Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After facing Shrewsbury Town at Anfield in the FA Cup round 4 replay, Shrewsbury Town will be looking to return to winning ways in the League One when they take on Milton Keynes Dons at their Montgomery Waters Meadow. Tired legs are likely to prove to be a big problem for the host in Saturday’s football match, but they are surely capable of matching the 19th-placed side in front of home fans.
The Dons continue with their habit of performing well at home, while struggling on the travels. Milton Keynes Dons did well to record back-to-back wins over Rochdale and Wycombe Wanderers on home soil, but you should bear in mind that they are on a ten-game winless run on the road. Since this could be the last chance for the Shrews to catch the train for promotion, home win should be considered.
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 (MK Dons):
Based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes Dons are a League One club that welcome their rivals at Stadium MK. The venue was opened in 2007 and can hold up to 30,500 spectators. Milton Keynes Dons play their home games in white shirts and white shorts, whilst their away kit is red.

Dele Alli, who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur, is the most famous footballer to have played for the Milton Keynes Dons, netting 18 goals in 62 appearances for the club in the league.
