Shrewsbury Town vs AFC Wimbledon
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 24 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Montgomery Waters Meadow (Shrewsbury).
Shrewsbury Town will be looking to rebound from an unexpected slip-up in mid-week when they only drew 1-1 away at the relegation strugglers Northampton Town. The Blues are thus a single point behind Blackburn Rovers at the top of the standing and they could well lose the second place soon knowing that the third-placed Latics are only one point below with two games in hand.
Paul Hurts and his men thus desperately need a three-pointer here and they will be favourites to get one against the likes of AFC Wimbledon. The local crowd will fancy the fact that the opposition has been winless in last five league affairs on the road (three losses and a draw). Team’s talisman Stefan Payne will have a nice opportunity to add to his nine-goal tally knowing that the Dons have been fairly easy to break down on travels in this term of League One.
Neal Ardley’s men sit two points above the drop zone ahead of the trip to Shropshire and they will be encouraged with a solid spell of form in the last couple of weeks. The Dons have lost just once in last five games.
Shrewsbury Town vs AFC Wimbledon: Head-to-head
The head to head stats speak in Shrewsbury Town’s favour as the hosts have won 3, drawn 3 and lost just 1 of 7 previous encounters with the Dons.
Shrewsbury Town have won three and drawn one of last four meetings between the two sides.
Four of last six H2H encounters have seen both teams on the scoreline.
Shrewsbury Town vs AFC Wimbledon: Prediction
Besides the domination in the most recent H2H history with AFC Wimbledon, the Blues will also come into the game as massive form favourites.
Backing the home win thus just has to be the way to go and we’ll shoot for it with higher stakes at the 1.75 odds.
Since AFC Wimbledon have been struggling to keep things quiet at the back on travels so far in the season, we also notice a decent value in backing Shrewsbury Town to net two or more goals at the odds of 2.10.
