Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town and Ipswich Town go head to head at Greenhous Meadow in what is expected to be a close League One game. The Shrews are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence following the midweek triumph over Sunderland. Boss Steve Cotterill has no fresh injury worries, and he is likely to field the best possible side against Ipswich Town.
The Tractor Boys, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Peterborough United. Ipswich Town continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. Even though both Kayden Jackson and Teddy Bishop return from suspension, we are tempted to put our money on the in-form hosts. James Wilson is rated doubtful for the match.
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 (Ipswich):
Ipswich Town are an English football club that was formed in 1878. Portman Road has been the home ground of Ipswich Town since 1894 and the capacity of the venue, which was expanded in 2002, is 30,311. The Tractor Boys compete in the Championship, but they used to play in the English Premier League in the past as well. Ipswich Town last appeared in the elite division in the 2001/2002 season.
Ipswich won the FA Cup in 1978, with the team beating Arsenal (1-0) in the title game. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1981 when they outplayed AZ Alkmaar in the UEFA Cup final. It has to be noted that the Tractor Boys have yet to suffer a loss at home ground in the European competitions.
Norwich City are regarded as Ipswich Town’s bitterest rivals and it is well known that the two sides take on each other in the East Anglian derby.
