Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town and Peterborough United, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the remainder of the season, take on each other at Greenhous Meadow in what is expected to be an entertaining encounter. The Shrews aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Sunderland, but they face yet another difficult task against on Matchday 27. In their last home game in the League One Shrewsbury Town recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Blackpool.
Petersborough, on the other hand, are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Championship. The Posh recorded three wins in the previous four league fixtures, and seeing that they have been impressive at the back of late, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Shrewsbury’s previous six league matches.
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 (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
