League One odds and tips as play-off chasers Gillingham host midtable Shrewsbury on Saturday afternoon.
The hosts have been in solid form recently, which has seen them shoot up the table and set up half a chance of a top-six finish ahead of the run-in, but they come into this fixture looking to bounce back from a poor 4-1 defeat at play-off rivals Blackpool on Easter Monday, in which they were ultimately second-best to the in-form Tangerines. Still, Steve Evans' Gills approach the final stretch just four points adrift of sixth-place, although having played up to three games more than some of the sides around them they probably can't afford any slip-ups if they're to upset the odds and sneak it.
Gillingham's recent at Priestfield this season leave something to be desired, with wins in fewer than half of their home games (nine of 20), but they've rectified that in recent weeks, taking 13 points from the last 15 on offer.
Shrewsbury, meanwhile, responded to the disappointment of Good Friday's narrow 1-0 defeat at Northampton with one of their best performances and results in months; a solid, hard-fought 3-0 victory over Plymouth, with all three goals coming in the second half, but reflecting their dominance: they only had 43% possession but registered 16 attempts to the vistors' three, and five shots on target to their solitary one. They'll be looking to replicate that here, while two wins from the last four matches and a 12-point lead over the relegation zone and up to three games in hand on the chasing pack has their third-tier status secure for another season.
Matches between these two sides have tended to be competitive, hard-fought affairs in recent seasons, with four draws and one win apiece from the last six meetings. A 94th-minute equaliser from Jordan Graham saw Gillingham leave Shrewsbury with a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in October.
