Our prediction for this League 1 match:
The Croud Meadow will host Tuesday’s football game between Shrewsbury Town and Bolton, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Shrews aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Barnsley and Wigan, but they face yet another tough task against the Trotters. Jamaica defender Chey Dunkley is banned for the match, with Nohan Kenneh likely to sneak into the starting XI.
Bolton, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win and given Shrewsbury’s shaky defence, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the postponed fixture. Barring any fresh injury worries, Ian Evatt is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Charlton Athletic in their last league match. In their last encounter in the English third tier Bolton defeated Shrewsbury 1-0 thanks to Josh Sheehan’s goal.
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.
