Shrewsbury Town Preview – Can Shrews bounce back?

Shrewsbury Town were handed a 2-1 defeat away from home at Port Vale last weekend in League One but having previously posted back to back wins against Forest Green Rovers and Exeter City, Saturday’s hosts, Shrewsbury, will still feel confident about their chances of returning to winning ways this Saturday on home soil.

Overall results so far this season though have been a bit of a mixed bag for The Shrews who have also recorded a 2-1 win away from home at last season’s play-off finalists, Wycombe Wanderers, but the home side have also slipped to three defeats as well, thus ensuring Shrewsbury sit in a mid-table position in the third tier ahead of this weekend’s action.

The bigger picture shows that Shrewsbury Town have struggled to put any sort of winning or unbeaten run together in recent times in League One as the hosts have managed to record just three wins out of their last 15 matches overall, while on home turf at their Montgomery Waters Meadow, The Shrews have won just one of their previous seven games.

However, Shrewsbury have been a tough nut to crack for their upcoming visitors, Burton Albion, as the hosts have lost just one of the previous six meetings and given Burton Albion’s poor start to this new third tier season, Shrewsbury Town look to stand a decent chance of getting something out of this encounter.

Shrewsbury manager, Steve Cotterill, is due to ring the changes for the pending visit from Burton with goalkeeper Marko Marosi, while defenders Matthew Pennington, Chey Dunkley and Tom Flanagan are all expected to return to The Shrews defensive unit.

Burton Albion Preview – Can basement Brewers move off bottom place?

A few seasons ago, Burton Albion were plying their trade in the Championship and rubbing shoulders with the likes of Nottingham Forest, Brentford and Norwich City, but now The Brewers find themselves sitting bottom of League One with just four points under their belts and another four points adrift of safety ahead of this tricky looking trip to Shrewsbury Town.

Only last weekend saw Burton Albion pick up their first league win of this new League One season which came in the form of a creditable 2-0 win away from home at Exeter City which put an end to a miserable start to this campaign that saw Burton Albion fail to win any of their opening eight matches of this new term.

Indeed, prior to last week’s desperately needed victory, Burton Albion had failed to win any of their preceding 10 league games and having suffered a total of nine defeats within this woeful period of results, The Brewers are definitely not out of the woods yet as they still continue to battle against early problems at the foot of the table.

In addition, the bigger picture shows Burton Albion have registered just three wins out of their last 23 league games in the third tier, two of which were achieved on home soil at their Pirelli Stadium, while results away from home have unsurprisingly also been very poor, as the visitors have collected just one win from their last 14 outings on the road.

With just two clean sheets in their previous 21 away games in League One, Burton Albion are expected to be up against it once more this Saturday at Shrewsbury Town.
