Accrington or Draw

Despite the fact that Accrington have only 1 win in the last 10 rounds, while Shrewsbury have been near perfect in their last 7 league games (W6 D1), we think the hosts won’t lose this game.

The main reason why we make this Accrington vs Shrewsbury prediction is the dominance Accrington enjoy in the head-to-head for this fixture. Stanley are undefeated in their last 6 league matches against Shrewsbury (W3 D3).

Also, Shrewsbury have never in their 100+ history gone 5 consecutive away games without conceding a goal. We don’t think this will change now despite the Shrews keeping 4 clean sheets in a row on their travels in recent weeks.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our second Accrington vs Shrewsbury prediction focuses on the total goals market. We believe this will be a low-scoring match and that’s why we predict under 2.5 goals to be scored.

Our reasoning is that all of the last 4 head-to-heads between the sides had ended with under 2.5 goals being scored. Also, Accrington had gone under 2.5 goals in all of the last 3 rounds. To add to that Shrewsbury went under 2.5 goals in all of their last 3 away league games.

First Half Correct Score: 0-0

We take a slight punt with our last Accrington vs Shrewsbury prediction as we think the correct scoreline at halftime might be 0-0.

Our reasons for that possible Accrington – Shrewsbury development are that both sides are known to start games slowly. Accrington are in fact the slowest starting team in the entire division with only 3 first-half goals scored all season. Shrewsbury tend to start slow on the road too. They score their first goal on average only in the 43rd minute away from home and concede in the 47th. Also, Shrewsbury have kept 4 consecutive away clean sheets, so they rely on their solid defence and are never in any hurry to take needless risks.

Accrington vs Shrewsbury Line-ups News and Form

Accrington

Stanley are under serious pressure and battling for survival after being able to win just once in the last 10 rounds.

Some good news for the coming fixture should boost the confidence though. Important Nottingham and Conneely are fit again, both likely to start.

Accrington are still without 7 sidelined players, including important midfielders Hamilton and Pritchard. Also, main goalie Savin and regular centre-back Tharme are considered doubtful.

Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury moved into the top half of the table after a run of 6 consecutive wins, which stopped only on Tuesday with a decent 0-0 away draw against Exeter.

The Shrews are missing for some time their main left-back Nurse and star striker Udoh. Further issues in defence for the coming match – Pennington and Moore are considered doubtful. At least Flanagan can return after suspension.
