Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town and AFC Wimbledon go head to head at Greenhous Meadow in the League One round 9. The Shrews are desperate to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against AFC Wimbledon. Despite failing to find the net in the draw with Sheffield Wednesday, Sam Cosgrove should continue to lead the line for the hosts. The Dons, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Plymouth.
AFC Wimbledon are eager to regain their spot in top six, and seeing that they are likely to go for a win as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last meeting in the League One the two teams played out a 1-1 draw. AFC Wimbledon boss Mark Robinson is likely to field the best possible side against Shrewsbury after resting several first-team regulars in the EFL Cup defeat to Arsenal, while Kalambayi, Madelin, and Osew remain in the recovery room.
