AFC Wimbledon vs Shrewsbury Prediction & Match Preview

AFC Wimbledon vs Shrewsbury
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 3rd November 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/16.00 CET
Venue: Kingsmeadow (London).

A battle to avoid relegation is due on Saturday as the Dons host Shrewsbury Town in League One.

The hosts are second from last in the table and are finding hard to win matches. They have lost 11 of their matches and have only 3 wins from 16 games.

Currently they are on a 6 game losing streak in the league and have conceded 10 goals in those games scoring just 1 in return.

Conceding goals has been a trend for them this season with a total of 24 goals conceded in the league already. They are the lowest scoring side in the league with 10 goals.

At home a 5 game losing run in all competitions was broken with a win against Oxford United but they are currently on a 3 game losing streak after that and have only 1 win in last 10 games.

The visitors have 3 wins and 2 defeats in previous 6 games from all competitions. In their last 5 games, 4 had over 2.5 goals scored and they don’t have a clean sheet in 4 of those 5 as well.

The Blues are just 4 points ahead of the Dons and are very much possible to end up in relegation zone without a win. In this season they have won 3 and lost 7 of their 16 games in the league and are also poor in both scoring and defending.

The team managed by John Askey are winless in 8 away games, losing 5 of them and have lost the last 2 matches on their travels.

The Wombles manager Neal Ardley does not look like a man to lead the team, which have no hopes as of now to stay in this level.

AFC Wimbledon vs Shrewsbury: Prediction

Both the sides are having problems in front of goal. The visitors have 5 goals in last 8 away games. But those goals came against Portsmouth, Fleetwood and Luton which are far better teams than them.

Also the home side have scored in 6 of their last 9 home matches and against sides like Sunderland and West ham in the EFL Cup too. So both the teams have scored against better defenses. Thus a bet for both the teams to score can be placed with 2.20 odd.

The only win at home for the hosts was against the team in relegation Oxford United. Also they have lost the recent h2h at home against the same opposition. So we can make bets on Double Chance for a draw or the visitors winning with 1.55 odd.
