Reason For Fleetwood Town vs Shrewsbury Betting Tips

The ever-impressive Shrews were finally undone last weekend, as they lost at home to an in-form Plymouth side. Having been so good all season, Paul Hurst’s men were bound to lose a close game sooner or later, especially since they had edged ahead in so many. Such a result shouldn’t detract from the fact that Shrewsbury are still one of toughest teams to face in League One. Against a Fleetwood side who’ve disappointed this season, the visitors will fancy their chances of bouncing back.

Having had their weekend fixture called off, Fleetwood should come into this match fresher than their opponents. After a string of defeats, Uwe Rosler’s men will be desperate to regain the winning thread, though this is no easy task.

Shrewsbury may well have lost last time out, but this might just be the perfect fixture for them to bounce back. If at their best, Fleetwood aren’t anywhere near as bad as their league position suggests, but they have really struggled to get their heads in front, while, as they’re chasing wins, they’re looking more and more like a team that is susceptible to the counter.

With Shrewsbury being an effective counter-attacking side, especially away from home, the bet that stands out at the prices is ‘Shrewsbury to Score Over 1.5 Goals’.

Shrewsbury’s stand out quality, especially on the road, is their ability to nullify opposition threats, but they’ve also proved themselves to be strong on the break, as away performances at Bristol Rovers, Portsmouth, Southend, Rotherham and Doncaster have suggested. The Shrews notched at least twice in four of those five matches. Against a Fleetwood side who will attack on home soil, the wily visitors will be backing themselves to profit on the counter.

Recent matches really have suggested that Fleetwood have lost almost all of the defensive solidity that made them so effective at this level last season. Having conceded at least twice in each of their last three league matches, and having not kept a clean sheet in six, it’s easy to see the hosts faltering from a defensive point of view. What’s more, Rosler’s men have conceded at least twice in each of their last five league matches at Highbury Stadium, failing to guard against the counter on each occasion.

In truth, the hosts can still be a good side if they get things together and they do have some very good players, especially in the final third, but they unfortunately find themselves in the position of needing to chase wins. On this basis, it’s easy to see the visitors hurting what has proved to be an easy-to-breach back-line.
