Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After suffering back-to-back defeats to the likes of Accrington Stanley and Portsmouth in the previous two league fixtures, Shrewsbury Town will be looking to get back on course in the League One when they welcome Doncaster Rovers at their Montgomery Waters Meadow on Matchday 35. The Shrews have been slipping down the standings week by week, but their League One status is not yet in great danger.
The Donny, on the other hand, are eyeing a place in the play-offs. Darren Moore’s men have been having their ups and downs of late, but they are surely capable of making life difficult for the out-of-sorts Shrews at Montgomery Waters Meadow. However, since January signing Fejiri Okenabirhie misses the match against his former club through suspension, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw in this one.
Highlighted Player (Max O\'Leary):
Born in Bath, England on October 10, 1996, Max O’Leary is an English goalkeeper who plays for Shrewsbury Town on loan from Bristol City. The Shrews shoot-stopper is a product of Bristol City football academy, but he played for the likes of Kidderminster Harriers, Bath City and Solihol Moors on loan before he signed a loan deal with the Blues.
Max O’Leary made his debut with Shrewsbury Town in the League One on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 win over Portsmouth at Montgomery Waters Meadow. O’Leary impressed on his debut, keeping a clean sheet in his first ever game in the English third tier.
Max O’Leary’s stronger foot is right and his loan deal with the Shrews expires on May 31, 2020. His most successful season was the 2017/2018 campaign as he managed to keep 10 clean sheets in 23 appearances in the National League.
Highlighted Team (Doncaster):
Based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Doncaster Rovers are an English football club that compete in the League One. Keepmoat Stadium is the club’s home ground. The venue was opened on August 3, 2007 and it can hold up to 15,231 spectators.
Doncaster Rovers footballers wear white shirts with red stripes and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas the club’s away colours are dark blue and red. Speaking of the Rovers’ history, the club was established back in 1879 by Alber Jenkins, who worked as a fitter at Doncaster’s Great Northern Railway.
Doncaster Rovers shared the spoils with Rawmarsh in their first ever game. The likes of Rotherham United, Barnsley, Grimsby Town and Scuntorpe United are considered the club’s main rivals. Over the years Doncaster fans have developed a rivalry with Plymout Argule as there have been fireworks in their games. Donny Dog, that wears a red and white jersey, is the club’s mascot.
