Shrewsbury vs Charlton Prediction & Match Preview

Shrewsbury vs Charlton
England- League One.
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Greenhous Meadow (Shrewsbury).

The Blues are without a win since December 2018 and they have lost 2 games in that span of time. The recent 4 games across all venues had a score with less than 2.5 goals. Things are different for the team managed by Sam Ricketts. His side is unbeatable in front of the home crowd since October last year.

A 10 game unbeaten run that includes 6 wins is currently active for them at home. In 6 of those 10 matches, less than 2.5 goals were scored. So Charlton will have to be at their best to win this game on Saturday.

The hosts are in the bottom half of the table and a win is a must for them. After scoring a good 29 goals in 26 games, they conceded 32 in return. This will prove costly against a better attacking side like Charlton.

Red Robins are in contention for a play-off position at the moment. With 47 points they are 4th in the table scoring 43 goals as well. From their last 5 matches across all venues, the Valiants have won and lost 2 games each. The most common score in that spell was 2-1 in 3 matches.

They are on a 2 games losing streak away from home and have lost 3 of their previous 5 matches on the road. All their previous 5 away games had the same score line- 2-1. So even though they have been scoring well, defensively they are facing problems.

Both teams are coming into this match at the back of a draw and will want to return back to winning ways through this match.
