Shrewsbury Town have made it into next season’s Championship with room to spare, Paul Hurst’s men sitting twelve points clear of fourth-placed Rotherham United with a game-in-hand. Nevertheless the Shrews will now have their sights firmly set on the League One title and with just five points separating them from the top-two in the league table and some excellent form behind them, there remains a very real possibility that they can close the gap on Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers between now and the end of the campaign.
It might be a bit of a tall order and Hurst will be praying that the top-two slip-up along the way as they have done several times of late, however the Shrews have a tough assignment on Tuesday evening when they line-up against a Charlton Athletic side which have a play-off berth within their sights.
You can back Shrewsbury Town to beat Charlton Athletic at 23/20, however you can claim some excellent price boosts and free bets from the leading bookmakers.
Charlton Athletic’s play-off hopes were dealt a blow when they lost 1-0 at home to Scunthorpe United in their last outing, this being their second defeat on the bounce. Lee Bowyer’s side have picked up just a single point in their last three League One outings – this coming courtesy of a 1-1 draw at bristol Rovers – and while they will be desperate to claw their way into the top-six on Tuesday evening, we don’t fancy their chances against a Shrewsbury Town side which have been something of a revelation this term, Bet365 Bookies going 23/20 on Shrewsbury Town to win.
