Shrewsbury Town Preview – Can Shrews avoid another defeat?

Four defeats out of their last five matches have resulted in Shrewsbury Town dropping down to 17th place in League One but the hosts are still safe from being involved in any late relegation dramas as they hold a nine-point cushion above the relegation zone.

This is perhaps just as well for Shrewsbury who have suffered defeats against Oxford United, Doncaster Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Lincoln City in quick succession while at home, The Shrews have lost their last three games on the trot.

Indeed, recent form has taken a nose-dive where Shrewsbury have been concerned as the hosts have managed to win just one of their last seven matches on home soil.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Oxford United Preview – Can U’s continue revival?

A previously poor sequence of results from mid-March through to early April had threatened to have a negative impact upon Oxford United’s bid for a play-off place in League One after The U’s had lost five of seven matches during that bleak period, but the visitors have responded in positive fashion.

Oxford United make their way to Shrewsbury for this vital clash having won four of their last five matches with victories over Crewe Alexandra, Shrewsbury Town (at home), Gillingham and Plymouth Argyle, so they’ll be in confident mood when they hit the road here.

However, if Oxford are to make the top six, they’ll need to improve upon results away from home as The U’s have lost four of their last five matches on the road.
