Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Stadium of Light pits together Sunderland and Shrewsbury Town, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Sunderland aim to keep their promotion hopes alive, and they will give their best to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Plymouth. Defender Jordan Willis has joined Conor McLaughlin in the recovery room, but they should be the only absentees in the home team.
The Shrews, on the other hand, have been in a fine form in the League One of late, with the team recording four wins in the previous five league fixtures. Shrewsbury Town were beaten by Southampton in the FA Cup on Tuesday evening, and seeing that Sunderland are eager to climb to the playoffs berth, home win should be considered. In the first half of the season the Shrews defeated the Black Cats at Greenhous Meadow, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
