PREVIEW: Wycombe Wanderers

15 March 2019

Marcus Braddock previews Town's Sky Bet League One fixture against Wycombe Wanderers

This weekend Shrewsbury Town welcome thirteenth placed Wycombe Wanderers to Montgomery Waters Meadow in Sky Bet League One. The difference between Town and Wycombe is seven places but only four points with just nine points separating the bottom thirteen teams. With games running out, neither Shrewsbury or Wycombe are mathematically certain of League One survival next season so three points this weekend could make all the difference. Neither team has great form but Wanderers haven't won since January when they beat Plymouth at home and have lost six times in the nine games since.

They've conceded 34 goals away from home with 41% occurring in the first half and 59% in the second. They've scored 22 away goals which were coincidentally split in exactly the proportion, 41% to 59% in the second half.

James Bolton remains a doubt still with an ankle injury. 

Summary

We're getting toward the end of the season and the games are running out so we really need to find the form we showed against Doncaster and Peterborough. I honestly think there is more than enough quality in this squad to stay up but confidence seems a little changeable depending on how we're doing so we need a good start. We also need to hold it together defensively, again, we're more than capable of that with eleven clean sheets in League One this season, that's just under a third. We just need to find the form that saw us go five games unbeaten recently.
