Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town and Fleetwood Town face each other at Montgomery Waters Meadow in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturday’s program. The Shrews aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth in the League One standings and the fact that they recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Southend United in their last home game is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the clash.
Shrewsbury Town have yet to suffer a loss on home soil in the 2019/2020 season and that is the main reason why we predict they are going to grab something from Saturday’s football match. The Fishermen, on the other hand, have been impressive in front of goal of late. Following a 3-3 draw with Southend United, Fleetwood defeated Rochdale 2-1 in their last league fixture and they are definitely capable of matching the Shrews at Montgomery Waters Meadow.
