Victory for the away team

The away team should win this game. Despite winning only twice compared to six wins in previous 17 encounters, nine draws between these teams show that Gillingham is not a weak opponent. Of the nine draws, Gillingham bagged six draws on the road. The hosts sit last on the table, have conceded seven and yet to find the net after four games.

Few goals to be scored

We are also tipping few goals at full-time in this fixture. While the hosts have the worst defence and attacking front in the league right now, they hold a better record against Gillingham.  Moreover, a quest for the first victory of the season with a home match means we should expect a tough duel between these teams.

Gillingham to win first-half

The visitors are our favourites to go ahead at the break. Notably, in the four matches played so far, Shrewsbury has blundered by conceding first. Interesting, the first goals conceded by the hosts within that duration were in the first half. A similar trend is plausible in this fixture, especially with Shrewsbury’s terrible defending.

Match Preview: Shrewsbury Lookinhg for the First Win of the Season

Before placing a bet on our picks, take a minute to read our match preview below.

Shrewsbury

The hosts will look to get their first victory of the season in this fixture. Home advantage makes that looks possible. Moreover, the hosts have lost at home once to Gillingham, a record that should further motivate Steve Cotterill’s men before the big day. However, with no goal scored and seven conceded in the first four games of the season, Shrewsbury’s chances of bagging victory depends on how well-drilled they are defensively and offensively before this game.

Gillingham

Nine draws and only two victories in 17 encounters with Shrewsbury evokes bad memories for the visitors in this matchup. And while we are tipping the visitors to win this match, it is unlikely that they will score many goals. Perhaps it is time Shrewsbury players picked up themselves, especially against a team they have always trounced. For Gillingham, inconsistency is a big worry for head coach, Steve Evans. However, the fact that Evans boasts two victories over his Saturday host makes away win even more inviting for our liking.
