Stoke City Prediction

Stoke City recently showed former manager Gary Rowett the door after slipping down the Championship league table after the hosts were involved in too many draws which had cost them valuable ground on the play-off pack.

The final straw came when Stoke were unable to record an away win in the 3rd round of the FA Cup at the first time of asking at tonight’s opponents Shrewsbury Town as this ultimately cost Rowett his job at the bet365 Stadium.

Not that Stoke City made an instant recovery as they crashed to another defeat away at Brentford losing 3-1 at the London club to mark an inauspicious start to new manager Nathan Jones’ first game in charge of The Potters.

Stoke have now lost three of their last four in the Championship and at the moment appear to be going nowhere fast as they prepare for the visit of Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night. The hosts appear to be wobbling with just 4 wins from their last 9 home matches in all competitions.

 

Key-Facts – Stoke City v Shrewsbury Town

  • Stoke City appear to be wobbling with just 4 wins from their last 9 home matches in all competitions
  • Shrewsbury have lost by 2 goals or more just once in their total of 16 away matches played this term
  • Shrewsbury have scored in each of their last eight away matches in all competitions

 

Shrewsbury Town Prediction

League One outfit Shrewsbury Town are without a win from their last six matches in all competitions but these games have been tight with only one match seeing Shrewsbury Town on the end of a heavy 3-0 defeat at home to play-off candidates Charlton Athletic.

Turning to Shrewsbury Town’s results away from home in all competitions now, and although The Shrews have managed just one league win on their travels so far this season, they’ve lost by 2 goals or more just once in their total of 16 away matches played this term.

That came in a 3-0 loss at Oxford United, but otherwise the visitors have stayed in games long enough not to receive a heavy defeat, and with Stoke City under new management and trying to find their way under Nathan Jones, this could be an opportunity to back the League One side here.

Midfielders Norburn and Docherty (5 goals apiece) look the most likely for the visitors in this clash.

Betting Tips Verdict

Stoke City are in transition and not particularly confident right now while Shrewsbury Town can at least avoid a heavy defeat here, if they lose at all.
