Shrewsbury Town vs Barnsley
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 23 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Montgomery Water Meadow (Shrewsbury).
Shrewsbury Town and Barnsley are going to face each other in the 15th round of English League One on Tuesday evening.
After being just one step away from getting promoted to the Championship in the last season, the hosts are having a pretty disappointing campaign. They are positioned in the bottom half of the table and they’ve celebrated just two victories so far.
John Askey’s side is having severe troubles in converting their chances into goals as they are one of the most inefficient sides in the competition.
Shrewsbury Town tied two straight defeats, however, their home performances haven’t been too bad as they managed to snatch the majority of their points when playing in front of their fans.
Barnsley are one of the hottest candidates for the promotion and they are currently sitting on the 5th place, being just two points behind the direct promotion spot.
However, their unbeatable run has been interrupted in the latest round with a 2-0 away defeat against Charlton Athletic.
Kieffer Moore and the lads have been doing a very good job in front of the oppositions’ goal, while their defence is one of the tightest in the competition.
The visitors have been putting fine away performances as they managed to celebrate four victories at away grounds.
Shrewsbury Town vs Barnsley: Head-to-head
These two teams had just two opportunities to face each other and in both matches of the 2015/16 season, the visiting team was more successful.
In both occasions, the crowd was able to enjoy three goals per match. Shrewsbury Town has been heavily defeated at their ground with a 3-0 scoreline.
Shrewsbury Town vs Barnsley: Prediction
This one is very hard to predict as the hosts are not as bad as their position on the table. We believe they are more than capable of snatching at least a point from this one and it wouldn’t be surprising if this clash ends with a draw.
Both teams have been involved in pretty high scoring matches lately and they have also been fairly productive in their head to head clashes. These two sides are more than capable of scoring in this one and the nets won’t remain still at the end of the match.
