Stalemate between the two clubs

Shrewsbury and Burton have been struggling for wins. The visitors are particularly going through a period with eight games not giving three points for the team. Burton are also looking for the double over Shrewsbury after a narrow 1-0 win earlier in the campaign. However, Burton have lacked the confidence to make a sizable difference and Shrewsbury have done well to match opponents to a large extent in recent weeks.

Total goals less than 2.5

Shrewsbury have gone through a stunning run of five consecutive away games in which the total goals has not been more than 1.5 goals on four occasions. Burton are not exactly steeped in momentum and form going forward. In the last six matches, Burton have only managed seven goals.

Both teams to score – yes

Shrewsbury might be winless in eight games, but they have started creating chances in recent matches. Shrewsbury came close to getting an away point against Portsmouth but majority of the chances created by the team were from long distances. Even then, Burton’s defensive record of clean sheets since December should provide some consolation.
