          Shrewsbury vs Peterborough Predictions, Tips & Stats

          Peterborough will be aiming to close the gap to Portsmouth at the top of the League One table as they are set to travel to The Croud Meadow to take on Shrewsbury on Saturday afternoon.

          After a mixed first half of their campaign, Shrewsbury are currently occupying the 13th position in League One, having gained 27 points from their 22 league games so far this season. This has come following 8 wins, 3 draws and 11 defeats.

          Shrewsbury come into this game following a mixed run of form which has seen them record three wins, two defeats and one draw from their last six league outings.

          In their last league outing, Shrewsbury were comfortably defeated by Portsmouth who look to be running away with the league. Kamara opened the scoring just before half-time, bundling home from close range after a goalmouth scramble. Pack doubled the lead in the 62nd minute with a neat finish from inside the box, before Kamara sealed the win late on after being played through on goal.

          The Visitors are currently flying in League One and find themselves sitting in second place in the table after picking up 41 points from their opening 21 league games. Peterborough come into this weekend on the back of a highly impressive run of form which has seen them go undefeated in their last five league outings, winning four.

          In their last league outing, Peterborough narrowly defeated Fleetwood thanks to a first half goal from Archie Finn Collins. The Posh dominated the games possession, recording an impressive 73%.

          The fixture of Shrewsbury vs Peterborough has a long and storied history, with the two sides first meeting coming in the 1959 FA Cup, a game in which Peterborough ran out 4-3 winners. In total, the two sides have met on 61 occasions, with Peterborough winning 22, Shrewsbury winning 21 and there being 18 draws.

          This fixture has been evenly matched in recent years, with Shrewsbury winning three and Peterborough winning three of the last six meetings between the two sides. This has proven to be a high scoring fixture, with there being three or more goals in all of the last three meetings between the two sides.

          Unsurprisingly, given these side’s respective from heading into thai weekend, it is Peterborough who are heavily favoured at the bookies and are currently priced @ 11/20, whilst a home win for Shrewsbury is currently priced @ 9/2.

          We are backing Kwame Poku to score and Peterborough to win as they come into this game on the back of a highly impressive run of form and Poku is Posh’s leading goalscorer so far this campaign.

          Shrewsbury Team News

          Key defender Tom Flanagan sits suspended, forcing a shake-up in the backline. Veteran Elliott Bennett and in-form forward Ryan Bowman are knocking on the starting XI door, vying to replace the out-of-sorts Christian Saydee. Midfielders Rekeil Pyke and Carl Winchester impressed after halftime against Derby, making Cotterill's midfield choices even trickier.

          Peterborough Team News

          A clean bill of health gives the Posh boss maximum firepower, leaving him with some "agonising" selection decisions. Jonson Clarke-Harris' goal scoring form is keeping rivals at bay, but Rekeil Pyke and the returning Ollie Norburn offer tempting midfield options. Josh Knight's absence through suspension strengthens Josh Griffiths' grip on the gloves, while Dan Butler returns to bolster the backline.
