FLEETWOOD TOWN v SHREWSBURY – ENGLAND LEAGUE ONE
February 7 2016, Highbury Stadium, 15:00 GMT+0
Today’s hosts are coming from a loss against Barnsley in Johnstone’s Paint Trophy semi-finals.
Looking at home matches, Fleetwood is playing decent soccer, with a record of 7-1-2 in the last 10 matches and give a hard time to anyone who visit Highbury Stadium.
As for missing players, Devante Cole is going to join his team today, after missing last cup match. Also Jimmy Ryan, Antoni Sarcevic and a new singing Alex Kiwomya are all believed to step on the pitch today.
Today’s visitors, Shrewsbury are coming from a loss against Southend, who had to play with only 10 men.That is a terrible result for Shrewsbury and it shows it’s inconsistency. In this match Shrewsbury will have to play without a key defender Jermaine Grandison, as for midfielder Abu Ogogo, he is waiting for his chance to step up on the pitch after a hamstring injury.
These two teams are separated by just 1 point in the league, and that 1 point is a difference from being in a “safe zone” or in a relegation zone. Currently Fleetwood town is in relegation zone, but it’s too early to worry about it.
Being that Fleetwood is really good when playing at home and with a new loanee from Chelsea Alex Kiwomya we can expect them to defeat the inconsistent away team Shrewsbury.
Prediction: Fleetwood Town to win
Odds: 1.99 Pinnacle
