English League one will experience one of the most entertaining action this weekend when Shrewsbury hosts Portsmouth at the Montgomery Waters Meadow. The match will start at 15.00 GMT on Saturday the 23rd March 2019. Portsmouth is doing well in the League One and is expected to continue this performance while away.
Shrewsbury is currently at position 18 of the League one table rankings. Of recent days, Shrewsbury seems to be doing relatively better. In their last 6 matches, they have managed 3 wins, one draw and 2 losses. In their last 6 home fixtures, Shrewsbury has won twice, drawn 1 and lost thrice.
At number 4 of the League One rankings, Portsmouth has a better chance of play-offs for a chance to play in the Championships next season. Likewise, if they play well, based on the number of remaining matches, they have a chance to make it to the top of the league. Portsmouth has been displaying a superb action both home and away. Their defense is not easy to breach. In their last 6 fixtures, they have managed 3 wins, 2 draws and lost once. However, their away record is not all that impressive.
We believe the hosts do not have all it takes to breach the defense of the travellers. Portsmouth has a strong defense and has the ability to score. However, all will not be roses for them as they will face relentless attacks from Shrewsbury. But what all matters is the end result. We are tempted to put our money for the away team to collect all the three points.
