Tip Reasoning

  • Sunderland are unbeaten in their last eight matches
  • Both teams have scored in just one of Shrewsbury’s last 11 away league games
  • Sunderland have kept three clean sheets in their last four matches

Side with the hosts on Good Friday

Sunderland have resurrected their quest for a top-six berth in recent weeks and are now unbeaten in their last eight matches. Alex Neil’s side are inside the top-six on goal difference and have a game in hand on the chasing pack. The former Preston boss has begun having an impact on his side in the last month and The Black Cats performances have improved markedly. Sunderland have kept three clean sheets in their last four games and recorded and impressive 2-1 victory at promotion rivals Oxford last Saturday.

Both teams rarely score when Shrews travel

Shrewsbury have also enjoyed an upturn in performances recently and it is a run that has seen all relegation fears erased. They face a stern test at Stadium of Light on Friday and The Shrews have found goals hard to come by on the road all season. Steve Cotterill’s side are the third lowest scorers on their travels in League One this season having scored just 15 times away from home this campaign. Both teams rarely score when Shrewsbury are on the road – both teams have scored in just one of their last 11 away matches.

Sunderland have kept three clean sheets in their last four matches and host the third lowest scorers in the division on Friday. The main selection for this game will be Sunderland to win and both teams to score – No. Both teams have failed to score in ten of Shrewsbury’s last 11 away matches. In the correct score market, I will predict this finishing 1-0 to the hosts, a win that could go a long way to sealing a play-off place.
