position is central midfield, but he is capable of performing well as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. Sarcevic has dual citizenship as his father is of Serbian descent.
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.
