Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football match at Greenhous Meadow pits together Shrewsbury Town and Hull City, the two teams with totally different ambitions in the season finale. The Shrews are nine points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they would be happy with one point from the match. Shrewsbury were not in action in midweek, meaning that tired legs are unlikely to prove to be a problem for the home team.
The Tigers, on the other hand, aim to cement top position in the standings. The league leaders are on a five-game winning run in the English third tier, and given their display in a 2-0 win over Oxford United, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. You should know that Hull City are after their third consecutive away win in the League One.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Pierre):
Born on February 17, 1993 in Southall, England Aaron Pierre is a professional footballer who plays for Shrewsbury Town in the League One as a defender. Pierre started his youth career at Fulham at the age of 15 and in 2011 he moved to Brentford youth school.
Speaking of his senior career, the 185-cm-tall defender played for the likes of Brentford, Cambridge United, Wycombe Wanderers and Northampton Town before signing a deal with Shrewsbury Town in the summer of 2019. Aaron Pierre signed for the League One side for an undisclosed fee, penning a three-year deal. Despite being born in England, the Shrewsbury Town footballer represents Granada on the international stage.
He received his first call-up for the Grenada national team in September, 2015, but he has yet to find the net with the Spice Boys. The Grenada international’s main position is centre-back, whereas his preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450.
Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider.
Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
