Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town and Lincoln City go head to head at Greenhouse Meadow in what is expected to be an interesting League One clash. Thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Blackpool, the Shrews secured the survival, meaning that they should be with guards down in Tuesday’s clash. Aaron Pierre is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Anyhow, home win should not be considered as Shrewsbury Town head into the match with the lack of motivation.
Lincoln City, on the other hand, aim to cement their spot in top six, and seeing that they want this win more than the Shrews, away win should be considered. Important attacker Tom Hopper, who has overcome his injury, is widely expected to return to the starting XI. In the first half of the season Shrewsbury defeated Lincoln 1-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
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 (Lincoln):
Lincoln City are one of the oldest clubs competing in the League One as they were founded back in 1884. Lincoln City FC were established as an amateur association, but they turned professional in the 1891/1892 season.
Back then they played at John O’Gaunts stadium, but nowadays Sincil Bank is the club’s home ground. Sincil Bank was opened in 1895, holding up to 10,120 people. The club’s main colours are red, white and black, whilst the Imps wear green shirts and white shorts when playing on the road. Lincoln City and Mansfield Town are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals, but the Limps had some sort of local rivalry with Peterborough United, Hull City and York City as well.
Albert Iremonger (42 years and 312 days) is the oldest footballer to have played for the club, whilst Shane Nicholson (16 years and 112 days) is the youngest one. Lincoln City recorded a thrilling 9-1 victory over then local rivals Sleaford in their first game.
