Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town and Accrington Stanley, the two teams who are almost level on points in the League One standings, face each other at Montgomery Waters Meadow in what is expected to be a closer encounter. The Shrews aim to put an end to their eight-game winless run, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against John Coleman’s troops. Seeing that Accrington Stanley No. 10 Pritchard misses the game through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
The visitors did well to beat AFC Wimbledon 2-1 at home ground at the weekend, but their away record in the League One is anything but good. In the first half of the season Shrewsbury Town defeated Accrington Stanley 3-2 at Wham Stadium, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
