Shrewsbury vs Peterborough
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 24th April 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Greenhous Meadow (Shrewsbury).
It has been a disappointing two weeks for Shrewsbury and they are about to miss out on automatic promotion. It all started when they were held to a goal-less draw at Bradford and then a defeat to Charlton and a draw to relegated Bury in back-to-back home games. Still third in the league, but their gap with second placed Blackburn is 7 points who are 1 win away from securing the second automatic promotion berth.
Peterborough were in the mix for play-off spots, but they too have dropped too many points in recent months. Defeats in the last three and only 1 win from the last 7 is enough to keep them 6 points outside the top six. Yet, play-off is mathematically possible for them, but realistic chances are long gone.
Shrewsbury vs Peterborough: Head-to-head
Peterborough are on a 9 match unbeaten run against Shrewsbury; 7 wins and 2 draws.
Six of their last 7 h2h meetings saw both teams scoring.
Peterborough had won in 3 of their last 4 away matches at Shrewsbury before a stalemate in the most recent one.
Shrewsbury vs Peterborough: Predictions
The Shrews are desperate for a win here if not for automatic promotion then for safeguarding the third place and avoid a tougher opposition in the play-offs. They do lack momentum as well, therefore a positive result is more than needed here.
Peterborough are on a rough patch as well, but they have a good head-to-head record at the Greenhous Meadow. Their away form at the moment is nothing to talk about, but I believe they got enough to pack a punch on already disappointed Shrews here.
