The Blues had way too many draws (6) after 12 rounds and sit down in the bottom half of the league standings coming into Saturday’s trip to Highbury Stadium. Nonetheless, they will travel there with an improved confidence following a 1-0 victory over Accrington Stanley last weekend.

The head coach John Askey obviously did a special effort in making his back line much tighter. The Shrews come into this having kept back-to-back clean sheets in fixtures with Walsall (0-0 draw) and Accrington Stanley (1-0 win). Can they keep such form going here against Fleetwood Town?

Fleetwood vs Shrewsbury: Head-to-head

Cod Army have a positive head to head record in matches with the Shrews.

The hosts won 4, drew 3 and lost 2 coming into the landmark 10th encounter against Shrewsbury Town.

The Blues, however, earned the domestic double over Cod Army in the previous term of League Two with two narrow wins (1-0 and 2-1).

Fleetwood vs Shrewsbury: Prediction

Maintaining such fine defensive record will be quite a big challenge for the Shrews knowing they’ll be up against a red-hot opposition here. Cod Army enjoyed their best performance of the season last Saturday when they demolished promotional hopefuls Doncaster Rovers 0-4 on the road to climb into the top half of the ladder.

Ched Evans, James Wallace, Ashley Eastham and Ashley Hunter were all on the scoreline within the opening 50 minutes of the affair at The Keepmoat. Evans thus took his league tally to six and he will be the main target in the final third for the team led by Joey Barton here.

The hosts could rely on Shrewsbury’s dreadful record on travels in this season. The Blues lost and drew three apiece without winning a single of six away matches so far in the campaign.

The win over Doncaster Rovers certainly lifted Fleetwood’s confidence and we expect them to shine once again here.

Fleetwood vs Shrewsbury: Bet Tips

  • Fleetwood Town to win @ 2.25 (5/4)
  • Fleetwood Town to keep a clean sheet @ 2.50 (6/4).
