Shrewsbury vs Charlton Athletic
English League One
Date: Sunday, 13th May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:15 UK / 18:15 CET
Venue: Montgomery Waters Meadow, Shrewsbury.

Charlton Athletic were unlucky to lose the first leg of their semi-final tie with Shrewsbury Town in spite of being the better side on the pitch overall throughout the 90 minutes of play. The Addicks were in particular control in the opening 20 minutes when they could not break the deadlock mainly because of a fabulous display from Dean Henderson between Shrewsbury’s posts.

The team led by Lee Bowyer will now have a very challenging task to annul the one-goal deficit away at Montgomery Waters Meadow where the local crowd will no doubts make an electrifying atmosphere hoping to see their side progress to the promotional playoffs final at Wembley.

The Shrews have generally been fairly tough to break down lately, especially in front of the home crowd, and we can say Josh Magennis & company will face hard times finding the back of the net on Sunday.

Shrewsbury Town vs Charlton Athletic: Head-to-head

This will only be the seventh head to head encounter between Shrewsbury Town and Charlton Athletic.

The Blues won four and lost two so far as none of six meetings ended up without a winner.

Only two of six H2H matches saw both teams on the score line.

Interestingly, each of three H2H games played this season (including Thursday’s playoffs tie at The Valley) saw visiting teams snatching the spoils.

Shrewsbury Town vs Charlton Athletic: Prediction

The hosts will sit carefully art the back and try and keep it goalless for as long as possible. Since their defensive line proved out to be too strong for Charlton three days ago, we have reasons to expect the Shrews will be in position to keep things tight at the back in the reverse fixture as well. You can back Paul Hurst’s side to keep a clean sheet here at the odds of 2.50.

Under 2.5 goals FT should be a banker bet at the 1.57 based on what we saw in the first leg as well as based on the most recent H2H stats. Also, the stakes can hardly be greater now and none of two managers will want to take any risks here.

Shrewsbury Town vs Charlton Athletic: Bet Tips

  • Shrewsbury Town to keep a clean sheet @ 2.50
  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.57.
