Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Northampton Town when they take on Cambridge United on Saturday afternoon. The Shrews have regained a much-need confidence, but their League One status is still in great danger. Barring any fresh injury worries, Paul Hurst is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Cobblers at the weekend.
The Yellows, on the other hand, failed to turn their dominance into goals in a goalless draw with Burton. Cambridge United are undefeated in the previous three league matches and, taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. As for the away team, forward Jack Lankester is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the last league fixture. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
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.
