Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury and Fleetwood square off against each other at Greenhouse Meadow in what is expected to be a close League One encounter. The Shrews aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Cambridge United and Cheltenham Town, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Cod Army. Keep in mind that important defender Luke Leahy is banned for the hosts following his sending off in the midweek defeat.
The visitors, on the other hand, head into Sunday’s clash following back-to-back losses to Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley. Since Fleetwood are desperate to get back on course as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Zimbabwe international Admiral Muskwe is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute against the Tykes, while there are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
Highlighted Team (Fleetwood):
Known for their attacking style of play, Fleetwood Town are a professional football club based in Fletwood, Lancashire. The Fishermen play their home matches at Highbury Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 5,327 (2,672 seated), with the team wearing red and white shirts in home matches.
On the other hand, Fleetwood footballers are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels. The original club was founded back in 1908 under the name of Fleetwood FC and 69 years later they were re-established as Fleetwood Town F.C. In 1998 the club was renamed to Fleetwood Wanderers after the second reformation.
Legendary England footballer Joey Barton is considered one of the club’s most notable coaches. Barton, who was known for his incidents on the field, has been in charge since June 2, 2018. Neighbouring club Blackpool are regarded as one of Fleetwood’s main rivals. The Fishermen have built up rivalries with Morecambe and Preston North End as well.
