Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss at Stevenage when they take on Burton in the League One round 3. The Shrews have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team obviously producing much better showings at home than on the travels and they are surely capable of matching Burton at their Croud Meadow. Both Benning and Dunkley are pushing for a start as head coach Matthew Taylor is still trying to find the ideal starting XI.
The Brewers, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Derby County, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the home side. You should know that Shrewsbury emerged triumphant in each of their last three meetings with Burton in the English third tier. Last time out the Shrews hammered Burton 4-0.
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.
