Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Greenhous Meadow will host Monday’s football game between Shrewsbury Town and Doncaster Rovers, the two bottom-table sides. The Shrews aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, but seeing that they are ten points clear of bottom four, the hosts should be happy with one point from the midweek fixture. Ethan Ebanks-Landell and David Davis should be the only absentees in the home team.
The Donny, on the other hand, are desperate to keep their survival hopes alive. Since the visitors want this win more than the hosts, away triumph should be considered. Keep in mind, though, that all Close, John, Okenabirhie, Anderson, Hiwula-Mayifuila, and Jon Taylor should miss out with injuries for the visiting side. In the first half of the season Doncaster defeated Shrewsbury thanks to Joseph Olowu’s goal, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on the away team.
