Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town did remarkably well to hold Portsmouth to a goalless draw in the opening match of the season, and they are now eyeing their first win of the 2020/21 League One campaign. The Shrews left their hearts on the field in the goalless draw with the Pompey, with the team committing no fewer than 25 fouls. Defender Aaron Pierre, though, paid price four such approach, and, as a result, he is going to miss the Northampton game through suspension.
The Cobblers, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with AFC Wimbledon on day 1. Northampton Town were beaten by Shrewsbury Town in their last meeting at Greenhous Meadow, and given the Shrews’ display in the draw with Portsmouth, home win should definitely be considered. Summer signing Rekeil Pyke is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
