Competition: League One
Market: Shrewsbury to beat AFC Wimbledon
Odds: 3/4 @ Bet365
Still regarded to be one of the prime candidates to secure one of the automatic promotion places come the end of the season, on Saturday afternoon, Shrewsbury will look to continue their fine run of form as they welcome AFC Wimbledon to New Meadow.
For Paul Hurst’s Shrewsbury side, the Shres have become arguably League One’s surprise package this season. After only finishing three points above the drop zone last year, the Worchester outfit now know that the chance to bring championship football to New Meadow next season still remains in their own hands. Now sat second in the table, the Shrews currently sit four points adrift of Wigan in third. While they may have missed the opportunity to leapfrog Blackburn on Tuesday night, Hurst’s side are now unbeaten in their last five matches, winning four of those. With the second-best defensive record in English football’s third-tier Shrewsbury have also not conceded a goal at home in their last three appearances.
As for Niel Ardley’s Wimbledon side, the Wombles are currently involved in their own battle to secure League One football next season. While Wimbledon may sit in 19th position, they now only hold a four-point advantage over the bottom three and are far from out of the woods yet. The Wombles may have only lost one in their last five outings but it will be their form away from home that Ardley will be desperate to improve on as the fight for survival starts to pick up. They have now recorded just one away win in their last 12 matches in all competions, they have also only managed to keep a clean sheet on the road once since November 207.
