Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury play host to Wycombe at their Greenhous Meadow in the League One round 10. The Shrews aim to build on a 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon, but they face a difficult task against the Chairboys. Daniel Udoh could be recalled to the starting XI after finding the net against AFC Wimbledon, with Sam Cosgrove or Ryan Bowman making way. Wycombe, on the other hand, are eyeing a place in top six.
The Chairboys aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to MK Dons, and seeing that they are desperate to stay in the playoffs berth, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Anthony Stewart is banned for the match, but there are no fresh injury worries in the away team. In their last meeting at the venue the Shrews recorded a 2-1 win over the Chairboys.
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 (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
