Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Greenhous Meadow will host Wednesday’s League One match between Shrewsbury and Accrington, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Accrington aim to build on back-to-back wins over Cheltenham (3-1) and Shrewsbury (3-0), and they are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach. Ryan Bowman is not getting older, and we predict that he is going to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
Accrington, on the other hand, did well to beat both Bolton and Rotherham in the previous two league fixtures. The Accy Stanley, though, are not regarded as good travelers, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on draw. Colby Bishop should continue to lead the lien for the visitors despite failing to find the net in the Boxing Day defeat.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Pierre):
Born on February 17, 1993 in Southall, England Aaron Pierre is a professional footballer who plays for Shrewsbury Town in the League One as a defender. Pierre started his youth career at Fulham at the age of 15 and in 2011 he moved to Brentford youth school.
Speaking of his senior career, the 185-cm-tall defender played for the likes of Brentford, Cambridge United, Wycombe Wanderers and Northampton Town before signing a deal with Shrewsbury Town in the summer of 2019. Aaron Pierre signed for the League One side for an undisclosed fee, penning a three-year deal. Despite being born in England, the Shrewsbury Town footballer represents Granada on the international stage.
He received his first call-up for the Grenada national team in September, 2015, but he has yet to find the net with the Spice Boys. The Grenada international’s main position is centre-back, whereas his preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Accrington):
Founded back in 1891 and reformed in 1968, Accrington Stanley are an English football club that compete in the League One. The original team competed in the Football League from 1921 to 1962, spending the last four seasons in Lancashire Combination.
The Accy are well known for their red home kit, whilst they wear sky blue shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels. The League One side play their home games at Crown Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 5,450 spectators (3,100 seated). Accrington have been playing at Crown Ground since 1970.
Listed as the all-time favourite player amongst fans, Chris Grimshaw is one of the most famous Accrington Stanley footballers. However, George Stewart is the team’s top scorer, netting 136 goals in total from 1954 to 1958. It has to be noted that the Accy have yet to represent England in European competitions.
