Walsall vs Shrewsbury by Luke

Walsall couldn't do much more in the previous game played in League One, as the side visited Wigan, side that is fired up for promotion this season and does well for now, staying defeated with a 2:0 result, without properly showing their best possible potential in offense. Hosts opened the game better, reached the leading goal in 30th minute via Grigg and sealing the victory in 54th with another goal from the same player however this time via penalty kick.

It was second consecutive game without victory for Walsall, as they remained without only one in last six matches in League One. Currently are at sixteenth positin with thirteen points earned which is four more than relegating worries sides for now. During the midweek, they suffered defeat on a penalty kicks in Checkatrade Trophy at home against Coventry after a 2:2 draw in first ninety minutes.

Home team will miss important forward Tyler Roberts (7/3) who is with U21 national selection.

Shrewsbury is really on a nice run now, as the team leads the table so far and are looking on the field like a real promotional candidates, even though very low number of people expected them to make such a impress, especially not after the previous season when the side barely remained in the League One only havin two points more than relegated Port Vale and fighting it out in the last rounds of the competition.

They come from a impressive and professional 2:0 victory at home over Scunthorpe, with a goal in each halftime - firstly they opened the scoreline via Payne in 27th minute, while Morris sealed the victory in 87th minute, without much problems at the back for them. The side is now having nine victories and two draws, which puts them at the first position with four points more than Wigan, so a victory here surely is their target in order to keep up the momentum. They've also did well winning over West Brom U23 in Checkatrade Trophy during the midweek with a 3:0 score at home.

Guests will miss first choice goalkeeper Dean Henderson (10/0) who is with U21 national selection, plus injured forward Niall Ennis (1/0).

  • Last four mutual matches of these clubs ended with both teams scoring.

Guests are coming in a perfect mood here, no question about that - but the home team will surely be the one to play a bit more openly. Walsall does just well in front of own fans and do play a bit more attacking, something that makes me believe we have more than decent value with over odds.
