Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at County Ground pits together Swindon Town and Shrewsbury Town, the two teams who sit in the danger zone ahead of Matchday 28. Swindon aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Shrewsbury Town. Keep in mind, though, that important defender Dion Conroy misses the game through suspension.
The Shrews, on the other hand, are eager to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Crewe. Shrewsbury Town aim to escape the danger zone as well, but seeing that the triumph over Wigan gave Swindon a confidence boost, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. It has to be noted that Shrewsbury were beaten by Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in their last away game in the League One.

Based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Shrewsbury Town are a professional club that play home games at New Meadow stadium, the venue which was opened in 2007 and has the capacity of 10,361. Shrewsbury Town were founded back in 1886, with some reports indicating the club was established at the Lion Hotel.

Mickey Brown holds the club record for most appearances as he played 190 games for the club, scoring 9 goals in the league. Both Wolverhampton and Walsall are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals, but there have always been fireworks in matches between Shrewsbury Town and Hereford United as well.
The two teams face each other in the “A49 derby” and it has to be noted that the Blues have built rivalries with Chester City and Wrexham as well.
