Charlton Athletic vs Shrewsbury Town Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Thursday evening (19:45) fixture is a first-leg of the League One promotion play-off semi-final.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Charlton were beaten on the final day of the season going down 1-0 to a Rochdale side seeking the points to avoid the drop.  Prior to that result they have won three straight matches which saw them end up sixth place.

Shrewsbury also lost their final fixture going down to a 1-0 loss to MK Dons which made it just one win in their last seven in all competitions.  They still though finished in third eight above their nearest rivals and 16 above their opponents here.

The reverse fixture came in February and it was the Shrews won that one 2-0 thanks to a goal each from Alex Rodman and Omar Beckles.  The sides met in mid-April and the Addicks got their revenge that day with a 2-0 victory through efforts from Josh Pearce and Josh Magennis.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

This is a tough game to call as Charlton have ended the season well with six victories from their last ten while Shrewsbury won just two of their last eight.  Though the visitors showed over the season they were the better team finishing 16 points higher. If you go on recent form the Addicks look the call or if you gone on the season the Shrews look the call.

Five of the last seven Athletic have played have ended 1-0 so while under 2.5 goals looks short I think going under 1.5 goals makes sense.  I also expect a cautious opening so take 0-0 in the half-time correct score market is a sensible approach.

 

Under 1.5 goals in this game

0-0 in the half-time correct score market.

 

Charlton Athletic saw over 1.5 goals in 5 out of their last 7 games played against Shrewsbury Town

Shrewsbury Town saw over 1.5 goals in 5 out of their last 7 games played against Charlton Athletic

Charlton Athletic Preview

The Addicks lost manager Karl Robinson towards the end of the season but the combined efforts of Lee Bowyer and Johnnie Jackson pushed them into sixth place.  They are looking to bounce back to the Championship at the second attempt.

At the Valley, they have been reasonably strong this season winning 11 of 23, drawing six times and losing just six.  They have won three of their last four in front of their own fans though did not win any of the four prior to that.

The last six Charlton league fixtures have been low-scoring with none going over 2.5 goals and producing a combined total of just seven goals.  55% of their league goals this season came in the second-half with 50% in the final ten minutes.

Tarique Fosu (hamstring) is likely to be unavailable until the final.

 

Shrewsbury Town Preview

It has been a remarkable season for Shrewsbury who most were tipping for relegation yet were always in the running for automatic promotion.  They ended the season in third with just one win in six but their fate was long ago confirmed so it is hard to know what to make of these results.

Away from New Meadow, only Wigan and Blackburn have won more games and no side have lost a lower number in the division than their four defeats.  They failed to win any of their last four road trips though three of these ended all-square.

Stefan Payne was the leading scorer for the Shrews this season with 11 goals though just three of these have come in the last 22.  Town have been behind just five times going into the break this season and been level in 13 of their 23 on their travels.

Abu Ogogo (knee), Toto Nsiala (fractured cheekbone) are doubts while Junior Brown (knee) is out for the season.
