Football – England – League One Betting Tips
Fleetwood Town will no doubt be looking forward to returning to their Highbury Stadium again for their clash against Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night as they look to register back-to-back wins on home turf following Saturday’s 2-1 win over Chesterfield.
I say this as Fleetwood have lost five of their last six League One matches away from home but form at Highbury has remained steady as they head into tonight’s clash on the back of a four match unbeaten run having racked up wins over Peterborough United, Gillingham and the aforementioned Chesterfield.
Because of their poor results away from home, Fleetwood currently sit in 10th place but with a home record of 5-3-1 16/11 behind them here, they look to be well placed to take something from tonight’s encounter.
Visitors Shrewsbury Town currently sit second from bottom in the English third tier following a poor start to the new season which has seen The Shrews record just three league wins so far in this campaign.
Two of these wins have been registered at their Greenhous Meadow ground with wins over Chesterfield and Oxford United while they’ve tasted success only once on their travels so far with a 3-2 win at third from bottom club Oldham Athletic.
Shrewsbury’s overall away record reads a disappointing 1-3-5 9/16 as they’ve now gone six matches on the road without a win following that victory at Oldham.
The momentum definitely appears to be on the side of the hosts here but again I’ll give the quarter ball on Fleetwood as Shrewsbury may dig in for a point here.
Pick: Fleetwood Town AH-0.25 @ 1.52 bet365
