Shrewsbury vs Charlton: Preview and Predictions

Shrewsbury vs Charlton Predictions-English League One-17th April 2018

Shrewsbury vs Charlton
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 17th April 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Greenhous Meadow (Shrewsbury).

Shrewsbury qualified for the promotion play-off with the goal-less draw against Bradford on the weekend. Yet, they are genuine contenders for automatic promotion as they sit at third and 5 points behind Wigan and Blackburn. It is a massive improvement from this side who were battling relegation in the previous season.

A win here will pull then closer to Blackburn who played 1 game more than them. Moreover, 4 of Shrewsbury’s 5 remaining games in the regular season are at their home turf. So, they have a chance trump one of the top two teams for a place in the championship without going to the play-offs.

Charlton are also pushing for promotion and they are only 2 points outside the top six. They could have been in the play-off zone already if not had lost their last two games.

Away form is another area of concern for Charlton as they managed only 1 win from the previous 6, drew 1 and lost 4. They have to be considered underdogs while going against a Shrewsbury side coming on the back of three consecutive home wins.

Shrewsbury vs Charlton: Head-to-head

Shrewsbury won 3 of the last 4 meetings with Charlton in all competitions.

The reverse of the corresponding League 1 fixture was a comfortable 2-0 victory of Shrewsbury.

The last two games at Shrewsbury’s home ground against Charlton saw the similar 4-3 full-time score.

Shrewsbury vs Charlton: Prediction

This is Shrewsbury’s game to win as they give little away to visiting teams at the Greenhous Meadow. On the other hand, Charlton are a capable side, but they do lack the consistency or squad depth to make a bigger push at the tail end of the season.

Thus, a home win looks good to me and expect goals at both ends as in most of their previous head-to-head games.
