Shrewsbury vs Oxford Soccer Prediction Today
Shrewsbury stumbled into League One’s first two league seats, which ensured direct promotion in the Championship, after a disappointing defeat with a score of 3-1 in the last round on the Rochdale court. The game started very well for Shrewsbury, and Nathan Thomas managed to open the score in the 8th minute, but the defensive line (generally very strong) disappointed and then received three goals from the team still struggling to leave the relegation area.
Since Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers have managed to score in their last round, Paul Hurst (Shrewsbury) team has come down to the third position and is now forced to win the game against 17th place, Oxford United. Shrewsbury is at a point behind Blackburn’s second place, which also has a minus match (which means that the distance can be 4 points), and any other outcome than victory over the Oxford can mean leaving the race for Shrewsbury Town’s directly promoted venues.
Oxford United managed to score a point after scoring 1-1 on home ground against Scunthorpe United (a team in the play-off area for promotion) in the last round. However, the team trained by Karl Robinson showed badly in the last matches played in the field and will move to Shrewsbury’s stadium after winning a single point in the last 4 matches played away from home.
Moves to Montgomery Waters Meadow (Shrewsbury Stadium) did not go too well for Oxford United who lost seven times, twice drawn and won only once in the last 10 games played at this stadium. However, Oxford United got 4 points from the last two meetings with Shrewsbury.
Soccer Prediction of the Day Shrewsbury vs Oxford
Since Oxford United has suffered most of the time in the trips so far and considering that the guests were not too lucky to play against Shrewsbury on Montgomery Waters Meadow, I will bet on the victory both required for 3rd place winner, Shrewsbury Town, in her race for direct promotion in the Championship.
