Sheff Wed to Win

Our first Shrewsbury vs Sheff Wed prediction backs the visitors to record a win they need much more. The Owls still have a slim chance of stealing an automatic promotion but for that to happen they will need to win every remaining match. Wednesday are certainly not giving up and they won 3 of their last 4 games. At the same time, ever since losing their playoff chances Shrewsbury’s motivation fell off a cliff. The Shrews have earned a single point from their last 7 matches.

Smith to Score Anytime

Our next free betting tip backs Wednesday’s top goalscorer Smith (13 goals) to find the back of the net. He is up against a Shrewsbury defence that failed to keep a clean sheet in 10 consecutive matches. Smith scored in 2 of the last 5 rounds and over the last 6 games he’s attempting on average 4.2 shots per match.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our final Shrewsbury vs Sheff Wed prediction is for the game to have at least 3 total goals in it. All of Wednesday’s last 4 matches went over 2.5 goals. Also, 7 of Shrewsbury’s last 10 games had at least 3 goals in them.

Shrewsbury vs Sheff Wed Lineups and Team News

Shrewsbury

The Shrews lost 0-1 on their visit to Bolton last weekend. Once again the lack of motivation was evident and the combination of injury problems and low motivation led to an awful run of results in the last 7 rounds (D1 L6).

Latest news

Coach Cotterill is not one to rotate much and he’s not expected to make too many changes to the lineup. He has some serious injury issues right now too. Last year’s regulars Nurse (left-back) and Udoh (striker) + midfielder Bayliss are all sidelined. Also,  Pyke and Flanagan are deemed doubtful.

Sheff Wed

The Owls had to come from behind at home against Exeter last weekend but in the end, they won 2-1. Fought well and deserved the win, but despite making it 3 wins in the last 4 Wednesday no longer control their own destiny. They trail Ipswich by 4 points and with only 2 rounds left an automatic promotion seems a distant possibility now.

Latest news

Promise to keep fighting and attacking-minded formation can be expected. Striker Windass should be over a minor knock on time and he could start up front next to Smith. Defender Famewo is also expected to overcome a knock and start the game. Midfielder Byers and full-back James are the only important players set to miss due to injuries.
