Wolves Prediction

Wolves will head into this 4th round FA Cup replay having dismantled Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday which has now placed Wolves in 7th place as the ‘best of the rest’ outside of the top six with a four point lead over 8th placed Watford.

Attentions now turn to the FA Cup where they were given a major scare by their League One opponents as they found themselves 2-0 down with just 15 minutes to go in the tie. However, Jimenez and Doherty saved Wolves’s blushes and they’ll now look to get the job done at Molineux tonight.

Wolves have won three of their last four matches in all competitions with wins against Leicester City 4-3, a 3-0 win over West Ham and 3-1 at Everton along with the 2-2 draw at Shrewsbury Town as the goals have flowed.

Indeed, 7 of Wolves’s last 8 matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals so we should see further goals this evening.


Key-Facts – Wolves v Shrewsbury Town

  • Wolves have won 3 of their last 4 matches in all competitions
  • 7 of Wolves’s last 8 matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • 5 of Shrewsbury Town’s last 6 matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals


Shrewsbury Town Prediction

Shrewsbury Town will be kicking themselves after holding a 2-goal lead with just 15 minutes remaining at the New Meadows as they make their way to the west midlands looking to repeat their heroics from 10 days ago.

However, since that epic 2-2 draw with Premier League Wolves, Shrewsbury Town have slumped to back-to-back defeats in League One to Bradford City 4-3 away and a 3-0 defeat at home to League One leaders, Luton Town, so confidence may not be as high as manager Sam Ricketts would have liked.

With no disrespect, this may well turn out to be Shrewsbury’s cup final and they’re expected to give it all they’ve got against a rotated Wolves squad so anything can happen, and with midfielders Norburn and Docherty (5 goals apiece) along with forward Okenabirhie (8 goals), they’ll likely pose a threat in attack.

5 of Shrewsbury Town’s last 6 matches in all competitions have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Betting Tips Verdict

The winner of this tie will be away at Bristol City but Wolves won’t want this to go into extra-time with their Premier League duties.
