Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wycombe Wanderers and Shrewsbury Town face each other at Adams Park in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Chairboys, who sit in the second position in the standings ahead of Matchday 17, aim to extend their unbeaten run in the league to eight games, but the Shrews should not be written off just yet.
The visitors did remarkably well to record a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sunderland in their last league fixture, with the team climbing to the 12th position in the table. Since Shrewsbury have been impressive at the back of late as well, a low-scoring game is on the horizon at Adams Park, and we believe that you can find value in under 2.5 goals bet. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in three of their last five meetings in all competitions.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Allsop):
Born in Birmingham, England on June 17, 1992, Ryan Allsop is a professional footballer who started his youth career at West Bromwich Albion. Speaking of his senior career, the 191-cm tall goalkeeper played for the likes of Hottur, Leyton Orient, Bournemouth, Coventry City, Portsmouth, Blackpool and Lincoln City before signing a permanent deal with Wycombe Wanderers.
The goalkeeper, who spent the 2015/2016 season on loan at Wycombe, returned to the club after he was released by the Cherries. Ryan Allsop has 5 caps with the England U17 team, but he has yet to make his debut with the senior team.
His preferred foot is right and he has a contract with Wycombe which should expire on June 30, 2021. The English shot-stopper did well to keep 10 clean sheets in 38 appearances for the Wanderers in the 2018/2019 League One season.
Highlighted Team (Shrewsbury):
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.
The Blues wear blue shirts with yellow stripe and blue shorts when playing at home, whilst the colour of their away kit is purple. 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.
