Wigan can secure the League One title with a victory over Shrewsbury on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Wigan to Win

A run of five games without a win indicates that Wigan have been feeling the title race wobbles, though the Latics should be able to land the result they need to clinch top spot on the campaign’s final day this weekend. Wigan have already beaten Shrewsbury twice this season in league and cup, and the extra quality and motivation they wield should allow them to complete a hattrick of victories at The Shews’ expense.

Both Teams to Score

Wigan’s wobbly confidence was evident again in midweek when they let a two-goal lead slip at Portsmouth (2-3) and the Latics have kept only two clean sheets in their last nine assignments in League One overall. That record suggests a consolation goal should be on offer for Shrewsbury on Saturday and bettors are advised to consider a stake on both teams to score at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Will Keane to Score Anytime

Will Keane is neck and neck with Sunderland’s Ross Stewart in the race to win the Golden Boot in League Two and the Republic of Ireland international will be desperate to add to his 24-goal haul for the campaign against Portsmouth. Keane scored for third time in as many games against Portsmouth on Tuesday and the 29-year-old can make his mark again on Saturday.

Shrewsbury vs Wigan Match Preview and Team News

Shrewsbury

Elliott Bennett and David Davis are both out injured for Shrewsbury while Ethan Ebanks-Landell is considered a doubt at the back. The Shews are in 17th spot ahead of the final day of the campaign and they could move up or down a place depending on the outcome of the afternoon’s fixtures.

Wigan

James McClean, Curtis Tilt, Tom Bayliss, Scott Smith and Charlie Wyke are all in the treatment room for Wigan at present, while back-up defender Luke Robinson is also struggling for fitness. Wigan blew a two-goal lead at Portsmouth on Tuesday and they will need to match Rotherham’s result on the final day to land the title.
