Shrews to take 3 points
To be fair, both teams are not enjoying their best campaign; Shrewsbury are 16th on the League One table, while Lincoln are two spots below them. However, Shrewsbury have had a good run recently, they won their last two games, scoring eight goals; Steve Cotterill’s men have lost just once in their last six games. On the other hand, we have a Lincoln side that’s lost five of their last eight games; they’ve won just two of their last nine games. Shrewsbury have been relatively better, they also have the advantage of playing at home; for these reasons, we are making the prediction that Shrewsbury will emerge victorious.
Someone will fail to score
Shrewsbury have done a really good job defensively, especially recently; they kept five clean sheets in their last six games. In the same vein, Lincoln kept two clean sheets in their last three games; however, they failed to score in two of their last four games. Both teams’ recent games have mostly been one-sided in terms of goals; at least one team blanked in five of Shrewsbury’s last six, and in three of Lincoln’s last four games. With this in mind, we shouldn’t expect goals at both ends.
Going under 2.5 goals
Shrewsbury’s last three games have actually gone over 2.5; however it’s fair to point out that 12 of their last 16 league games went below the 2.5 goal margin. In like manner, Lincoln have had their fair share of low-scoring games; three of their last four games went under 2.5. Additionally, recent clashes between Shrewsbury and Lincoln have not produced a lot of goals; as six of their last eight games went under 2.5. On that note, this will likely be a low-scoring affair.
