Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
A place in the FA Cup round 2 will be at stake when Cambridge United and Shrewsbury Town face each other at Abbey Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The U’s have been producing fine displays in the League Two this season, and, no doubt, they are determined to secure automatic promotion to the League One. Speaking of League One, their Saturday’s rivals Shrewsbury Town compete in the English third tier.
The Shrews sit in the relegation zone after 11 rounds, and that is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. When the two teams met in the EFL Trophy four years ago Cambridge United defeated Shrewsbury Town, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. A man to watch in the home team will be top scorer Paul Mullin, who has netted 12 goals in the League Two to date.
