Shrewsbury vs Walsall Match Preview
Shrewsbury ended a streak of two losses as Fejiri Okenabirhie netted a late equalizer at Coventry (1-1) last week, securing League One survival in a thriller chase to do so and now hosting Walsall for their final day clash hoping to celebrate with the home fans at Montgomery Waters Meadow.
Salop have been very unpredictable through most part of the campaign but we should now see them in a good mood despite the fact Sam Ricketts’ men search for their first home win since mid-March – with Portsmouth (0-2), Scunthorpe (1-1), and Oxford (2-3) all snatching points.
Walsall will be desperate to cause a similar upset after bagging a convincing 3-0 win over Peterborough last week, where goals from Cook, Lafferty (OG), and Gordon have them travelling to Shropshire with hopes of survival if both Southend and Plymouth Argyle slip up on the day.
Saddlers have thus only ended a streak of eight games without a win, though, where they suffered seven losses and only shared the spoils in a 1-1 home draw against Southend United along the way – which sees them in trouble they’re in and will surely be more worrying.
We will thus stick our necks out for Shrewsbury to end such hopes for the visitors and deny them points in a Draw, which comes at 9/4 with Paddy Power and looks like more than just a lively longshot at this point.
We’ve seen both sides scoring and conceding goals on the regular lately and with that in mind, we hope for a real thriller on Saturday as we go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/5 with bet365. Both have seen such occasions in four of the last six outings and this feels like further evidence with high stakes involved.
